Craig picked us up at our hotel and from start to finish he customized our tour to meet our wishes. We drove to Arthur's Pass where we were served a delightful picnic with views of the mountains. Along the way ther and back, he answered a thousand questions about flora, fauna, history, geology, you name it. After our return to Christchurch, he gave us a quick tour of the CBD, including the heartbreaking Christchurch Cathedral damaged during the earthquake. Craig goes out of his way to make your tour something you will always remember. You can't go wrong!

We had an absolutely amazing day with Craig while visiting on a cruise stop. Craig had contacted us a number of times prior to our arrival to help us plan a very full day. He picked us up from the dock and we headed to Arthur's Pass National Park. We stopped along the way along a meadow to had Craigs homemade scones, jam and tea. We toured the National Park which was breathtaking! Craig made us a picnic lunch that was to die for!! Everything homemade. He even fresh cooked asparagus from his garden. The men in our group are wood workers. On the way back through the valley he surprised us and arranged for a tour of a saw mill! We had a 10 hour tour planned and Craig had us back to the ship right on time!

Thanks so much for your generous words. That was a fabulous day with you all and glad that you enjoyed the picnic lunch as well. Good on the lads at the Sawmill for giving you such a great tiki tour of the mill too. Hope you all have some great memories of your trip to Canterbury. Appreciate you keeping me in a job I love. All the best to you for 2020.

We decided to take the train to Greymouth and collect our hire car there for a drive down the Wild West coast to Wanaka, where we had an apartment for a week. The train goes through some spectacular country and we could both enjoy all of it from the wide windows. It only takes four hours but it was a terrific way to travel. The road doesn’t quite follow the track so we got unique views that we wouldn’t have by driving. The cafe car was great - really good coffee and fresh delicious food. Our fellow passengers even had beer and wine. The stop at Arthur’s Pass is great. And the on board commentary is really interesting. This is a must do in our book. Also hiring. Car in Greymouth is easy as all the car hire places are in the train station and we had time to head north to Pancake Rocks - have a late lunch and a walk before driving back to Greymouth and having a look around.

We are currently on our first trip to New Zealand celebrating our 40th anniversary. Upon high recommendations from friends, we booked Craig for the day. He met us in Akaroa where our ship was docked. What a delightful man! He is very knowledgable about New Zealand and the area we were touring. We had a wonderful picnic lunch, overlooking stunning scenery,which included Craig's homemade bread & greens from his garden. Truly a day in Akaroa, Pigeon Bay, & Christchurch that we will never forget largely due to the great care & hospitality of Craig Rome!

Good on you for following up on your predecessors and giving me an amazing visit to Craigforth and learning so much more about the early history of Banks Peninsula and Pigeon Bay. The weather certainly does help and what fantastic vista s we could enjoy. Thank you so much for taking the trouble to write such a generous review. What a great day for me too.

Big thanks to my tour guide Craig! :) He guided us through our day trip to Aoraki Mt. Cook and showed us around all the amazing photo spots. We also had a lovely picnic at a beautiful location with Craig’s handmade meal which tasted amazing ;) Definitely one of the most beautiful views I’ve seen in my entire life! This tour made my trip to Christchurch a special one for sure!!

Good on you for putting up such a kind review on my tour. That was just an incredible day and when I can combine the asparagus from my garden and the fresh salmon from Mt Cook and enjoy it beside those fantastic aqua marine blue colour of Pukaki..Its as good as it gets. Usually the wind can be so strong and yet 15 kms away from the strong winds of Lake Tasman Pukaki was like a mill pond..
