Great country side tour
, Sep 2018
This was an excellent tour!!! Charles --drove us thru the ridiculously breath taking and most beautiful places safely, We spent time for lovely scenic pictures and he shared with us the Lord of the Rings stories. The tour to the farm was great too. He showed us the native birds and the farm animals. Over all it was a great tour

Priceless moments! Our private day tour with Eric on a 4WD to the Paradise Valley, diamond lake, the private farms at Mt. Earnslaw station, ISenguard, walking up the Routeburn track was simply fabulous...The 4WD drive up the slate quarry was the icing on the cake, something that cannot be done in a large group and vehicle and was spectacular. It was just our family and the guide and was a distinct experience that everyone must try. We snapped several pictures at the scenic locations where Lord of the Rings was filmed. Eric was awesome - patient and extremely accommodating without rushing the sightseeing and gave us insights on the various spots and trees. I still remember the Horopito spicy plant... In my opinion this private tour experience on a 4WD should never be missed by one!

Charles was an excellent guide? He took us way off the beaten path to areas with absolutely stunning scenery. What a great day!

Queenstown and the surrounding area are extremely picturesque and beautiful, and this tour allowed us to see these sights up close and personal. Through this tour, our guide was able to give us access to private farmland and take us to working sheep farms and sights that we wouldn't have been able to see through other tours. Fans of The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings trilogies will enjoy this tour as well, as you will be taken to different film locations for the movies. Be prepared to be bounced around though. The terrain can be a little bumpy.
