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 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
