About Maossie Tours

Who is Maossie?

  • Maossie is a Christchurch-based family company who know how to look after people really well.
  • "Maossie" is a fun-play on "Maori" and Aussie" - which is our proud heritage

We love adventure and FUN!

  • Like these few photos show: we share your love of adventure. Whether caving, rafting, tramping, snow skiing, horse riding, or climbing mountains. It's our "happy place"!
  • Most of all: your enjoyment is our business - and that, along with safety, is one of the few things we treat REALLY seriously!

Your safe, most wonderful experience is our priority

  • We take great pride in giving our customers the BEST possible experience
  • We really love meeting people from other cultures and sharing experiences
  • We know where the best places are and how to get there safely

Luxury travel - and maybe a few surprises along the way!

  • Our luxury Mercedes-Benz 4x4 AWD bus will get to places many larger coaches are unable to
  • We are both musicians - don't be surprised if you find yourself singing along to a waiata (song) or two at one of our incredible destinations!

Not just your average tour guides!

Your hosts Nicole and Gary are not just your average guides. 

Nicole has been a jazz vocalist & musician most of her life: she is passionate about arts-based community development, social inclusion, sharing stories, and nurturing the artistic talent & identity of the next generation. Currently vocalist for the Ellesmere Big Band (who have a 120-year-old history), Nicole writes, records and performs original gospel music.

On the other hand Gary is a fully qualified and accredited farm / rural adviser and economist with a distinguisdhed academic career: But he is hardly technical and boring - rather, lively and entertaining delivering "informed fun"! Gary loves meeting people from different cultures, and thinks he has the best job anyone could wish for!

Whether gold panning, having lunch in a high­ country shearing shed, or enjoying a New Zealand waiata and folk songs accompanied on harp and guitar, your experiences with Gary and Nicole hold promise to be extremely memorable and very special!
