The team (esp Emily 💐) was amazing! We were on the Rees-Dart and had to return due to heavy snow. But we had organised no transport and had to walk til 6 pm before we got cell reception. Emily and team came to the rescue. Big shout out to Andre 💐 who drove into the night to find us. This is an amazing company that literally goes the extra mile!! Very grateful 😊😊

Thank you so much for your review. We were so glad you managed to get signal and that we managed to get a driver out to you! Hopefully we will not see you in the same circumstance again but would love to have you travel with us again in the future.

Almost one hour-drive from Queenstown, Glenorchy is a small town but contributes largely as the scenery spots in many popular movies.

Our Day 1 in New Zealand was met with a seriously flooded access road to the Greenstone Carpark. Phew! What now?? With the road closed, our walk plans could have come unstuck. But the driver Ed and the business owner were super helpful in assiting us with replanning and logistics. Their local knowledge and advice proved very helpful in rescheduling our trip plan with DOC, and we simply wouldn't have managed to get back on track without their help and trusted advice. Thanks so much to Glenorchy Journeys - the Furphettes from Melbourne.

We had a blast doing the water jets and hike. The water jets were way faster than we expected and it's a great way to see and enjoy the beautiful mountains, famous for being used in the Lord of the Rings and other movies and TV commercials. The hike wasn't much of a hike but rather a stroll in the woods. In New Zealand, there are no predators, you do not have to worry about encountering bears or snakes! Just don't forget your bug spray because the sand flies seriously eat you alive! They are the worst!

Excellent service. friendly and punctual. Took all the worry out of leaving car at track carpark and worrying if the streams would be impassible. Would certainly use them again.
