This was my favourite thing we did in Queenstown by far!!! Jenny was an incredibly talented and lovely tour guide/ 4x4 expert and made our experience incredible! We were in awe as the terrain went from rocky to icy and Jenny handled it all like a pro whilst also telling us all about the settlement of Macetown. This was the most unforgettable experience and not only would I recommend it to anyone, I will definitely do it again next time we are down!

Peter is an absolute legend! The road was bumpy which was great fun, and the views were breath taking! At our stop in Mace town, the view was majestic yet there was little wind and everything was so quiet I could hear my own thoughts.
10/10!
Can't wait to get back to Queenstown for another adventure, maybe the Skipper route next time around.

We had Peter take us on this trip and all had a great experience. Morning tea at Macetown was not expected. When one of our party left his phone on the 4WD the Company were so helpful and popped it into our letterbox.

Today we had the pleasure of spending 4 hours with Peter on the Macetown trip. However, this is the 2nd trip we have done with Nomad Safaris in the last 2 years with our first trip being with Rob in to Skippers. This has been the highlight of our trip on both occasions. Peter had great chats and was highly knowledgeable of the area and has amazing driving skills! We will definitely be back for another tour next time we are in Queenstown! This is an amazing experience that you won’t regret!

Magnificent 4 Wheeldrive experience to Macetown. Johno is a very talented driver and his knowledge of the history of the area quite impressive. He has a great sense of humour and is a genuine people person.
The only disappointment was the lack of building remains - ut you guys cannot help that.

We had wanted to visit Macetown for years and this trip exceeded all our expectations. Jenny was a very knowledgeable and entertaining guide and we felt very safe on what is quite a challenging road. Macetown is well worth a visit and we really enjoyed the trip. It was the highlight of our South Island holiday.
