I am a tour guide/tour operator based in Lyttelton specialising in small, friendly tours around Christchurch and the South Island, part time since 1996 and full time since 2006 (over 40 tours a year).
As an ex-teacher I find I can relate to visitors from most parts of the world quickly, having travelled extensively and having a wide interest base. From 1996-2011 I was mostly involved with educational tour groups (Group size 5 to 50, ages 12 to 75 from all over the globe).
Since 2011 I have worked with cruise ship passengers from Akaroa doing day excursions to Banks Penninsula/Christchurch (E S Tours...my own business) and small private tour groups (American, Malaysian, Russian, Indian etc) around the South Island. I have a "P endorsement" and licences 1,2,4 and 6, current 1st Aid Cert and Land Transport NZ TSL 0227492 . Liability and Vehicle Insurance is with Lowe, Schollum and Jones. Please feel free to have a look at www.estours.co.nz. Client reviews can also be found at Trip Advisor (E S Tours.....very proud of our 26 reviews...all 5 star) and " Tours By Locals" (Dermot Hall).
