So much fun! The 4x4 off road tour takes you into some of the most remote parts of Queenstown. Depending on which tour you do depends where you go but our guy took us through rivers and dirt trail-roads to places we would never have access to on our own. It gets pretty bumpy at some points, which was even... More

We were collected from our motel and 3 of us headed off into the hills... was great to see more of the queenstown area than just the township. Highlight was going through the arrow river lots of fun.

Fabulous private off road 4x4 adventure to Skippers Canyon (through and back its winding, rugged and breathtaking cliff side roads), Arrowtown (charming little town that was the gateway to the Macetown off road track with multiple Arrow River crossings, including one featured in the Lord of the Rings movie trilogy), and Wanaka (quiet lakeside town with a side trip to...

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
