Greetings from Christchurch, New Zealand!
I am Kim McDonald, and I am a personal guide in Christchurch. I'd like to welcome you to my world, and help you discover the corners of my city that you wouldn't necessarily find yourself. I can point out things that you might otherwise just walk past, and share with you stories that the guide books couldn't possibly squeeze in.
I can't wait to show you what it is that I love so much about Christchurch. In my opinion it is the most beautiful city in New Zealand, and undeniably the fastest changing one, possibly in the world. My priority is you, and ensuring you have an unforgettable experience in Christchurch!
Travel has long been a passion of mine, and that is why I share the enthusiasm of the many tourists who travel, often very long distances, to visit New Zealand. Like most New Zealanders I hold a huge pride for my country and my city. There is nothing more satisfying for me than helping people look beyond the road cones and rubble to see the historic and refreshingly innovative layers unfold. With so much loss and constant change taking place since the devastating earthquakes of 2010 and 2011, it is very important to me to share the stories of our past, ensuring the legacy of our heritage is not lost forever.
I have dedicated myself to the tourism industry for over 15 years, in particular guiding tourists both in New Zealand and in Europe. I have always preferred the more personal interactions which can only be experienced one-on-one or with small groups.
As your private guide, once you book me I am completely yours - no need to share me with others. Your tour is flexible, tailored to your interests, and your time schedule.
For me, it's all about you. Let me be part of your journey, and together we can explore the many dimensions of this exciting city!
