Genial Ross Mead is the perfect tour guide/chauffeur with an attention to detail that’s bordering on obsessive. His motto is ‘unrivalled excellence,’ and it isn’t a throwaway phrase. He specialises in weddings and other special events, but will also design a tour for you.
Expect spotless, pampered vehicles that include a luxurious leather-seat, S-type Jag, and LTD’s, the roomy limousines that have transported VIP’s for many years. The former cabinet maker and boat builder designed and built his own non-spill ‘piano finish’ lacquered tables for the back seat passengers’ drinks. Ross also has his own ‘mini-Civic theatre,’ modelled on the Auckland original.
The state of the art theatre, decorated in Ross’s understated maroon and gold branding, is used for small weddings, private movie showings, and corporate functions. The theatre's fit out includes plush leather chairs and jarra hardwood drink holders; it has its own blue ceiling with twinkling lights, and a custom-made dance floor!
