Client Reviews

5 star review  We used Mike as a personal guide for our 3 week vacation to NZ this past December/January. We were a family of 6 and Mike fit right in! It was fantastic to have him do the driving (especially since they drive on the "wrong" side of the road down there) and he knew of great, off the beaten path, places to stop and eat and sight see. We were a little late in the planning of our vacation and with NZ being such a popular destination Mike saved the day and planned an absolutely fantastic trip that met all of our adventure requirements. Traveling with 4 kids (ages 16-22) was worry and stress free thanks to Mike!

Before and after! I drove through some serious roadworks around #Kaikoura, and my #van was a mess when I finally hit a chance to wash it. I have a #duraseal ceramic coating on my paint and glass (applied by Chris at @finaltouchwgtn), and I love how easy it is to get even the stickiest filth off my #viano #minivan. . . . . . #mercedesbenz #v350 #w639 #chauffeur #tourguide driver #vip #luxury #vanlife ...

The #Gallipoli - The Scale of our War exhibition is in its last year at Te Papa #museum in #wellington. It’s a very powerful, informative and moving exhibition and if you have a chance to see it, you absolutely should. These figures are made at 2.5x scale by @wetaworkshop and are incredibly realistic. ...

It’s the calm before the storm! A cruise ship arrives here within the hour. Akaroa is beautiful, and proof that you can’t visit New Zealand just once - most people wouldn’t come here on their first trip. #earthpixnz ...

#MilfordSound on #NewZealand really is one of the wonders of the world. It’s a spectacular flight in or out, but the road is also magnificent. I recommend flying one way and driving the other. Of course, you want us driving for you, so you can enjoy the view! ...
