Favourite GURU Story ||

I recently took a lovely couple from Singapore on a private guided ten-day tour of the South Island. They loved seeing the spectacular and beautiful landscapes including vast mountain ranges, rugged coastlines, deep fiords and lush rainforest. I showed them the main highlights including Christchurch, Wanaka, Queenstown etc. and we visited the best and most scenic locations for photo opportunities such as Arthur's Pass, West Coast, Franz Josef Glacier, Fiordland National Park, Lake Tekapo etc. They really enjoyed the local activities I personally arranged for them like the helicopter flight over Franz Josef Glacier, scenic flight to Te Anau and Milford Sound cruise and skydive over Queenstown. But don't just take my word for it, here's what they had to to say: 

"We did a tour of the South Island with Aroha Tours in Dec 2017. Despite approaching the peak tourism period, Veronika managed to arrange everything, acceded and customized the tour package to the best of our requirements. Our guide for the trip was Craig Wrightson. Craig is a highly meticulous and personable guide! He sought to ensure that our accommodation and activities were ready by always calling ahead. As someone who clearly loves his country, he had been a wonderful host whom passionately introduced us to his beautiful native island over the course of 10-ish memorably fun days. Under the mercy and unpredictability of New Zealand's weather conditions, he exhibited great negotiation skills and flexibility in reshuffling our activities amidst the stress of long haul cross-country drives; whilst ensuring that safety came first at all times.The experience that we had was exhilarating and we couldn't thank Craig more for being a part of our journey, sharing insights to New Zealand's amazing floral & fauna, captivating landscapes, Maui cultures and traditions. Craig had also been accommodating, patient and thoughtful throughout, all in all he had provided an excellent service beyond our expectations. We anticipated a tour guide at the beginning, but we gained a friend instead at the end of our trip. A big thank you to Veronika and Craig for one of our best holidays ever!"
