He was very outgoing and VERY knowledgeable about the area and the country. We learned so much from him that carried over to our entire stay. By the... More

My husband and I did a private tour one day and a semi private tour another day for the TranzAlpine Tour with Craig. The day was planned out perfectly! We felt like every moment was utilized perfectly. The TranzAlpine itself is fairly spectacular (make sure you go out to the viewing platform in the beginning and then go sit down!).... More

My wife, son and I decided on a quick 5 day tour of South Island. Not really wanting to drive ourselves (or worse joining the large tour buses), but wanting to take in the scenery at leisure - Craig to the rescue. Very comfortable and large vehicle, headed off towards Mt. Cook on Day 1. Craig is a great conversationalist,... More

What a wonderful experience we had with our guide Craig, who was very professional and accommodating to our busy schedule. We strolled the beaches and hiked the countryside with a VERY good organic lunch near the beach. We even were sure to get and bring home the same yogurt maker he had back to Guam!

We had a fantastic day trip and nothing was a bother for Craig. The whole day was a wonderful experience, professionally managed and was adapted to suit our requirements from the day. Craig is a very friendly and knowledgable guide and it was a pleasure to be with him for the day tour. Many thanks again.
