New Zealand Fine Touring Group

Travel Broker nzft 275x155

We are a specialist inbound operator based in New Zealand. New Zealand, especially touring holidays, is all we sell.

We believe we live, love and sell the most extraordinary country in the world. We are so blessed to base our business in one of New Zealand’s most iconic tourism destinations, the heartland of tourism - Wanaka. Our drive to work every day alongside the beautiful Lake Wanaka and under the watchful eye of the snow-capped mountains reminds us of how truly lucky we are to live here and how driven we are to make sure that as much of the world as possible experiences the beauty of New Zealand for themselves.

The business has been successful for over 12 years now and from the start had a very simple customer focused philosophy - ‘an uncompromising determination to deliver the best experience’. While we’ve grown and changed considerably since those early days that one simply philosophy still drives us now.

Helping visitor’s experience our beautiful country and all it has to offer is what we do best and through our nzsidekick brand we work with travel agents the world over to help their clients experience the same.

We are lucky to be able to work with a team of 24 people who also share the same values and philosophy as we do. They are experts on everything ‘New Zealand’ and would love to talk to you about any New Zealand.

The business is privately owned and you can talk to any of us at any time.

Get in touch and let’s make your holiday dreams come true.

We have been working with New Zealand Fine Touring and their nzsidekick brand (herein NZFT) for some time now and what a difference it has made with regards to bookings to New Zealand. The NZFT system itself is without doubt a powerful tool, enabling not only multi layered tours to be put together in seconds but also accommodating our clients individual tailor made requirements with speed and accuracy. The presentation of itineraries is without doubt an industry leader, there is nothing better.

From an internal perspective, it is the ease of use of the system that enable us to respond quicker to client's needs than any other Tour Operator. This with the impressive front end delivery to customers has made us the most efficient booking Tour Operator in the UK and Ireland with a conversion rate of over 30%, the industry norm to NZ is between 12-15%.

Since working with NZFT our New Zealand business has tripled, making a huge difference not only to our business but also to New Zealand Tourism in general.

Kind regards

I am writing to express my sincere pleasure working with your company. I have been in the travel industry for over 30 years and remember back when travel agents and wholesalers had strong partnerships. Unfortunately some of the relationships have faded in the face of industry changes, consumer internet accessibility, etc, but your company stands out as one who is still a true partner with travel agents in every sense of the word.

Your website is exceptional and we love having your presence on our agency website. It excites people into wanting to visit your beautiful country, and offers them every reason to make New Zealand their next vacation destination. Your staff is truly exceptional and offers optional tours and experiences, upgrade opportunities, and helpful, etc that otherwise the clients, nor the travel agent for that matter, may have considered. Everyone in your organization is truly proud of their country and wants each and every client to experience in a way that fits into their lifestyle, time frame, budget and adventure level.

I cannot say enough superlatives about working in conjunction with a company such as yours. My only regret is that not every call that comes in to my office wants New Zealand...but we're working on it!
