Meet our founders, Nick & Lynley
Driver Guides NZ was founded by Nick and Lynley Young. Both born and bred in New Zealand's magnificent South Island, Nick and Lynley have spent most of their lives farming this beautiful country.

They set up Driver Guides NZ because they wanted to showcase the country in a very special way. As seasoned travellers themselves, Nick and Lynley know that passionate local guides are key to unlocking a country's best-kept secrets. With their farming careers gradually wrapping up, they decided to found a genuinely local New Zealand travel guide company that could offer that magical blend of luxury and authentic local experience.

Driver Guides NZ has partnered up with Holland, Clarke and Beatson to ensure your accommodation arrangements are simple and seamless.

About our local New Zealand guides
All our Driver Guides have been handpicked for their extensive local knowledge. We choose only mature and experienced drivers, each of whom has a clean driving record and a current Passenger License. They have up to date First Aid training, and each vehicle is equipped with a Personal Locator Beacon for your utmost safety.

Your personal tour guide of New Zealand is an essential aspect of your trip. We seek to find the right match for your preferences, whether that’s someone who is male or female, extroverted and chatty or quietly knowledgeable. One thing they all have in common – besides their driving skill – is their passion for New Zealand and desire to share the best of it with you.
