“This is a great country and I have a great job – showing off New Zealand to people who appreciate it as much as I do. I get a real buzz out of making each tour an exceptional experience for each guest.”
Mark established Awesome Tours, after recognising that people valued having a personal, well-informed local guide, who could safely drive them around and – if they wanted – put together a tailor-made tour.
With his own extensive travel experiences behind him, Mark understands what is required in a guide – that some people want time to explore on their own, while others are looking for a fully-guided package.Read more about mark Meet the whole team
