We had a great last afternoon in Queenstown with guide Del sampling the beauty of The area. Trip into Skippers was spectacular. Drive through the river at Arrowtown then some wine tasting at Gibbston Valley. Del is hugely knowledgable about the area and a great guy to spend an afternoon with. Gave us great tips for mountain biking around the... More

What better way to celebrate Mothers Day for an 85 year old and daughter than to go four wheel driving in Skippers Canyon with Del. His vehicle was immaculate and very comfortable. Del has a wicked sense of humour, great driving skills and a vast knowledge of the region. The scenery was spectacular and we soaked it in while enjoying... More

We had an amazing experience with our guide Del. He was witty and knowledgable and really nice. The sights were absolutely stunning. The wineries were a nice touch but the ride through arrow town and skippers canyon were phenomenal. I was afraid given the tiny road and the STEEP drops but the scenery was unbelievable. During the rocky ride, I... More

After trying to book the 4x4 wine tour for months as a solo I was finally able to book on the day of the tour. The vistas were spectacular with numerous Lord of the Rings sites. Schlepping through the river near Arrowtown was fun and almost seemed to have too much traffic at times. Drinking wine was icing on the... More

We took the Wakatipu Lord of the Rings Off-Road 4X4 Adventure with Pete. It was just us so I sat in front and spread out. It was as fun driving as it was see the LOTR sights. The Ipad scenes and narrative was great. Lunch at Arrowtown was fun, we only panned for gold briefly as we had done that... More

My son, husband and myself took part in this on a lovely sunny day . After excellent instruction we were let loose. We all thoroughly enjoyed the trip and my 19 yr old son was able to go at the front .The course was not easy but was great fun

We were looking for something quick and different for our first day in Queenstown. The shop is very well run and easy to book. I drove and my wife decided to be the passenger. The 1000cc 4WD machine was loads of fun. They provide you with some jackets in case it's muddy. The trails are an awesome mix of fast... More

My daughter and I booked onto the Wakatipu Discovery of the Rings 4X4 Tour and as it was end of season it was just the two of us and driver/guide Pete. We didn't feel at all that it didn't matter there was only 2 of us, we had a blast doing some 4x4 river crossing and uphill stuff as well... More

The Skippers Canyon road is a very spectacular trip. I'd been in there once before with friends, but this trip was excellent. Our guide (Dennis) had encyclopaedic knowledge of the history of the area. His stories of the gold mining history and early ways of life brought the whole thing to life. The vehicle was comfortable with all seats facing... More
