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 was an excellent tour guide. His Mercedes van had great air conditioning and very comfortable for our group. He did a good job of not taking us to tour bus type places. He knows the area very well and made the trip interesting and fun for all of us. I highly recommend Tim and will certainly use him again.
