We had the best afternoon with Denis, making our way to Skippers from Queenstown. We loved listening to his tales from days gone by and his knowledge of the wider region was incredible.
The journey to Skippers was awesome and will definitely be back on other adventures with these guys!
Don't even bother looking at anyone else to 4WD with, these guys are the best.

Pete was our guide and driver. He's a great communicator, getting the balance just right between too much and too little information. Most of the trip is on a narrow dirt road that requires skill to navigate and Pete did this with ease. An excellent way to spend half a day.
