I organized a girls winery trip for my birthday. Was a great day of exploring the beautiful North Canterbury Wineries. Wine tastings and the platter lunch at Waipara Springs was excellent. Great value and a great day.

I cannot recommend Cheeky Kea Tours enough. If you’re reading this review, you’re probably already aware of how beautiful the South Island is going to be, and this tour will absolutely take you to the must-see destinations. But here’s why Cheeky Kea Tours will be the best choice for your South Island adventure:

Cheeky Kea Tours takes out only small tour groups. Not being on a huge bus with dozens of people allowed us to be more flexible with our time. Every day didn’t have to start at 7 am and every stop didn’t have to be made. The small group size also made it easier to build relationships within our tour. Within a few days, I didn’t feel that I was exploring the island with other tourists, but rather with really close friends

Cheeky Kea Tours feels like having a friend show you all the best spots in their hometown, except instead, you’re shown the entire South Island. Cheeky Kea Tours didn’t just show me the best of the South Island, though. It grew to also give me a group of friends, some of whom I’ve already traveled to see again.
Jesse, founder of Cheeky Kea Tours, was like the big brother of our group, making sure we had the full New Zealand experience. He bought everyone classic Kiwi meals and took us to spots we couldn’t have found without him as tourists. I was actually surprised by how many extra treats we were given free of charge. Those, along with free breakfast and accommodation, really helped financially. With only 6 of us, it was a much more intimate, friend-based feeling than your average tour

I did the 15 day South Island tour in December 2018, and I loved it. It was the perfect amount of time to see everything and not feel overwhelmed by it. The sights that I was taken to were so amazing. My favorite part was exploring Milford Sound on a cruise, getting so close to waterfalls was an unforgettable experience.

The atmosphere Cheeky Kea Tours creates allows you to be comfortable with being yourself. Being in a small group made it even better, I was able to hang out with others or do things on my own whenever I wanted.

I had a great holiday with Cheeky Kea Tours, I highly recommend it be the only company you choose to explore New Zealand.
