Here are some comments from past guests who have experienced genuine West Coast Hospitality with Kea West Coast Tours.
"And a plug for West Coast Kea Heritage Tours, who arranged the details of our tour on the West Coast, including our meetings and briefings with the many Chief Executives and Mayors. If you are thinking of arranging a group tour in any part of NZ, you couldn’t do better than asking Matt Lysaght to undertake the detailed arrangements, including transport, accommodation and excellent commentaries."
Graham Kelly, Immediate Past President, Assoc. of Former Members of the Parliament of NZ.
"Matthew, Thank you for making what would have been a lovely trip because of scenery alone a very unique one because of your knowledge and your passion for New Zealand..."

"Our visit to South Island was short but the memory will be long!
You gave us a wonderful tour of your country.
We appreciate very much your knowledge and enjoyed your sense of humour and consideration..."

"...wanted to thank you for a lovely tour of the West Coast. ....great hikes of Bridal Veil Falls and the Punchbowl Falls. ....appreciated hiking through the rain forests, and your informative tales of the culture, history, and the Maori. Thank you for making the trip such an amazing memory."
Joanne & Alvin, Baltimore, Maryland, USA. Feb. 2011.
"Hi Matt .......we had a great time with you and appreciated your humor and knowledge very much! .....
We all agree that the Blue Pools walk was one of the best of the entire trip. The
forest was magical and the pools themselves were beautiful beyond belief.
We loved having a guide who could take care of the driving and keep us informed about where we were and what we were looking at. You did a great job finding us places to eat, and keeping us active despite the weather problems.
Thanks again for such great service, companionship and guidance for a big part of our NZ vacation!"
John, Boston, USA. January 2011
"...pleased to be able to get onto a range of farms and speak to 'real' kiwis not just those tourist set ups.
The 'fresh fish' dinner we had was exceptional. All really loved the fish and enjoyed its fresh preparation. Thanks, - a real winner!"
Neil Nelson, Singleton Beef Group. Nov. 2010
"...Not only was I treated to an afternoon of spectacular scenery and magnificent natural rock formations but the guide was both entertaining and extremely informative. If you only have a short time to explore and you want something memorable I highly advise you try the Punakaiki Tour."
Jeannette, Canada. Sep. 2009
"Thank you very much for the really great pictures! Mary and I are constantly talking about the wonderful time that we had with you and the wonderful sights that we experienced from Queenstown to Greymouth."
