We took Craig's tour to Mt. Cook, and our entire family enjoyed him and the tour very much; definitely a highlight of our trip to the South Island. Throughout our drive he picked perfect locations for breathtaking views, and even took some family photos for us (all of which were very good!). The food that was provided for morning tea... More

Craig took us on a tour of Christchurch where we were able to see both the heart-breaking devastation which the city suffered through the earthquakes, but also some wonderful beauty spots and glorious scenery which showed us that this city still has so much to offer. We also enjoyed a home stay with him and his partner Keiko when we... More

We also enjoyed a relax morning tea and fantastic picnic lunch in our tour. My family and I were pleasured to... More

It is our kids' first trip to experience weather below 10 degree celsius. Craig was warm and approachable. He was very good with them with his jokes and personal touches. We learnt much from his life outlook and can feel how much he loves his country, environment, people and animals. My kids aged 7 n 12 loved the breakfasts he... More

Craig was a very courteous host, gave a highly informative commentary throughout the trip, enquired as to our particular interests and was quick to point out along the way anything which he thought would fit these interests. He was also very obliging in... More

Excellent guide, friendly and knowledgeable. The cooked food is a plus!. We are strict vegetarians (no onion no garlic) and he had no problems cooking something up from his organic garden. We enjoyed ourselves and the picnic/ cooked lunch by the river was quite cosy if not for the sudden and short rain. If you're travelling with more people the... More
