"Smartourism is a key partner and source of trade ready tourism operators that we, as an IBO, can use for our business to provide offshore clients with local New Zealand experiences as part of their travels through the country. Marijke exudes a high degree of professionalism and consistently follows up with each operator where business connections offer a good fit, assisting with first hand experiences and further facilitating these relationships.
