Hi. I work sometimes now with this woman Sheryl who has a large travel company.  ... anyway she wants to put a trip together for next year.  I told her how great you are.  She usually gets like 10 people but she was happy to know that you are willing to take only four like me.    I told her she could follow my itinerary but she might want to do the glow worm cave and Rotarua .  I will try to add people to that trip too and come again. Talk to u soon.

"I know you communicated directly with Dolores, but I want to send my own message.  I don’t use a cell phone or any of the apps.  I use speech on my computer, so emails are the only way I converse with people.

Everything went according to plan and we completely enjoyed visiting your wonderful country.  Your services were great and we have no complaints of any kind.  When we have a minute, we’ll post something on your site, and feel free to use us for references.

Please send me your snail mail address.  We want to send you a little momentum of our visit."

Nous venons de passer 1 mois en Nouvelle Zelande dont 8 jours en compagnie de Chris.

Chris était notre chauffeur pendant tout notre périple dans l’île du sud. Cette semaine fut merveilleuse. Les paysage découverts étaient époustouflants et nous avons énormément appris quant à la vie, l’économie, l’histoire… de ce pays grâce à Chris. Toujours enjoué et disponible il n’a su que faire pour nous être agréable et répondre à chacune de nos demandes. Il a de plus supporté avec humour l’indiscipline du groupe de 8 français que nous formions ! 

Nous ne pouvons que vous recommander ses services car en plus de tout cela il conduit de façon très douce et en toute sécurité, ce qui est toujours très appréciable pour les passagers.

Bon séjour dans ce si beau pays !

Translation:

We have just spent 1 month in New Zealand, 8 days of which were spent with Chris.

 Chris was our chauffeur/driver (you pick !) during the whole of our South Island trip. This week was marvelous/fantastic/wonderful (you pick !)! The scenery we discovered was breathtaking and we learnt so much about the life, economy, and history of this country, thanks to Chris. Always cheerful and available, he couldn’t do enough for us, responding to every one of our requests. He put up with this unruly French group of 8, what’s more with humor!

 We can only recommend his services as, in addition to all of this, he drives very smoothly and safely which is always appreciated by his passengers.

 Have a wonderful stay in this beautiful country!

"We came across “Chauffeur New Zealand” in the internet when we were planning our first trip to New Zealand earlier this year.  Via e-mails, Robin Adams, owner of the company immediately worked out a fantastic detail itinerary for our 4 days in the South Island.  He was fantastic from the time he picked us up at the airport to the time he dropped us off at the end of the 4 days tour.  The itinerary packs a lot in and the views are absolutely stunning everywhere we went.  Robin was with us the entire tour and he was a superb tour guide sharing his knowledge of his country with us.  I would definitely recommend “Chauffeur New Zealand” to anybody who is interested in a private tour, and if we go to New Zealand again which is quite possible, we will definitely have Robin again.  There were 5 of us from the United States, and at the end of our tour, Robin became our friend."

"I have to tell you how much we enjoyed our extended stay in Queenstown, based on your recommendation. I don't even know how many times we said to each other, "Wow, I'm glad Robin talked us into coming here instead of sticking around Te Anau!" Not that Te Anau wasn't also gorgeous, but you were right, there was so much more to do and see (and good places to eat) in Queenstown. On the way home we all agreed it was actually our favorite stop of the whole trip. So again, thanks for steering us right on that one! Thank you again for all your help, and perhaps we'll see on our next trip to New Zealand!Touring with Chauffeur New Zealand was one of the highlights of our trip through the country. Our guide Robin was indispensably helpful, assisting us in designing a personalized and flexible itinerary that truly suited our interests. As a guide, he was courteous, warm, and always professional, providing us with invaluable local information and insight. I would highly recommend Chauffeur New Zealand for anyone seeking a friendly alternative to large, impersonal tour groups."

" We were glad that we engaged Chauffeur New Zealand for a 2 week trip for our group of eight to the South Island.  Robin Adams, our driver guide is an extremely responsible and disciplined driver and we all felt very safe in his hands.  Robin is passionate about his country and he knows the South Island at his finger tips.  Most importantly, he goes out his way to make things happen for us. We had the option to stay or move to another destination as and when we like.  This is our first experience with freedom tours and we thoroughly enjoyed the flexibility.  We were assured of accommodation all the way with the help of Robin. Besides, Chauffeur New Zealand used quality and comfortable vehicle for our trip. Thank you Chauffeur New Zealand for making this an experience of a life time for us.  We would definitely recommend Chauffeur New Zealand to our friends. Cheers,"

"We had a spectacular  trip with you chauffering us all over the South Islands. We will always cherish our trip to the New Zealand - South Island. New Zealand is one of the most beautiful places that we have seen and it seemed more welcoming due to your warm and friendly nature. I would definitly recomend "Chauffeur New Zealand "  to all my freinds who are planning on visiting NZ. Thanks for your guidance in customising and planning our tour and the invaluable insight you gave us during the trip. "

My husband and I very much enjoyed our two-week adventure on New Zealand’s south island. The trip was made all the more enjoyable because we had our private driver, Chris Toms of Chauffeur New Zealand. We didn’t have to stress about the windy narrow roads, one-lane bridges, or having a glass of wine at the numerous cellar doors. We were able to make stops en route to our destinations at various places of interest including falls, bridges, beaches and many wineries, many of which we wouldn’t have been aware of without Chris’ breadth of knowledge of the island. 

 Prior to our trip I found it very easy to communicate with Chris via email–all questions and worries were promptly responded to. A few calls on Facetime helped insure that we would have good chemistry together. And indeed we did!

 The SUV offered plenty of room and Chris was consistently courteous, conscientious, considerate and always on time. We would highly recommend Chris Toms to any visitor to New Zealand who would prefer to sit in the car and enjoy the scenery and the ride stress-free.
