Dermot was just purely amazing. My husband and I spent our first year anniversary in New Zealand and had requested for Dermot to be our guide in Christchurch for 3 days. Truly unforgettable experience. It was a breeze liaising with him. He was also extremely patient and went put of his way to help check out the places we wanted to go to before hand to ensure that it was a smooth journey for us. He was also very informative, we truly did learn a lot from him. Would highly recommend him!!

Dermot did a great job. He gave us a complete tour with a great lunch by the river in Christchurch. He is very knowledgeable and personable. I recommend him and would call on him again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks David. I am happy you enjoyed the Boatshed Cafe and your time in Canterbury. Safe travels ! Regards, Dermot

Dermot was very knowledgeable about this area and gave us photo opportunities along the drive - which is what we requested. We were limited in time and he took that in to consideration and really was able to show us a lot in a short period of time. One of our best tour guides and we recommend him very highly. We were 6 in number and in a very comfortable van with lots of room. Thank you Demott. Joan
