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.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Stephen, Had a great day hosting you, enjoy the rest of your trip. Best Wished Chris

Chris was awesome and funny. He had great stories and took us to wineries with great food and wines. He also hit the highlight locations for just the right amount of time so we optimized our time in port. We traveled with a group of 8 and everybody was extremely happy with the tour. We'd definitely use his service again and would like to spend multiple days with him showing us even more. He was also able to avoid the crowds and traffic which is extremely important to our group. Great job Chris.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Greg, Had a great day with you all. Enjoy the rest of your trip. Chris

Chris was an awesome host. Sprinter van was ultimate in comfort! Chris was friendly, entertaining, and knowledgeable about local history and culture. Chris focused on taking you places where the cruise ship crowds don't go! Chris structured the day to meet you needs and left you feeling fulfilled during a short journey. Ask for Chris and you will not be disappointed.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Don, Had a great day with you all today and was a pleasure to show you around. Thank you for your feedback. Enjoy the rest of your trip. Best Wishes Chris

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.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Chris, it was my pleasure to host you for the day. Regards Chris

Chris did a great job showing us Napier. He adjusted the ship's arrival to make our day enjoyable. Poor weather didn't deter great views at Te Mata. We loved visiting Birdwoods restaurant/gift shop for a coffee -- so quaint & lovely. Next enjoyed a wine tasting at Craggy Range, and a quick stop at The Mission winery. Finished with photos at National Tobacco Company Bldg. Enjoyed some history along way in beautiful, clean car with water and mints for all. Nice presentation - wish we had more time!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Laurie, Glad you all had a great time. It was my pleasure to host you. Enjoy the rest of your trip. Kind Regards Chris

We had a wonderful day with Chris. It started with the stunning views from Te Mata peak. Breathtaking! From there we started our winery tours. The first was at Craggy Range and the 2nd tasting was at Trinity Hill with a fantastic cheese board. Chris is very knowledgable and squeezed as much scenery as possible in our tour. Gorgeous crountryside and ending with a tour of the art deco in Napier. He even stopped and helped us purchase a lottery ticket...no winner. Fantastic day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Jim, I loved showing you all Napier & Hawke's Bay. Shame the lotto ticket wasn't a winner :( Regards Chris
