We stayed at Otahuna lodge and from there we had a great guide for the day in Akaroa. We took the boat to see wildlife in the bay. We saw Dolphins, seals, penguins and beautiful scenery. Our guide also took us to a wonderful beach home for lunch. The owner was kind and welcoming. We enjoyed our day very much.... More

I have found from my travels that many services don't live up to the promise of their marketing material. In the case of the Canterbury Guiding Company, they more than lived up to their promise. We visited Christchurch as a group of 12 in July, with David greeting us on arrival and guiding us on different adventures each day during... More

Everyone in my family enjoyed our time with David and he was very personable and related well to all ages. I'd recommend him highly and when/if we visit the area again, I'll... More

The Canterbury Guiding Co. (and David in particular) provided the best touring experience I have ever had, which is saying something as I've been fortunate enough to travel six continents thus far in my life. And the best part about it was that we didn't really even feel like we were on a tour...it felt more like a local friend... More

Full day excursion from Christchurch. Beautiful drive through the Canterbury Plains and up the Rakaia River to a remote sheep station. We took a helicopter ride to get a spectacular view of the braided river and surrounding countryside. We saw glaciers up close and then landed in a great spot for a delicious lunch. We then searched the surrounding terrain... More
