Dermot was an absolutely fantastic guide! His knowledge about Akaroa and the surrounding area was a terrific enhancement to what is already a beautiful area and he was incredibly flexible in accommodating what can be a quite unwieldy group of 8. It is obvious that Dermot is passionate about his hometown area and it shone through in a way that made our time with him one of the most memorable of our trip. He was also great with the camera, helping us to preserve those cherished memories. Thank you again!

Dermot was flexible on the itinerary which allowed time to see Christchurch. We had been there thee decades earlier long before the fatal earthquakes. He also added the personal touch to those lives lost rather than quoting statistics. I work with earthquakes every year and he was able to weave that aspect into his tour of a city rising from the ashes.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure showing you both around Christchurch and Banks Peninsula.....many thanks for taking the time to write a review !
