They did tell us that there was no public Coach on that route.So when Kim arrived and we started our journey in a very comfortable car we were... More

We had booked a tour of Dunedin prior to leaving Glasgow. Kim communicated with us prior to our arrival in Dunedin, just to make sure that everything was in order. And when we arrived, it could not have been more perfect. Kim is an excellent guide, and gave us wonderful suggestions for our day. He tailored the tour specifically for... More

Hi Andrew D Thanks for your review. As a small group tour operator one of the most important things for us is having that flexibility to modify the itinerary on the fly. Dunedin can be a complex city to visit (in many ways - not just the weather :) but there is so much to see here, we can be... More

Prebooked city tour, botanical gardens and Larnach Castle with Iconic during New Zealand cruise with Celebrity Solstice. Ann was so pleasant to spend the day with, and an outstanding guide. Almost made us sorry that our port stop was only one day. Do ask if there is time to visit the Cadbury retail store if not part of your tour!... More

Hi Kim M We are so glad you had fun with Ann on your tour. Ann is proving to be our most popular guide and the rest of us are wondering what her secret is... maybe it is Hokey Pokey icecream?
