We had a wonderful experience traveling from Greymouth to Queenstown with an overnight in Franz Joseph. A beautiful country and thanks to Paul we saw a great deal of it. He was professional, did not rush us and was very knowledgeable. So much better than getting on a bus with 50 other people. Much more personalized with greater flexibility.

Wayne was very professional and showed up 10 minutes early ready to go. Local guide with lots of regional knowledge to share. Would highly recommend for anyone wanting to do a personalized wine tour at a more affordable price point then other tours we looked at.

A very enthusiastic recommendation for a terrific private driver in New Zealand. We hired Paul Newton to drive us back and forth from the Nelson airport (close to an hour each way), and while this is certainly a small job for Paul, he was everything you'd want in a reliable, honest and reasonably priced private driver. His communication was spot on before the appointed pick-ups, and when our return flight was delayed by half an hour, he patiently waited for us at the airport to make sure we wouldn't be left hanging. When we offered to pay him for the extra time, he refused and said it was just good that everything worked out well. Paul is also a very interesting fellow to have a conversation with -- a definite bonus especially on longer drives. He knows the best hidden gems to take people to as opposed to only following the often very large tourist crowds these days in NZ during the peak season. Paul is a pleasure to deal with in every way.

We are a group of three retired couples from India and wished to travel to South New Zealand. We found Paul through Tripadvisor and would highly recommend his professional help during our recent trip. He and his team made our trip memorable by taking us in the best places, patiently answering all our questions, filling us with history of places we saw. I would highly recommend him to people who would prefer to br driven around in comfort .

Thanks so much for writing a review,it was a pleasure to have you all on board,and we are glad you loved the special scenic nature type spots we shared with you.We love showing our clients these spots instead of just the larger attractions and places all the bus loads of tours get taken to and its nice to hear our clients love what we are doing. Hopefully you all get back here again one day and maybe we can show you the same types of experiences on the north island.
