Our day began with being picked up in central Christchurch at 8.30 travelling over the Canterbury plains to Springfield and onto Mt Torlesse and Rubicon Stations for the 4x4 adventure followed by jet boating. After lunch we made our way to Arthurs Pass where we boarded the Tranzalpine Train where Mark collected us to take us home. So this was an excellent day, filled with laughter and excitement. Mark was very knowledgeable and easy going. Highly recommend.

A fantastic tour that takes you into some of the best scenery in New Zealand as well as learning about different aspects of lord of rings . Even if you are not a big fan of the movie , I would certainly recommend this experience for the beauty and wilderness .

This tour is the best tour I’ve ever been on and worth every cent I’ve paid (and more!). I recommend this to anyone, LOTR fan or not. The scenery was breathtaking and beyond this world; no photo can do justice. The tour was also well-run, with a very professional, thoughtful, and knowledgable guide. Put this on your must-do list in your next trip around New Zealand.

We had an amazing day with Barry in the tour. We were the only two pick ups so we had our own wee private excursion in the land rover. The day went with clockwork and there was a contingency plan if the boat for whale watching wasn't going. We loved spending time with Barry listening to his stories. His knowledge of the area is immense and it was so interesting to hear the history as we travelled through the stunning countryside. The whale watching was something else. It is clear Barry is well thought of in the community. He seemed to know everyone and received a warm welcome at the stop offs and the other tour operators. He took us to the best local place for lunch and knew the best places for good photos. I was sorry it was Barry's last day but I hope he enjoyed our company as much as we enjoyed his. Best of luck for the future.

This was one of our favourite tours on our trip in New Zealand. Maria was our fantastic tour guide, full of interesting knowledge and kept the small group of us entertained throughout, especially during our long drive from Christchurch. She looked after us well and the lunch was tasty! The tour itself was well organised and spots we were taken to were beautiful. I definitely recommend hassle back tours.
