In addition to being able to see/feed/walk/pet alpacas, we got to learn so much about them. I will definitely go back soon for more.

To have our guided tour highly recommended by a guest is very encouraging for us and for future guests wondering if they'll enjoy themselves with our alpacas. The astonishing history of alpacas is something that is not widely known and makes an interesting narration. That,...More

Alpacas have outnumbered llamas in NZ for decades now but it is still commonplace for people to be unsure what the difference is. This is just one small camelid fact we frequently share with our visitors. Good value for money is what we strive to...More

Thanks for your review, and the 5/5 ranking. Your review answers a lot of questions for those considering booking a tour with us - thanks!

Reviewed 28 April 2018

The tour was really informative as we got to know lots more about alpacas and what happened hundred of years back. It was really fun as we could walk and take photos close-up with the alpaca. Thank You so much for the amazing tour.
