What Our Customers Are Saying About Us

“It is with great pleasure that I and on behalf of Yennie and Luk Family (Larry, Connie & Ka Yui) write this testimonial to you, Francine and your whole team. We have been back only a short while and have not stopped talking about how wonderful the vacation was, how well everything was organised. You replied to us really efficiently every time and there were no hiccups during the journey. We would like to thank you for arranging a wonderful trip for us that exceeded all our expectations! It was a great idea and our fortune that you got Patrick as our personal chauffeur and guide to escort us around. We just had an amazing time from the minute we landed in Christchurch until we left. All the tours were amazing. We would definitely recommend your services to anyone who asks. We are so grateful that Ka Yui (Luk Family) found your company when she was googling for the NZ vacation on internet. We intend to do it again one day. THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts to you and Patrick for making our NZ Trip memorable! You will be the first person we contact when we plan our next vacation to New Zealand.” – Toh & Luk Family (SawTin, Yennie, Larry, Connie & Ka Yui).

“I just wanted to say how much Jo and I enjoyed our time in New Zealand. We really loved all the things we did and saw during our tour. I would also like to say how impressed we were with all the luxury lodges we stayed in. The experiences recommended by our personal consultant Francine were outstanding. Thank you for helping to make it a truly memorable holiday.” – Fran Franks.

New Zealand Travel Organiser Group

New Zealand Luxury Escapes is part of the New Zealand Travel Organiser group. After working in the Tourism industry for 20 years, and with a Bachelor of Tourism, and a Bachelor of Commerce, Francine saw a gap in the market.  “There were so many travellers coming to New Zealand with little knowledge about where to travel to, how far the travelling distance was to their next destination, where best to stay and the general structure of their holiday around New Zealand. This is the very reason we specialise in offering top rated New Zealand vacations, crafted just for you.”

The business was set up with thought and care, the team has grown and the amount of thrilled clients has also rapidly grown. Bringing us to the current day, 11 years on, New Zealand Luxury Escapes operate a highly successful business with professional consultants working alongside high-end clients, like you, to ensure the perfect New Zealand Luxury Vacation is booked on your behalf.

Our company philosophy is to deliver the most incredible New Zealand vacations available on the market. We achieve this through our expert local knowledge, our attention to detail, our extremely high level of customer service and our passion for ensuring the New Zealand vacation you book through us is without a doubt your best vacation yet.

We look forward to working with you!
