CanNZ Day Tours Christchruch and South Island.

I offer day tours starting from Christchurch but do sometimes take guests through to Queenstown and Milford. I have a modern 7 seater Toyota Hi Ace but can charter larger vehicles if you wish. I provide a range of day tours such as Tranz Alpine Train and hiking in Arthurs Pass National Park, Aoraki Mt Cook , Farm Tour, Horseriding Tour,Kaikoura Whalewatch or Dolphin Swim, Waipara Winery Tour, Akaroa Nature tour, Hanmer Springs Tour, Christchurch City Sights, Garden Tours, Organic Garden Cooking Tour, Christchurch Dinner Night Tour,Transfers to Tekapo, . I prefer to guide from my home in Christchurch however if clients wish to go on tours around the South Island I am able to oblige.
I have an organic garden and glasshouse and love growing vegetables and herbs and use these for making my picnic lunches enjoyed in scenic locations. This also allows us to change our schedule if the weather isn’t so kind to us. I also offer homestay in our home if guests wish to have a more genuine Kiwi experience. My home is 5 minutes from the airport and 7 minutes from the Cathedral so I am very conveniently located in the suburb of Papanui. All of my tours can be order made so if you wish to do more hiking , photography, golf or tennis absolutely no problem.
Please check out my Trip Advisor Reviews for CanNZ Tours Christchurch.

Not lucky enough to be born in New Zealand however found the place when I came here on an Agricultural exchange in 1974…and after graduating from Agricultural College in Scotland I returned in 1977.
After farming for a short while I became involved in hotel management in Queenstown and Auckland before buying and operating my own bakery coffee shop in Christchurch for 5 years.
Upon selling that I went to live in Japan for 5 years to learn the language with my young family and now operate my own inbound travel company which was catering largely for the Japanese market. Since our earthquake in Feb 2011 I have put my tours up in English and now host International Guests as well as Japanese.
However it is my pleasure to guide and host people of all nationalities around the central South Island and Christchurch in particular.

Please mail me with your inquiries and I shall be delighted to do my utmost to give you a memorable stay in the South Island.

  • I very much enjoyed this tour which showed me both the wonderful gardens and beautiful sites of Christchurch, as well as the heartbreaking devastation suffered by this great city in the earthquake. Wish we had been able to spend more time in Christchurch since it has such a lot going for it, including the spirit of the people. 5

  • We took Craig's Mt Cook / Aoraki day trip tour in January 2013. We were going to be in Christchurch for 2 nights before leaving New Zealand, and really wanted to use the opportunity to see Mt. Cook. I cannot say enough good things about our tour with Craig - it was absolutely the highlight of our New Zealand trip. Of course, Mt. Cook and the Southern Alps are absolutely stunning, but one thing we didn't expect was to enjoy the journey there and back so much (all thanks to Craig)! Craig is so knowledgeable about the entire Canterbury region - we learned a ton about the area's history and nuances. He is very relaxed, friendly, and fun. Along our way, we stopped at different sites, took photos, and ate delicious food (Craig is a farmer and an amazing cook). If you're looking for a tour guide, whether for a small group like ours or a larger group, I very highly recommend contacting Craig. He is flexible, knowledgeable, accommodating, and all all-around great guy! 5
