It's hard to know where to start after an experience that exceeds your expectations in every way. From start to finish, our experience with Mike was seamless. The booking process was well explained and easy. Mike's communication throughout was prompt and professional. A phone call the day before to confirm our trip is part of the service Mike offers. On the day of our trip, Mike was suited up and waiting in our hotel lobby with a big smile and friendly greeting. The beautifully maintained S Class Mercedes, complete with water, tissues, mints etc was ready to go. The car was immaculate and comfortable. Our trip to Akaroa included stops along the way for great photo opportunities, as well as the chance to check out a gallery and little shops. Mike was more than happy to go with the flow, and at no time did we feel rushed or feel that we were needing to stick to a strict itinerary. The Akaroa Dolphin cruise was included in our tour cost, and it did not disappoint. Just like at the hotel lobby, upon completion of the cruise, Mike was waiting for us on the pier. One thing that really stood out to us was Mike's extensive knowledge of the area. From Christchurch to Akaroa and back, Mike was able to share so much knowledge and fun facts about the areas we were travelling to. Mike is such an asset to the tourism industry and we had a lot of fun and laughs on the day. We would absolutely recommend Mike and Chauffeur NZ to anyone looking for a tour that they won't forget. Thanks Mike! Cath & Tony

Hello Cath and Tony, I'm very pleased I was able to provide the chauffeured service you required for your special weekend holiday from Australia. One thing that makes our service great is the people we meet and being able to provide some real kiwi hospitality. From the time we greeted you both at the Heritage hotel you new we were all going to have a great day. A big thanks again to the team at Bully Hays for lunch and the Akaroa Dolphin team in Akaroa for looking after our guests. It was also great to here that after I dropped you of you enjoyed the forward booking we made for you at Twenty Seven Steps restaurant. Thanks again and thank you for spending the time in writing your review. Mike Halliday

I contacted Mike a number of months ago to advise I was travelling from Scotland and planning a surprise wedding for my fiance. He was happy to be 'in on the act' and provide transport for the day (a very comfortable Mercedes minivan) From my first contact to dropping us all off after the event Mike was brilliant. Engaging and funny, great service with a smile! He even managed to hide our 2 witnesses in the back seat of the car when he picked us up to maintain the element of surprise! We had a great day Mike, one to truly remember and it got off to a brilliant start and went so smoothly, thanks in no small part to you. See you for our anniversary!

Hello to our special guests from Scotland, Wow what an absolute pleasure it was to be a small part of your special day traveling from the other side of the world to our special place in the world. The location "The sign of the bell bird" was spectacular as was the great day Christchurch turned on for you. We like to assist with the special surprise requests, and for this one we pulled it off, not bad. Thanks again and see you again shortly. Kind regards, Mike

Mike arranged wonderful private tour for us to Akaroa. Beautiful views from hill top , charming fruit farm on the way, good sea food restaurant, dolphin cruise,,, He is very reliable, friendly and enthusiastic in meeting our expectations, much more than expected. Also he is flexible and stopped by a winery as we asked..We are not good at English, but we enjoyed much and felt very comfortable with his guide and drive.

As a regular chauffer user, I can easily say that Mike was amazing and exceeded all expectations. I had booked Mike to pickup my mother from the airport and take her to her hotel - she loved his friendly personality, and was so excited to get a mini sightseeing tour and commentary included. Mike then picked me up from the airport the following day - my plane had been delayed by 3 1/2 hours, yet was still there to meet me (without any ill feelings!). Mike took us all back to the airport at the end of our holiday and walked us (and our bags) into the terminal. My mother farewelled him with a hug, just like she was saying good-bye to a family member. Thank you Mike - your friendly and professional service topped off our holiday!
