Hello Mr Rajesh. Thank your for your kind words. Yes our late night journey from Christchurch City to Queenstown was great fun and we had a lot of laughs on the way. Even with the 1 hour unexpected detour to Wanaka and over the crown range. Be safe on your journeys and hope to meet you again some day. Kind regards. Mike

Mike Halliday took me on a one tour to Akaroa from Christchurch. He was the best, informative, helpful and considerate. I recommend him highly. I had a nice fun day of seeing the beautiful NZ countryside and this cute town, squeezed into a work trip. Highly recommended!

Hello Manisha, Thank you for your positive feedback this is always appreciated. It was my pleasure to take you to Akaroa for the day just a pity the weather was not the best but I hope the warm lunch at Bully Hays restaurant made up for that. I hope you enjoy the photos we forwarded of Akaroa on a fine day. Hope to see and your family back in New Zealand soon. Thanks Mike Halliday. Trip July 2019. Manisha is from the USA

Reliable, Reasonable and Resourceful
Jul 2019 • Friends
Before our trip began we had booked in advance a private tour with Chauffeur NZ from Queenstown to Christchurch which was the return leg of our ski vacation in NZ. Upon our arrival into Christchurch on the very first day of our trip, our flight to a Queenstown was cancelled at last minute, and the 6 of us were stranded at the airport with a host of bookings for various activities, reservations and commitments at risk. Not knowing what else to do or who to call, I called Mike (owner of Chauffeur NZ) and in less than an hour, he picked us up from the airport and we were on our way to Queenstown. As we had more bags than passengers, there were logistical and administrative hurdles that Mike helped to solve (which he did). Not only did he manage to get us to Queenstown safe and in very good time, he made the journey light hearted (very important since we just had a bad start to our vacation) and enjoyable. In some countries, I would have had to pay a “ransom” in that situation, but Mike is honest and reasonable in his pricing.

A safe and considerate driver and a knowledgeable and interesting guide. We were brought around in a brand new vehicle. He pays attention to details as well to make the journey comfortable and enjoyable.

It was our good fortune and blessing to have come across Mike and Chauffeur NZ.

Thank you, Mike. The airline gave us credits for the cancelled flight. We will need to find time to make another trip. Perhaps during lupin season :)

Mike was very jovial , friendly and very entertaining from the start of the journey which started from Christchurch and ended at Queenstown. He took well care of my family members . He was very professional too . His rates were affordable too for the things we managed to witnessed during our trip, especially within the tight schedule of three days. My family and myself definitely enjoyed our trip with Mr Mike and I am sure we will be back soon !! Thanks Mr Mike once again, it was a pleasure knowing and travelling you!!!! 10/10 for your service !!

Hello and thank you for your great review. Yes it was a long few days but the scenery views amazing for everyone. There were many photo opportunities and breaks on the way as our chauffeured tours do not have to stop at specific locations, this is what a chauffeur service provides. Thanks you again and looking forward to looking after you when you return. Mike Halliday, ChauffeurNZ.com South Island New Zealand

Professional, enthusiastic and considerate
Apr 2019 • Friends
Right from the beginning, Mike was enthusiastic and passionate about all things NZ, and gave us many suggestions as to how to best use our short time in the South Island. He was very patient while we 4 friends went back and forth with changes after changes of itinerary. He was always 15 min early waiting for us with a smiling face, trailing us as we lingered in shop after shop. He would go out of his way to show us good photo stops, shared his photos with us and took photos for us. Most of his recommendations for eating spots were fantastic. His car is always clean!
Throughout the entire trip, we always felt safe as he was very careful, considerate of our well-being (3 of us suffer from car-sickness), making sure the air flow is good for us, not driving recklessly, etc. He has become a good friend! We would highly recommend Mike Halliday to anyone, and we will go back to him again when we next visit Christchurch region.

Mike the Owner is an enthusiastic Kiwi who loves and obviously knows his country well. He is extremely professional throughout without making our group feel in the least bit uncomfortable. He is an excellent driver and his car was spotless. We took on board some of his recommendations throughout our trip of the South Island. Would not hesitate to recommend ChauffeurNZ.com, Mike and his team.

The best way to see the Christchurch area
Feb 2019 • Couples
Our family spent the day with Mike, crossing through local vantage points and quaint towns out to Akaroa. Mike is a lifelong local who's enthusiastic, knowledgable and was able to customise our day to exactly what we were looking for. His mercedes is pristine and comfortable, perfect for any length of trip and even has a fridge for bits and pieces we bought along the way!

Hello Dang TrangHe, Thank you for the opportunity to take you and your family on a tour of the South Island of New Zealand.

Punctual, Safe and Friendly
Jul 2018 • Couples
Mike Halliday (owner and driver) was consistently punctual and pleasant, from booking over email and all the way up to the end of the trip. The car was clean, new, and accommodated perfectly for our ski bag (as requested). Mike was extremely friendly, kind and knowledgeable. He offered insightful commentary and conversation throughout the journey and was also a skilled, safe driver.

We arrived at our destination in Tekapo (from Christchurch) in no time and, because Mike was also staying the night in Tekapo, he offered pick us up from our accomodation and drive us a drive to our restaurant (that he helped us book) that night free of charge.

Certainly would recommend to anyone, while it is pricey (it is a justifiably luxurious service) it is worth what you pay and Mike will go above and beyond for you. Thanks Mike!

Hello Lachie and Steph, Thank you very much for your kind works. It was my pleasure to be able to transfer two of our Australian cousins while in New Zealand. We believe in going the extra mile for our guests from the time of the first email to the final good buys. All the best and thank you. Mike

PERFECT shore excursion!
Feb 2018 • Couples
Mike was fantastic! He picked us up in Ankaroa as we stepped off the dock. We drove through the countryside to Christchurch! Our trip was filled with interesting conversation .... perfect for us since we had lots of questions about the peninsula and Christchurch. Mike was a fountain of information about the region since he is a local! The tour of Christchurch and the aftermath of the earthquakes including their ambitious re building. Mike tailored the day to our tastes - coffee, vistas, shopping and a great lunch on the beach! After a terrible cruise sponsored excursion at our previous port it was delightful to spend an easy relaxing day with Mike in his spotless car seeing beautiful New Zealand!
