Chris L.

Hastings, Hawke's Bay, New Zealand

Hi - my name is Chris; I would love to take you on a tour around Napier & Hawke's Bay in our modern luxury European vehicles.

I have had a long passion for travel & the tourism industry. I've traveled extensively during my 20's in Australia, Asia, North America and Europe where I tour guided on the canal boats in France. In 2002 I meet my wife, who is from Hawke's Bay and in 2003 we moved there from Auckland to start a family and immerse ourselves into the region we now call home.

I want to share the wonderful Hawke's Bay experience with you and your friends. It really is a most beautiful and diverse place!

My aim is to provide a luxury tour experience along with customised tour & transfer options that you'll want to share with your family and friends.

Our luxury European vehicles are air conditioned for superior comfort and complementary chilled water is provided.

I can also cater for larger groups by request so please do not hesitate to contact me if I can help.

Below you'll find one of the latest reviews I've received from a happy customer. . . .

A Recent Review of this guide

Chris is a fantastic guide. He maximized our time in Napier with scenic drives stopping for great photos, wine and cheese tastings, and all the highlights of Napier city. We also had time for a little shopping. He is extremely knowledgeable, friendly and I highly recommend Chris. You won't regret it.
