Client Reviews

5 star review  I cannot recommend Mike enough, he is the guide/driver to have! I was just coming off touring Australia via camper van for two and a half months and was running out of funds to stick around, but I wanted really badly to jump over to NZ while I was so near. The other problem I faced was the lack of motivation to put in the time and effort to plan a trip with what I had left and get the best experience I could. I was searching the web when I came across his other site miketheguide. I wasn't sure what to expect or if I could afford a private guide, but I thought if nothing else he might be able to direct me in the right direction as to where to start. Next thing I knew I was booking a full guided tour of the north island and had tours planned for the south island. Mike is fun, exciting, and very accommodating to your interests. He is knowledgeable in the landscape/scenes of NZ, LOTR/The Hobbit, beer/food, cars, and I am sure whatever else might be up your alley. Do yourself a favour and get in touch with Mike, whether it is for your entire trip or a day trip, you will not regret it!!
