Tour Guide René Aukens
René studied economics and worked in the financial world. 20 years ago he fell in love with New Zealand and finally emigrated from the Netherlands with his partner in 2004. He concentrates on guiding hiking trips, adoring the diversity of the New Zealand landscape. He is an avid mountain hiker, biker and runner. In his spare time he studies astronomy and astrology.
Go on a hiking trip during your holiday in New Zealand with our guide René who says:
“Life is what your thoughts make of it.”
“It’s been almost a year since we travelled to New Zealand. And we regularly remind ourselves about the other end of the world. (…) Our neighbour, a dentist, even intends to give up his practice and immigrate to New Zealand.”
Sabine S. & Joseph L., Luxembourg
We received the following feedback from our customers who joined our guide Astrid Brauksiepe on a safari tour:
“Hi Astrid, we would like to thank you again for the super guided tour in New Zealand. Aitutaki Cook Islands afterwards was fantastic, indescribable. (…) Everything worked out great. Big hug and take care.“
Renate & Rolf O., Stuttgart
A family from Spain who went on a self-drive tour throughout New Zealand wrote to us:
“I want to send you a VERY BIG THANK YOU for the trip you have booked for us. All services were perfect and I was honestly very impressed to receive such a big dossier with information, maps etc. This was really very professional! We had a fantastic time in your wonderful country and are already thinking of how we can manage to be back soon again. We fell in love with the country and people who were without exception marvellous.”
