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.

We took a day trip to Mount Cook with Mr.Craig back in July 2012. He replied me prompltly through emails when I was booking the tour with him. He also suggested us to combine the trip with another couple who had booked the trip on the same day so that we can divide the costs. The one day trip was... More

The weather seemed bleak from the Sun Princess but Craig, our tour guide, texted "Don't worry about the weather, they are just Scottish tears.", so began our wonderful day with CanNZ tours. As we started our scenic tour to Christchurch through Banks Peninsular, the weather cleared. Craig took us passed the most wonderful mountain scenery. We stopped for morning tea... More

We had a great time, venturing the outskirts of Christchurch. Managed to catch a whole diverse environment different than that of the city. Craig was such a great guide, with fantastic knowledge and understanding of the area. I would certainly encourage and promote others to sign up for this unforgettable experience.

Mr Craig took me and my group round all the major sporting sites of Christchurch, then a great trip down to the major ski fields around Wanaka - Treble Cone and Cardrona. By the end of the trio, he was like an uncle to me, such was the level of his service.
