My tours offer personalised small group, day tours to Mount Cook,Akaroa, Farm Visits, wineries, Arthurs Pass, Kaikoura, and Hanmer Springs.I offer homestay in my home with food grown in my organic garden. Cruise ship tours from Akaroa are also available. This is my 17th year guiding and I speak English and Japanese. My modern air condition vehicle seats 9 guests but I can hire and drive larger buses if needed. Happy to help in any way to create a memorable tour in our beautiful island. « less

Thanks Craig and Keiko, Our second trip to New Zealand this past October was as enjoyable as the first was -six years earlier when we first had the pleasure of Craig's services. Craig is without doubt the best, the most knowledgeable and the most delightful guide in all of New Zealand. Beginning with the tour of the North Island, the... More

WOW...what can I say about a tour of some of the nicest gardens we have ever seen. Nancy & Bryan Tichborne have the nicest place, hidden on a country road (We thought that Craig was lost) and they are such wonderful hosts and tour guides. We felt very much at home. Nancy's descriptions of her collection was great. I have... More

We really enjoyed our experience with Craig from CanNz, touring from Christchurch to Queenstown New Zealand. Craig picked us up at our hotel, arranged for our TranzAlpine train tickets, put us on the train, even seating us on the more picturesque side. He then met us at Arthur's Pass and drove us on to Fox Glacier. The next day he... More

Enjoyed the garden + organic tour so much - It was such a unique tour which can enjoy beautiful local gardens and truly Kiwi experience. Nature, food , people - everything was very impressive and unforgettable. It is not like an ordinary sight seeing bus tour at all.

We had Craig bring us around Christchurch to the northern tip and then to Queenstown via Mt Cook. He was the type who would work with you to bring out the best of your holiday by personalizing your trip way before you start. The places we had requested him to bring us to, in addition to the award winning gardens,... More

Craig is on time even when it is raining on the day of my tour. He is very felxible in changing and adjusting to the plan. We love the garden tour, and he cook very well for us. We enjoy his warm hospitality for the trip.

Craig is very knowledgeable and attentive to our interests. He goes the extra mile and made it better than our visit to the Botanic Gardens! We ended our tour with a lovely home made afternoon tea with scones, cream and jam. If we're in Christichurch again, we will want Craig to take us around from Christchurch to Mt Cook, Queenstown...

We had a wonderful and memorable time for our Queenstown via Mt Cook to Christchurch tour with Craig. He is very personalized, helpful and even went the extra mile to prepare our requested mushroom soup for our picnic lunch! (He is also a very good cook!!!!) He is also very knowledgeable and humorous. Regardless what queries we have, he seems... More

All six of us enjoyed the day. His itinerary and thoughts for the 5-6 hours, were combined with out thoughts, which turned... More
