A GREAT DAY!
Dec 2019
This was a great day! Carolyn and Murray picked us up at our hotel and drove us throughout Christchurch as they filled us in on the history of Christchurch, the Moaris, and many works of art. We asked many questions and they always had an answer. Rather than a canned tour, they were able to fit the trip to our individual interests, as well. Partway through the tour they pulled out hot coffee, tea, and homemade biscuits, (Carolyn is sending me the recipe for those delicious treats.) Carolyn and Murray are such fun and full of interesting information. We had many opportunities to get out of the combi. Much much better than a normal bus tour.

A lovely sunny Saturday and a great bunch of friends and we had a marvellous few hours with Caroline. The knowledge she has about Christchurch was good. Definitely a worthwhile trip in her kombi and the lunch she supplied was yummy.

The Christchurch personalised tour you must do!!
Apr 2019 • Family
Together with friends from South Africa and all our children we were educated and entertained by the most fabulous Caroline and her Kombi!
We learnt so much on our tour - the meaning behind aspects of the Art Centre redevelopment, the Maori influence in the rebuild of Christchurch, the beauty in art around the city and relevance of it. Among other things we also spent some time at the beautiful new library and visited the Memorial Wall. Caroline has an infectious personality and her warmth and friendliness makes this tour so enjoyable and a must for anyone wanting to learn more about Christchurch.
I HIGHLY recommend!!

Best Tour ever
May 2019 • Couples
Awesome! Enjoyable tour with Caroline and Murray. Helped it was a gorgeous Christchurch Day but they both made it an informative, interesting tour sharing stories about their life in this great city. Definitely recommended if you want a smaller group tour away from crowds. The Anzac biscuits and the tea break were a great treat!

Introduction to Christchurch and New Zealand
Mar 2019 • Friends
On a beautiful sunny day, four of us who had just arrived in NZ were off early in the kombi with Caroline and her husband Murray. What a fabulous day this was - a mid-morning stop at the main tourist information office where Caroline offered us her delicious homemade ANZAC cookies, then self-pay outdoor lunch at the top of Port Hills/Cashmere at the Sign of the Kiwi Restaurant - all the while learning about Christchurch, the country, their personal stories and so much more. Totally delightful!! The city was one week from a deadly mass shooting in two mosques, so while we were all excited in our new environs, there were somber remembrances too as we passed flower memorials and encountered blocked streets. This tour is such a fun and personal way to get to know a bit about this wonderful city and great country.

Mar 2019 • Family
We were only in Christchurch for an afternoon and evening so we were searching for a way to connect and get to know the area in a very short amount of time. The hotel clerk recommended Caroline's Kombi tours and we are so pleased that she did. Caroline and her husband Murray have extensive knowledge about the city and they bring it to life in a warm and personal manner. In the short amount of time that we spent exploring with them, we got to know Christchurch in much more detail than many places where we have spent much longer periods of time. Their love for the area is apparent and, by seeing it through their eyes, we began to love the area as well. A very worthwhile way to spend your time in Christchurch.

Wonderful tour
Mar 2019 • Friends
We had the absolute pleasure of seeing Christchurch with Caroline and Murray on one of their tours.
Their knowledge, passion and enthusiasm for the city and its environs made the trip wonderful. The trip was geared to the include the sort of things were interested in as well as places that were anyone visiting Christchurch 'should' see - it's not just another 'standard' tour by guides that are delivering exactly the same thing day after day, week after week.
We saw places and learned about different aspects of the city that we would never have found on our own - they were great company and the whole trip was great fun from start to finish.
If you have limited time, or just want a great introduction to Christchurch, don't hesitate to book - you won't regret it!

An amazing way to see Christchurch
Mar 2019 • Friends
Four of us booked a 3-hour city tour with Caroline.We had just arrived in New Zealand the night before and this was our first introduction to the country and the city of Christchurch. We had the privilege to be joined by her husband Murray. They answered every question we raised, gave us expansive information about Christchurch, its history and current events, and we were welcomed and treated like family. By the end of the day we were sorry to say goodbye. Caroline brought us home made historic Anzac (Australian-New Zealand Army Corps) cookies, and she treated us to the best frozen yogurt in the city if not the country. We had lunch together at the top of the hill at a wonderful little French Cafe called The Sign of the Kiwi. We were together for 6 hours and had we not wanted to catch the last tour of the botanical gardens at 3:30 I am sure they could have continued to tour us around until we had visited every last site there was to see in Christchurch. For anyone wanting to visit Christchurch, to avoid the crowds of the bus tours, and to have a very personal and friendly view of the city through the eyes of people who truly love it, I cannot recommend this trip enough.

Simply THE Best Way To Experience Christchurch
Mar 2019 • Friends
Simply the best way to see and experience Christchurch with Caroline and Murray, in such style. Loved every second in the beautiful vintage Kombi van. Saw areas and art work I'd never seen before, even though I've lived here for a couple of years.

They brought to life local history and art work with such amazing knowledge and enthusiasm. The trip was a real delight. It was our UK visitors their first view of the city and it couldn't have been better. We all totally loved it. Can't recommend the Sightseeing tour enough.
