You have to visit here if you are near Fairlie!! We got up close and personal with the alpacas and llamas, feeding them and getting to see their amazing personalities! We were so lucky because there were heaps of babies as well. They are so cute and soft, it was such an unreal experience to interact with these magnificent animals. Also, the host Jill was so lovely and passionate and we learned so much about them. I will definitely come back and I highly recommend this tour!

Amazing, fun-filled tour for a great price! We arrived at midday and a boy cria was just born 3 hours prior, as we were the first on the farm we were able to name him! A great personal touch from the owners. Highly recommend the stop for anyone travelling through Fairly.

We thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience - being in amongst these gentle and cute animals. Hand feeding was the highlight and Jill's extensive knowledge of each alpaca she knew by name. Plus a few Llama's which are much larger and have banana shaped ears so now I know the difference. It was excellent to watch how the alpaca's interacted with each other and some enjoying wading in the stream while others enjoyed a dust bath. If you're passing through Fairlie this is worth the visit.

We popped in to take a look at the shop, ended up having a nice chat with the owner, purchased some really nice products and booked a tour, to which Steve our guide took us around the farm and taught us alot about Alpaca's and Llama's, we had a really fun interactive time and Steve was great with our children. Highly recommend popping in.

A truly wonderful experience. The warmth and intelligence of these amazing animals was so beautifully conveyed to us by Steve, our guide, we felt like we were almost part of their special family by the end of the hour. Would love to come back. Excellent value and highly recommended.

This was one of my favorite things we did in NZ. Steve was a great guide and the alpacas were funny, cute, sweet and each had their own personalities. The llamas were an added bonus. If you’re an animal lover do not skip out if you happen to be nearby. Thanks Steve!
