Jenny was our guide and expert driver.
It was cloudy the day of our tour, if we had followed the original itinerary we wouldn't have seen much. Jenny was good as she offered to adapt the tour to consider the weather conditions to ensure we had the best experience possible. You felt like you were in good hands when driving through some of the winding mountain roads that is pretty typical in NZ. She was willing to adapt the roads travelled on depending on how much of a daredevil (or not) you were which was great. We really enjoyed our LOTR experience and was really happy to have booked them.

we did the shotover jet followed by the Nomad Safari. The safari took us off road to places we would not have gone ourselves. Stunning scenery, Joe was a very knowledgeable guide. Went into Arrowtown to do Gold Panning in the river. I would highly recommend this tour

I strongly recommend this one, what an amazing experience! I did the quad bike tour and loved it. The views were insane and the guides (Sam and Joe) were amazing and made the experience so much more enjoyable. They were very friendly and accommodating! Thank you for making my second day in QT so memorable. I think the smile on my face says it all, must do in QT!

All I can say is I hope your drivers are paid extremely well for having the skills to drive that road and of course with the cost of the tour they should be extremely well paid, not a job I would put my hand up for!!!! Jenny (I think was our driver) and she was amazing and probably isn't paid what she is worth!!! I was so scared as a passenger but excited for the adventure and relieved to have some one as skilful and experienced as Jenny. The scenery was stunning and commentary was interesting and informative

Jenny was amazing. Our trip to Macetown was incredible from start to finish. Jenny's knowledge of the area and command of her vehicle was excellent. We had so much fun.

Today we had the pleasure of spending 4 hours with Peter on the Macetown trip. However, this is the 2nd trip we have done with Nomad Safaris in the last 2 years with our first trip being with Rob in to Skippers. This has been the highlight of our trip on both occasions. Peter had great chats and was highly knowledgeable of the area and has amazing driving skills! We will definitely be back for another tour next time we are in Queenstown! This is an amazing experience that you won’t regret!

Great scenery. Guide Jono was excellent with his knowledge stories and driving skills. This was the highlight of our holiday although we didn’t make our fortune panning for gold. We would say to anyone nervous about this trip - just do it. You’ll be pleased you did.

Jono, our guide, was excellent. Really personable and knowledgeable about the tour. Incredible scenery and to hear what the gold miners went through in their pursuit of riches - just incredible.
