Tour: Around Central Otago Private Tour for Douglas Guthrie, Queenstown, New Zealand
Date: May 13/18

A terrific introduction to Queenstown and the surrounding area! In 2 days with Claudie, we explored Lord of the Ring filming sites, beautiful parks, beautiful lakes, Glenorchy, wonderful coffee shops and the most wonderful winery in Alexandra. Claudie is clearly an expert in all things Queenstown and New Zealand and is so personable that we immediately felt like long lost friends. She was very flexible with our interests and even helped us with places to see on the remainder of our trip. We'll be back.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much �� what a lovely review and what a great 2 days we had together . We are now enjoying the Como Riesling. Save trip around middle earth. All the best . Claudie

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.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Charles Thank you for the rating all the best�� Claudie

We were to meet Claudie at 9:00 AM. For an unknown reason, we were not able to get off the ship until about 10:00. Claudia was still waiting. After meeting up with her, she adjusted the tour so that we were still able to do most of the tour and still make it back to the ship on time. The tour included the Larnach Castle. Although our late start created some problems we were still able to avoid some of the crowds. She was flexible and allowed us to visit the Cadbury Chocolate store and a yarn shop.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am please to hear that you enjoy the day in Dunedin and had a great day in Fiordland. All the best Claudie

Claudie was a delightful connection to our "Heimat," Switzerland. She's highly professional and most accommodating to last-minute requests. Dunedin is a lovely area - we only wish we had had more time to explore. Thanks, Claudie, for the viewing tip - we caught a good look of the albatross nesting area on our departure. Wow!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Merci beaucoup, je vous souhaite un tres bon voyage. Claudie

Claudie picked our family of 7 up at the ship as arranged, and from the start we all loved her personality and easy-going manner. She was extremely knowledgeable about New Zealand and we spent a wonderful day sightseeing and enjoying her commentary. She took us to a great spot for lunch as well . . . and her driving was excellent!! She was an absolute delight and we would recommend selecting her as your guide without ANY reservations -- book her now!!!

We just completed our tour of Dunedin with Claudie, and could not be more pleased. The itinerary was tremendous, and the information Claudie provided was insightful and filled with the nuances that only a local can bring. She was enjoyable to chat with, and had great ideas -- ranging from a terrific local pub for lunch to an out-of-the-way beach where we had some amazing encounters with sea lions. It was a great experience and a good value. Well done!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Anne and family. It was a great day!! Bon voyage. All the best. Claudie

We asked to see a specific site. When it was apparent that it could not be located, she continued to look even though I told her to forget it and to stop looking. She continued to look making my traveling companions quite upset. She was quite personable and informative.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your feedback, it's very helpful. I'm sorry if anyone was upset on the tour - that certainly was not my intention. I'm glad you found the tour informative and hope the rest of your cruise is enjoyable.

TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: We are sure that Claudie will learn from this experience and improve her skills.

Tour: Scenic South Island, Christchurch, New Zealand
Date: Nov 1/14

Claudie was my private guide for two weeks. We started in Christ Church circumnavigating the South Island and ending in Dunedin. We stayed at different B&Bs each night and covered 3000 miles. We dined with hosts/hostesses, met locals and discussed a variety of subjects. Claudie's sense of humor made all things possible and her knowledge of her adopted country gave her a detachment necessary to tell a clear story. She drove, showed, and told. And I thoroughly enjoyed. Rebecca Shrigley Hall, Taos, NM, USA

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Rebecca. I had a lovely time too.
