Just 20 km north of Kaikoura in the summer there are seals resting on the rocks right beside the road. You don't even need to get out of your car to see them.

We took Craig's Mt Cook / Aoraki day trip tour in January 2013. We were going to be in Christchurch for 2 nights before leaving New Zealand, and really wanted to use the opportunity to see Mt. Cook. I cannot say enough good things about our tour with Craig - it was absolutely the highlight of our New Zealand trip.

Of course, Mt. Cook and the Southern Alps are absolutely stunning, but one thing we didn't expect was to enjoy the journey there and back so much (all thanks to Craig)! Craig is so knowledgeable about the entire Canterbury region - we learned a ton about the area's history and nuances. He is very relaxed, friendly, and fun. Along our way, we stopped at different sites, took photos, and ate delicious food (Craig is a farmer and an amazing cook).

If you're looking for a tour guide, whether for a small group like ours or a larger group, I very highly recommend contacting Craig. He is flexible, knowledgeable, accommodating, and all all-around great guy!

We had Craig to bring us to Arthurs Pass on our last day in NZ. Craig is very hospitable, knowledgable and very on the ball. A really good trans alpine trip that includes excellent farm visit and a boat ride.

We are grateful to have Craig Rome as our driver guide during the 1 week NZ South Island trip. He is a friendly, helpful and responsible person . He will always ensure we've seen the most beautiful part of NZ with good weather and great scenery. He is a safe driver, drove almost 1500km over 1 week time; good chef with our favorite dishes; my personal photographer with many beautiful photos taken and very informative guide with every single thing about NZ. With Craig around, we had peace of mind and enjoy ourselves to the max with lots of great memory. I highly recommend Craig Rome for flexible and enjoyable holiday in NZ.
