I'm determined to provide the very best of experiences. . . . . the motto. . . "every moment a memory" holds true for all my tours.
I specialise in very private, bespoke tours. My first concern is establishing my client's needs then working with them to make those memories happen. Christchurch, in fact all the South Island is such a beautiful place. I am reminded almost daily by my guests; just how lucky I am to live here.
Christchurch is nearly thought a NZ$50 billion dollar rebuild following two major earthquakes in 2010/2011. Well underway, this rebuild will see Christchurch become one of the most modern and safest cities in the world. Renowned for its gardens and very English architecture, our parks and gardens are some of the most beautiful in the world. Hagley Park, 10km around the outside, nestled in the heart of the city, just has to be seen to be believed.
The South Island features a huge dairy farming infrastructure, horticulture, enormous mountain ranges with snow capped peaks and some of the most beautiful pristine fresh water lakes in the world. Driving in the South can be challenging, we drive on the left, and the winding mountain roads and sometimes severe winter conditions all make the area interesting to drive in. Sensible travellers hire me to drive them.
You will soon be in love with Christchurch and the South.
A family man with two grown children, married to my wife Elizabeth for forty one years; prior to becoming a professional driver/guide I worked in retail management and then in our Ambulance Service as a Paramedic…progressing to Clinical Educator. I continue to be involved in the Order of St John to this day but not as a professional paramedic, now I enjoy a more social association.
People, their families and their interests are an endless fascination to me.
A Recent Review of this guide
Brent was outstanding. He really gave us a feel for his country. I would request him again for another tour. If you want a 5 star tour ask for Brent
