Matt has been leading MoaTrek tours since 2008 and is the Senior Pro of the MoaTrek guide team. Originally from the West Coast of the South Island, in a past life Matt was a school teacher but has been a professional guide here in New Zealand for 20 years.
Guests who travel with Matt always tell us they love his humour and wit, but most of all what they learn about New Zealand, our history, culture and environment. Matt has a passion for NZ history and many of our other guides turn to Matt for guidance on this.

Matt was outstanding, a real joy to be with for the three weeks. He is incredibly knowledgeable about NZ and obviously loves to share it with the group. He has a great sense of humour and often kept us laughing. He welcomed questions and we obliged. After touring with Matt I can't imaging seeing New Zealand without such a wonderful guide. He kept us on schedule and often made a few extra stops which were always worth the time. He complemented the incredible scenery and cultural history of NZ and essentially "made" the trip well worth flying half way around the world!
