Local Experts Make International Travel to New Zealand Unique, Boutique, and Affordable

Celebrating New Zealand's unique travel experiences isn't easily done with the packaged tours of the online travel market. Rejecting the typical itinerary and big box hotels, Fresh Tracks New Zealand is determined to offer a local perspective to New Zealand's hidden gems with a new line of "Unique and Boutique" vacations, emphasizing smaller properties and sights known-only to locals.

"Small hotels, off-the-beaten-path towns, and unique natural attractions are difficult to track down online, so more and more travelers booking online are unwittingly accepting cookie cutter tours to "Tourist Hot Spots," says John Parker, CEO Fresh Tracks Travel. "These travelers are stuck in homogenized hotels and tour buses where they're about as close to the real New Zealand as they were when browsing the web."

This new line features six Unique and Boutique vacations, created by the joint efforts of a native Kiwi, seasoned New Zealand travelers, and the expectations and wants of those who've never been, to create packages that will appeal and offer unique experiences, whether it's your first time or your fifth.
