Louise was very friendly, informed and professional. She went out of her way to help my wife locate a facility in Rotorua that my wife visited 50 years ago. Unfortunately it no longer exits, but we won't blame Louise for this!! Rotorua was a three hour drive in each direction from our hotel and Louise drove very well even in some heavy rain.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Larry. I had a great day out with you all. Lots of fun trying to discover something that was impossible. Hope the rest of your travels were great too.

Louise was simply marvelous, was thoroughly enjoyed our day with her. She was a consummate professional, very knowledgeable and a pleasure to travel with. We now consider her as the only guide in the NZ area for us; part of our travel family. Fred and Shirley R
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Fred and Shirley. You were both so enthusiastic about everything and to fulfill your Hobbiton dreams was really extra special. Hope you are enjoying your cruise and definitely look forward to showing you round New Zealand again.

Louise was just perfect! Amazing! She was waiting at our hotel where my family of 5 was staying & had a beautiful and roomy van that accommodated all 5 adults. She had everything set up beautifully! Louise took us to the most delicious breakfast stop and a REALLY great museum/shop. She has perfect timing witch got us to our AMAZING tours of Hobbiton (evening dinner tour) and the Glow Worm caves. She even brought Snacks for our drive! LOVED HER and highly highly recommend her to all!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much. It was an awesome day spent with a wonderful family. I'm very happy you enjoyed everything and I hope the rest of your holiday in New Zealand was great. I hope we meet again some day.

Louise did a fantastic job showing me the fundamentals of Auckland Area, accommodating my travel requirements and bring me to the Hobbiton Movie Set and Rotorua. Amazing New Zealand .. great experience.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Gabriel. It was certainly a whirlwind and we managed a lot in the time. I really enjoyed showing you some lovely places.

Louise gave us a wonderful tour of the Waitomo Caves. Going to and from the caves, Louise provided a real New Zealand experience, explaining the culture and history of New Zealand, a short hike into the Bush (i.e. forest), breakfast and lunch at a local cafe/restaurant, Hamilton gardens, and Tip Top ice cream. Louise tailored the tour to our interests and was extremely flexible in doing so. We thoroughly enjoyed our day with Louise and would highly recemmend her to all our friends and fellow travelers.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jeffrey. The best decision we all made was to leave early .and it was great we could do everything we planned. Thanks for being awesome travellers.

Louise was great! Our Hobbiton tour was our kids favorite! We enjoyed our ride with Louise from Auckland to Hobbiton, learned a lot about the life in Zealand. On the way back Louise discovered Tip Top ice-cream for us; we're already missing it! My kids still rave about the cake Louise has baked for us. We wish we had more time in Auckland!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Lori. Hobbiton is definitely a magical place and taking visitors there is always a thrill. I love the trip there and back as well. Makes for a big day out.

Louise Y. was a fabulous guide--we recommend her unconditionally. She narrated two full days of tours with her encyclopedic knowledge yet was as welcoming as can be, even providing us with a picnic lunch in a lovely park in Auckland. We have complimented her personally but please her know she deserved a 10 star rating. Eleanor and Pablo Siegal

We had an AMAZING day with Louise - not only was she impressive in her knowledge of New Zealand and its history, but she is a lovely person to spend time with. We had a long, wonderful day with her - we can't recommend her highly enough, and look forward to bringing our family down to do it all over again. The best tour we've ever had - she is a lovely, lovely person, and we enjoyed ourselves thoroughly! Thank you for a wonderful experience!
