We travelled with Craig of Can NZ for a day trip to Mt Cook in March 2014. 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

Craig was so patient (family of 10, including 4 boys), so knowledgeable and so friendly. Our experience was amazing and I highly recommend you book Craig for your tour.... 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

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.... More

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.
