Claudie F.

Dunedin, Otago, New Zealand

My name is Claudie, I am originally from Switzerland, I have been a professional tour guide based in Dunedin for the past 20 years.

I also have a base in Central Otago where I guide tours in Queenstown, Wanaka and the Alexandra/Clyde area.
I have conducted tours for single people (including the disabled) and groups as large as 30, all over New-Zealand and the Pacific Islands.
I never tire of the unique scenery, trees, plants and wildlife of this diverse and beautiful country.
I have a strong appreciation and knowledge of the local history and Maori culture in many of the areas of the country and also have established links with many local experts.
My passion is introducing the very best of what our country has to offer and our tours can be focused on, for example, food, wine or outdoor pursuits as required.
I look forward to helping you discover the 'real' New-Zealand.

A Recent Review of this guide

Claudie did a nice job adjusting our tour since we we very a hour late getting off the boat. We did not get to do as much walking as we planned but she was able to include all the planned sites. She was knowledgeable and had nice presentations. I would recommend hers as a tour guide.
