We booked Steve for our tramping shuttle driver, but we got so much more. A history of the island, its people, the plants and the wildlife. Steve has a passion for this island and a great way of telling a tale. He also ensured we got our flights out after one airline wanted to bump us off. I plan to... More

Thanks Steve for getting us to and from the various tramping tracks and always having a story to tell. And for organising our flights off the island when we were out of cell phone range. We all got home safely after a fantasic 5 days on what must be New Zealands best kept secret. Joy and the groupies

She arranged our flights, transferred us to the start of the tramp, booked DOC hut, picked us up after the tramp and took us to great accommodation. Her van was back again to pick us up and off to meet flights away home again. She was... More

We did a package with GoGreat Barrier Island. It was actually 3 days on the island. What a wonderful package. Highlight of the island was our day tour with Steve on his trike. We started at 9:30 AM with Steve taking us all over the island. Had several stops and a walk along the way. Steve's knowledge of the area... More

Our interest in Great Barrier Island was to experience the outdoor activities, mainly tramping, but wished to have an overview of the Island first. Our tour with Steve in a group of 19, was the perfect way to be given first hand information on history, flora and fauna, anecdotes of Island life and general information. We were so impressed with... More
