One-of-a-kind experience!!
Sep 2019 • Couples
Unbelievable tour! They have exclusive access to farmland and hiking trails providing breathtaking panoramic views of Glenorchy and Paradise Valley, which they can maneuver through with 4WD. Charles was very friendly and informative with his farming background, and they cater the tour to each group’s preferences. Well worth this one-of-a-kind experience!

Routeburn Valley Walk (full day)
Dec 2017 • Couples
We had a great day with Charles hiking up and down the Routeburn Valley. We started with a bit of rain, but then saw a rainbow as it cleared up. We learned a ton and enjoyed both the scenery and the company. The trip back allowed us to view some of the backdrops of the Lord of the Rings in the Paradise Valley. This was one of our favorite adventures during our two weeks on the South Island.

Amazing Time
Jun 2018 • Family
It was an amazing tour of Paradise Valley and Charles, our guide, did a great job organising the trip. We were all in his safe hands as we drove up mountain tracks in his 4WD to view stunning LOTR scenery. He was very accommodating and this tour is highly recommended for LOTR fans. If only the weather was better as it started drizzling and obscured some of the view in the later half of the day but that wasn't within the control of Charles. Something not to be missed is the lunch at Kinloch. Very quaint and homely lodge with good food.

Great Weather - Excellent Tour
Mar 2018 • Couples
Spent the day with Charles touring the greater Glenorchy area. The scenery is spectacular and Charles was a exceptional host/guide. Charles is very knowledgeable about the area (e.g. history, geology, current issues, farming, sheep/wool industry, LOTR sites, etc.).

Thank you Tom for your review, the Glenorchy area is one that deserves a full day to explore the valleys, trails, movie locations & secret places the Ultimate Day Tour and so close to Queenstown...Thank you Charles.

Priceless moments- Paradise Valley
Dec 2017 • Family
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!
