We did the Aoraki Mount Cook day tour from Christchurch and at first we were a little hesitant because of the long drive...but man, the views were spectacular and the commentary by our driver and guide, Rodney O’Brien just made the trip even better. He was so extremely

Thank you so much for the glowing review! It makes it all the more better that it was thanks to your driver/guide, Rodney, that you had such a great day out. We'll definitely pass on your kind words to him. You are right that it is a long day out with the drive to Mt Cook and back again. The fortunate thing is that the drive is excellent with so many stunning views and locations to visit along the way, which really makes the day go quickly. Visits to the Tasman Glacier and Lake Tekapo really add to this tour and affords some excellent photo opportunities, and it's all the more better when you have a great guide providing information on this beautiful part of New Zealand. Thanks again for the review and I hope you get to visit Christchurch again soon!

Very rude driver on city tour. (15/11/19) This cowboy seemed pretty bored with his job and lacked professionalism. Also a pretty inconsiderate driver and seemed to enjoy upsetting traffic behind us as not willing to pull over while driving way too slowly on windy road from

The review states it relates to a city tour on the 15th November, in which case the tour driver was an employee of ours by the name of Rodney. Rodney has been an employee of our for the past 6 years and a professional tour driver for more than 30 years. We have never previously had any negative comments with regard to Rodney’s professionalism commentary or driving ability, in fact you will see from other reviews that there is nothing but positive praise and appreciation for his tours. The contents of this review are questionable as although there are some layby's on the road round Lyttelton's inner harbour there are no passing lanes. And having spoken to other passengers on this tour who travelled with us the following day, they had nothing but praise for Rodney and the tour.

Kevin assisted me with a group of 26 people for Napier & Picton. He found a tour for us even though I reached out to him last minute. He is extremely professional and patient with answering all of my many questions via email despite the (major) time difference. All of his
