TOUR SOUTH is a company which offers personalised day tours of AKAROA, CHRISTCHURCH and the greater SOUTH ISLAND of NEW ZEALAND. Along with our partners in major cruise ship ports throughout NEW ZEALAND, we specialize in a variety of full and half day (new this year in AKAROA!) tour itineraries to interest even the most discerning cruise ship traveller. We specialise in Cruise Ship Tours from Akaroa and Akaroa Day Tours from Akaroa to Christchurch.
Unquestionably, NEW ZEALAND is a very unique and special country with beautiful and often rugged coastlines washed by the Pacific Ocean and the Tasman Sea, its landscapes are both dramatic and diverse and in what is a relatively small and under populated land mass, yields breath-taking views of lakes and rivers, mountains and volcanos, glaciers and fiords, as well as rain forests and plains.
Doug BENNET is the Directors and main tour guide/driver for TOUR SOUTH - a company which has escorted in excess of 400 tours in and around NEW ZEALAND since its inception.
Doug has lived in CHRISTCHURCH for 30 years and is married with 3 children and 8 grandchildren. Having spent most of his early working life in department store retailing and then the glass and glazing industry, Doug has found his niche within the tourist industry and has a real love for interacting with people.
Doug is a real Kiwi, with vast local knowledge. It is his passion to provide each and every one of his guests with a personal and interactive experience. He accomplishes this by offering flexible itineraries, transparent pricing, quality vehicles with large viewing opportunities and a Worry - Free guarantee to cruise ship tour passengers.
