Christchurch - Canterbury - South Island


Kia Ora and Welcome to Scotty B tours!

Scotty B is a owner / operator driver guide here in the South Island of New Zealand

I've had the joy & privilege of guiding & driving thousands of tourists around New Zealand over the last 9 years

In 2018 I decided to go it alone and started my own tour company. My aim was to give travellers to NZ a more authentic, meaningful experience. I want to show you amazing places bigger tour groups don't see, hidden spots only locals know about and give you a chance to meet great kiwis along the way.


I have visited over 40 countries around the world and I truly understand the magic a local guide can bring. Whatever you'd like to see and do, I can make that dream come true!

Check out some tour options below. Most trips can cater for 9 passengers.

We can also arrange a North Island tour with Logan at Go Explore NZ He also is a driver guide with loads of experience

Offset Travel

We hear a lot about our carbon footprint for travel these days and we want to do something about it.

Where possible I recommend guest use eco friendly products. Simple steps like using a keep cup can help with waste reduction

At Scotty B tours we are doing our part by limiting water use when cleaning our van and use bio friendly cleaning products 

We also offer you a chance to offset your travel by planting a tree on our family farm. You can also select this native plant from our nursery

If you want you can plant it yourself or I can plant it when the time is right

Planting is best in the winter / autumn (fall)





"Scotty was a superb guide for our group of 8 for the day. He helped us devise a day trip that included Akaroa, Christchurch, Jet Boating on the Hurunui River and a wonderful tasting and lunch at a winery (the best BBque lamb I've ever tasted). I highly recommend Scotty -- he was punctual, knowledgeable, genuine and funny." Terry UK

"Scotty was a great guide. He provided options of things to do in each place we visited and he was always available when needed. He was also fun to be around with his easy going attitude it made me enjoy the New Zealand way of living. I felt that he was part of our group instead of just being in charge of us." Elisabeth, USA
