About

I have been involved in Tourism in New Zealand since August 1992. I am a past member of the Canterbury Tourism Council where I represented the local adventure tourism industry operators. I'm extremely passionate and caring about what I do in life, and together with awesome fellow Kiwi staff, promise to give you the very best vacation experience possible while you explore our beautiful land, Aotearoa — New Zealand.

On a personal note, I am a past competitor in our famous "Coast to Coast" Endurance Race - World Championship event and have competed in numerous marathons and multi-sport races. I absolutely love our world-famous great outdoors, our majestic mountains, beautiful lakes and rivers, fiords, glaciers, ancient rain forests, golden sandy beaches, our unique Maori Heritage and much more. I always feel privileged to be able to share New Zealand’s beauty and special uniqueness and look forward to showing it all to our visitors.

Geoff's Travel Expertise

I enjoy taking visitors where the locals go — off the beaten track. Besides the many beautiful National parks and World Heritage sites, I will take you through a world-famous traditional Kiwi sheep farm and introduce you to a unique Maori culture with the local Mitai family (or, tribe) on the shores of beautiful Lake Rotorua.

Whether you want a quiet retreat in New Zealand or prefer thrilling adventure activities, I've got you covered.

Geoff's best travel experience

In 2012, I met a Turkish tour guide named Tolun in New Zealand. The following year, my wife, Libby and I flew to Turkey to explore its rich history and culture, and visited Tolun in his home village of Uchisar in the stunningly beautiful Cappadocia. Tolun runs an amazing lodge in Uchisar and it was absolutely delightful to spend a few days amidst the gorgeous landscape of limestone mountains.

We also absolutely loved Istanbul. It's long fascinating history of Ottoman and Roman Empires, the Byzantine era and Arab invasions is very fascinating. We enjoyed interacting with its warm friendly people. Since it is such a huge city, there is always so much to discover and experience on each visit. The Galatar tower is stunning, the Grand Bazaar is spectacular, and the Hagia Sophia Mosque is truly breath-taking.

Secondly, I understand the anxiety of planning a trip to a strange country, so I provide my personal mobile number to all our clients so that they can reach me 24/7 during their stay.

Finally, I am a stickler for our company's motto: We do no make promises we cannot keep! I will ensure that your experience with us in New Zealand exceeds your expectations and that you are not disappointed.
