Super fun day, instructors were very friendly and made me feel comfortable even though I was nervous. They were very patient with me and were very encouraging when I sucked, while at the same time remaining professional. It was obvious they love what they do, and are keen to share that love with others. Roads are really good and well... More

Book with this company, small groups we had 3 others in the jeep. Our driver was funny, knowledgeable and was very skilled at the wheel. Mountain passes were gut-churning and the river crossing were great fun. We went to quite a few LOTR locations and took some great pictures. We are coming back next year in Summer to do their...

Although I have done this tour before, my daughter had not, and as we are both LOTRs fans (and I enjoyed my 1st tour so much in Oct 2014) we decided to do the Wakatipu discovery of the rings tour. We are both so glad we did; we had a fantastic afternoon getting to explore the LOTR sites & greater... More

Did the wine tour this afternoon with Pete our driver. We were an unusual group as all people living in NZ and not too fussed about LoTR. Pete was outstanding driver tour guide. We had a really fun time both seeing the awesome sights. Bombing about the arrow river and then tasting (and buying) some great wines. Can't rate it... More

We were on the 4x4 wine tour on June 1st (4Wd-ing, wine tasting and LoTR sightseeing). Our guide was great, really welcoming and easy going. The 4WDing was good fun, especially the river routes, the views of greater Queenstown and the short ride through historic Arrowtown. The wineries we visited (Peregrine and Chard Farm) offered, from memory, 6-8 wines to... More

When in Queenstown we decided to go on the Off-Roading Lord of the Rings and Wine Tour. I'm a fan of the movies, and wanted to see some sights but didn't want to spend an entire afternoon just doing that so this was the perfect compromise. Our guide was lovely, and very knowledgeable, ensuring our trip was memorable in spite... More

I did this tour with my sister who is a bit LoTRs fan and wanted to do a LoTRs tour and we both thought that an option that incorporated 4x4 off-roading and wine tasting was a great way to fit this into our trip! Unfortunately, we had really cloudy/rainy weather so we missed out on a lot of the spectacular... More

What a terrific tour! Judy and I were awe of the stunning landscapes and the geology made more impressive by our Guide's knowledge not to mention his driving skills. We were expecting relicts of a mining town and some scenic landscapes. The tour well and truly exceeded these expectations from the moment the 4x4 hubs were engaged. Thanks for a... More

A bit average tour. Be sure to sit up front otherwise you get sick in the back. Lunch options are home made sandwiches which are OK but I recommend you pack your own. Nice but a bit average. Don't be shy to ask questions.

We went on a lord of the rings Glenorchy tour with our awesome guide TONYTMAN who was very good and knew a lot about Queenstown and also the filming of LOTR. I think the part that made the tour was his inside knowledge of him working on set. We were even the first customers in the new 4x4!
