We are delighted to have been named Best Specialist Tour Operator at the Telegraph Travel Awards 2019 and that New Zealand was recognised as the world’s best country by Telegraph readers for the 7th year running. Many thanks to our clients for voting for us. As an independent UK based company we truly appreciate your support.


Here’s what The Telegraph had to say about us –

Given that New Zealand once again won our best destination category, it is perhaps no surprise that one of the leading specialists in arranging holidays there has done so well. Buxton-based New Zealand In Depth has been in business since 2003 and takes a distinctive approach to customer service. Individual bookings are looked after by the same member of staff from the outset and that person is responsible for honing and then delivering the itinerary.  The staff are experts in all aspects of the country and they work particularly closely with partners on the ground, having developed long-standing relationships with accommodation suppliers, guides, drivers and so on. New Zealand in Depth also supports local tourism and environmental projects – in short, it is the model of how a specialist tour operator should work, and it has clearly impressed Telegraph readers over the last year and more.
