A tour operation which specialises in revealing hidden gems and stories around Auckland is resonating with trade, as well as the city’s locals and visitors.
‘We have had agents reach out to us since we launched,’ says White Glove Experiences founder and director Jacqui Wilkinson. ‘A number of them are trying to gain more traction in domestic and are looking ahead.’
Wilkinson says White Glove is focused on the domestic market, priced accordingly and running an ‘event-like’ programme rather than traditional tours.
A group designed to ensure that small operators in the tourism sector get their say in the future of tourism has grown from a handful of members to more than 120 in its Facebook group in the space of a week.
