Christchurch based. My tours offer personalised small group, day tours to Mount Cook,Akaroa, Farm Visits, wineries, Arthurs Pass, Kaikoura, and Hanmer Springs.I offer homestay in my home with food grown in my organic garden. Cruise ship tours from Akaroa are also available. This is my 17th year guiding and I speak English and Japanese. My modern air condition vehicle seats 9 guests but I can hire and drive larger buses if needed. Happy to help in any way to create a memorable tour in our beautiful island.
