Call Jeeves Testimonials



Dear Warwick,

It was a wonderful experience to tour the incredible South Island of New Zealand with you. In you, not only we found a skillful safe driver, a meticulous planner and knowledgeable guide but a warm hearted, extremely accommodative and cheerful person too who contributed in making our trip an amazing one. Though a short interaction, Karen too impressed us with her enthusiasm and energy levels. Whenever we'll see those memorable "Shavani" pics we'll always remember you. Best wishes and regards to you and your family. Cheers . I'll send few pics of yours with us on your Whatsapp no. Warm regards Dr. Sanjay Sanadhya.

Hello Karen,

My daughter and I booked Call Jeeves for a day trip to see Castle Hill. We didn't have any other areas we specifically wanted to see, but with plenty of time, Karen suggested several wonderful spots for us to stop. She only needed a few minutes chatting with us to know exactly the types of things that would interest us. She was spot on with everything and we really enjoyed our time with her. We learned plenty about the area without it sounding like a school lecture.

I highly recommend Call Jeeves if you are looking for something outside the scope of the cruise ship offerings.  We wanted to say again how wonderful our trip to Castle Hill with Karen was.  I just did a review on TripAdvisor that I thought I would share with you in case you don't see them often.  Rest assured, if we are ever in your area again, we will be in touch. Thanks, Mary.

Hi Karen,

We are back in Australia after our cruise and we just wanted to thank you again for our day trip during our stopover in Akaroa. You showed considerable patience and resolve putting up with all our family dynamics - including old world grandpas! You deserve a medal for that alone.

But the tour was amazing and we got to see so much of the Volcanic Peninsula that we hadn't seen before, so it was really a wonderful and worthwhile trip in that beautiful part of the world. So we really enjoyed ourselves thanks to your warmth and hospitality. We'll be sure to look you up next time we're in town. All the best, Justin, Sarit and the rest of the crazy family.

Warwick & Karen,

I just wanted to send you and Karen a huge "thank you' for all you both did to make our day in Akaroa special and memorable. Your patience and assistance while I struggled to get the group put together along with Karen's help and patience as she made the tour as thorough as possible are greatly appreciated by all 6 of us.

We accomplished more than we thought possible when the plan was initiated ........all a result of your and Karen's help and hard work. While it is unlikely I will return to New Zealand, I would not hesitate to use your touring service again or recommend them  to others who may venture to New Zealand in the future.

Thanks again! Len Cioni. PS: We spoke to others from the ship who took the train to Arthurs Pass that day and they were disappointed which only goes to reinforce the wisdom of the suggestions you made to me!

Hi Jeeves,

We had a tours with  Karen on February 16th and 17th from Akaroa. We were the group from Alabama, USA off of the Seabourn Cruise Line. My husband and I were the two non Trump supporters in the group, in case our name doesn’t ring a bell.  Duane and I wanted to offer our condolences and to let you know how sorry we are for the difficult time your country is going through and the loss of so many innocent people. New Zealand was such a wonderful friendly place to visit. Everyone we met was so kind and helpful to us. Your country unlike ours is being very proactive about the problem of mass shootings. Know you are on our hearts and minds. Sincerely, Duane and Sue

Dear Karen and Warwick, 
We want to thank you for leading us on a most wonderful and memorable trip to the South Island.  We enjoyed learning about New Zealand, discovering meat pies, attempting to speak Kiwi-ish, feeding sheep, jet boating, appreciating the beautiful landscape, and especially spending time with you, Karen. Although our visit with you was brief, we felt as if we were bidding farewell to an old friend at the airport! Overall, we were left with incredible impressions of your beautiful country. Ron & I had such a nice time at so many new experiences in New Zealand. All the best to you both & I hope we someday meet again.

Dear Bridget,

 You may recall doing a day trip two months ago for me and my party from the Celebrity Solstice. It has taken a long time for us to fully appreciate the wonderful holiday we had. One of the highlights of the holiday certainly was the Call Jeeves Tours trip with you from Akaroa and around the area. Being a bit rushed to re-board the ship, we left after a brief good-bye...............Never the less, in appreciation of your hospitality, Patricia and I would like you to have the enclosed. Best wishes,

- John, R., UK. -



Dear Bridget, 
Thanks for your wonderful tour yesterday. We will certainly recommend you to any friends that visit Akaroa. Cheers,

Ultra-professional Tour Guide. 

Just completed a five day tour with Jeeves and can't say enough good things about Warwick who absolutely made our visit to New Zealand's South Island one of the most enjoyable travel experiences we've had in a long time --- and we're not exactly rookies, having visited 55 countries over the years. Personable and professional, Warwick gave us many invaluabe suggestions to get the most out of our visit, each being spot on. If your travels take you to New Zealand, look no further than Jeeves to arrange and fulfill an interesting itinerary -- you won't be disappointed.

Dear Warwick, 

We had a safe trip back to the states although having trouble sleeping. We thank you very much for making our trip memorable and safe.  You were absolutely terrific and would love for you to use us a reference for anyone at all traveling to New Zealand.  I had pictures developed last night and showed 2 of the kids some of our sites. They all want to visit because it is so beautiful. Karen, I love my necklace, ring and earrings from Talbot. The lady was lovely and it turned out I bought a necklace that she had on herself, always a great compliment.  I did tell her you sent me so you should stop by and let her know you do recommend her store regardless of husbands desires. LOL.Our best to you both and much appreciation.

Dear Karen,  
Just to let you know that Cecile and I truly enjoyed the tour you gave us with a very unique glance into the wonderful world of wine making with the delightful couple from Italy and the great tour of the City.  We truly enjoyed it but I had to hit the ground running upon my return. I hope your business is doing well and thank you for your special effort to make lemonade out of lemons.  It worked!!  Yours in Rotary:

Hi Warwick, 
so nice to hear from you.We had a wonderful two days with Karen. Karen was like the Eveready Battery Bunny - she just kept on going. Her commentaries were more than informative and she maximized every moment we had to spend with her. Truly one of the best guides we had during our 16 days of touring New Zealand. Karen is truly an asset and her love being a guide and for New Zealand was infectious. Best to you and Karen
