Very Personal Tour

Have a really great time with Cheeky Kiwi. It's a really personal tour because they we are in a small group of people. When I had this tour, we're just three people including Dan the tour guide so Dan really accommodating our need and our plan to explore mount cook with ample time to explore mt.cook. He's really helpful, fun and funny and also give a lot of infotmations about the place a long the roads.I'm enjoying the direct pick up service from the accomodation too because the bigger tour seems don't really have this service.

perfect day

it was the best tour i ve ever had. my parents loved this tour very much. we dropped by lots and lots of viewpoints till returned to Queenstown. wasn't feel boring at all especially the guy Dan was the perfect guy, I guess he is one of the funniest tour guide. he gave us a lot of information and also something little personal information which was about the best chicken pie in the world. it turned out to be true really really delicious. what if i spoke English better i could give you more details... unfortunately... the point is this is the best! there is no need to say more

Wonderful!

We were only 6 in a mini bus on that day and it was what I call a great team! Driving through the South Island (Queenstown to Mt Cook) was amazing, I still can’t believe how beautiful it was. Unfortunately due to weather conditions we were not able to see the main attraction of that tour or even trek.. Mt Cook. I was so upset/mad/disappointed... but Dan our driver/guide was above and beyond my expectations, he literally made my day even though I was a bit upset about Mt Cook being shy behind the clouds! What a positive guide, he managed to show us another lake instead, said yes to stop when we wanted to take picture of something on the road. That guy is amazing and I will not forget that. In the end it was a great day after all!!
