Established in 2015 nzsidekick is part of the New Zealand Fine Touring Group. We have been showing individuals around New Zealand for almost 20 years and have been lucky enough to help agents do the same for the last 7. Based in Wanaka we are in the heart of New Zealand's spectacular south island. We are right amongst the ski fields an hour from Queenstown and just a couple from the west coast or Mt Cook.
