High Country, awesome scenery, awesome group of people on the 2 day tour, Geoff & Lee looked after us not only with their fantastic morning tea & lunch stops each day in fabulous locations along the tour, the amount of knowledge Geoff has, ( a story for every part of the tour) if there was anything that had happened or happening, Geoff would know about it, Molly (4wd bus) was very comfortable & plenty room to move about. Having the snow on the mountain tops just topped off the scenery, accommodation in Hanmer Springs was great, pre dinner drinks with the tour group and a fabulous dinner. Thanks Geoff & Lee.

This is spectacular scenery in any season,.
Our autumn tour started in april 2013 for 3 days.The "added value" is the informed historical and scientific commentary by the drivers who have excellent knowledge of the area.
IT is far more comfortable to tour Molesworth station in the 4 wheel Drive Van.
The Drivers with their excellent Botanical Knowlege of the area showed us interesting Alpine Plants in the alpine meadow near Lake Tennyson.
We would recommend this tour to New Zealanders and Overseas Visitors as it shows a significant part of our farming Heritage .

We have long looked forward to visiting the South Island high country. The tour of Molesworth more than met expectations. Planning very professional. Mountains, rivers and vistas up there with the other scenic highlights around the world we have been privileged to visit. Great camera opportunities. Acommodation and food excellent and heritage stays at Ugbrooke, Top House and Rotoroa lodge memorable. Associated visits to olive grove, winery and lavendar farm well worthwhile. Contribution of guide/drivers Trevor Bryant and Will Parsons superb: Trevor's historical knowkledge and Will's affable attitude -- and their driving skills -- features of the tour. Highly recommended.

What an amazing 2 days of touring both the Molesworth & Rainbow Stations in Malborough. It is an awesome part of New Zealand, seldom visited but such a wonderful trip. The history, flora, scenery is wonderful. Organisation is superb, comfortable mini coach, excellent commentary, great food, what more could one ask for.

An extremely well run tour from start to finish. Trevor our tour guide had exceptional knowledge at his finger tips at all times and his commentaries were excellent. The accommodation and food was excellent. Before and after the tour Geoff and Lee provided help and information which was excellent and meant we had no worries. Was particularly significant for us due to our farming background and my father working there nearly 80 years ago. We have many great memories and have no hesitation in recommending this to others. Thank you for such a wonderful experience.
