We had a pleasure of a tour hosted by Marie, the way Marie told the story from the perspective of a someone with a real connection to the history of the Banks Peninsula made the morning fantastic. Having a morning tea overlooking Akaroa Harbour was beautiful. I can highly recommend booking a tour. Definitely seven stars.

It was really a wonderful tour. We were fortunate enough to get Marie as our host guide. The way she described the history of that particular area and her connection to that was quite interesting to listen. It was a good learning for us indeed. And the scenic beauty of Bank Peninsula is amazing undoubtedly. It was really a great experience even in a rainy day.

I was lucky enough to go on a tour hosted by Marie and can't say enough about how great it was. Banks Peninsula is a beautiful location with fascinating flora, fauna and an intriguing history. Marie's story telling ability and imagery first took me back in time, then stepped me through to the present day and then propelled me into the future. She has a a genuine connection and passion to protect and conserve Banks Peninsula, she is full of information and really good fun too. I would recommend her tours to anyone visiting Akaroa.

Can’t wait to book one of these tours. The photos are truly beautiful. When travelling overseas I’ve always wanted to get a deeper knowledge of an area & someone is offering just that in our own backyard.
