The shuttle bus is quite unique and cool,
It combines the idea of truck and coach.
The glass top of the vehicle gives you a spectacular scenery.
Driver is nice and knowledgeable.

'TIME FOR A GREAT ADVENTURE!'
Apr 2021
21.4.'21(Wed.) We went in an air-conditioned 'All Terrain' Vehicle with very comfortable seats. We were given 'headsets' to listen to very interesting and informative commentaries from Ewan (our Driver) and also pre-recorded commentaries about interesting places and info.
When we arrived in Glenorchy we had just under 2 hours to do what we wanted. While the others stayed in the village, I did the 'Glenorchy Lagoon Boardwalk' on the 'Southern Circuit' of the Glenorchy Walkway. It was 3.2km and took 1 and a half hours. Great scenery, easy walking, with good 'directional'' signs. I loved it all, and I would thoroughly recommend this 'Special' to Locals and Visitors alike. You won't regret it! Mary Joyce Q'T., N.Z.

Amazing scenery and hospitality
Apr 2021
I had a great time on this tour of Glenorchy. The driver Ewan seamlessly integrated his commentary with the recorded commentary which plays based on your satellite location to ensure you're in the right spot - very cool. The transport was a new, slick Mercedes van that was very comfortable. This tour is extremely scenic - you get amazing views of the lake both ways, and plenty of time to spend in Glenorchy and take photos.

This company earns extra points in my eyes as they still conducted the tour even without a minimum number of people, which most activities don't do. I also appreciated that the historical facts that were told were not whitewashed and recognised the realities of the immigrant Chinese labourers and native Maori people.

Prior to booking, I got swift answers to my queries. Highly recommend this company and wish them lots of success in future!

Glenorchy Kiwi Special 4 hr Tour for $49 offered good value for visitors wanting to simply enjoy the magnificent scenery along Lake Wakatipu and 2 hours at leisure in Glenorchy. The 4WD luxury vehicle with glass roof was extremely comfortable and our driver MORGAN was very accommodating and even dropped us at our hotel at the end of the tour.
