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!
