Had a wonderful day with Wayne touring to Wanaka, Cromwell, Cardrona and Arrowtown and many interesting stops along the way to take in the sights and for photo opportunities. We stopped for morning tea which is included in the tour, at a great little place in Cromwell. We stopped for a while at Wanaka, then on to Cardrona and the historic pub which you just have to visit! It is a fantastic watering hole and we were shouted a beverage at this stop too!

Arrowtown is an historic mining town, now a very up market residential town. Here you can pan for gold in the river, see the restored Chinese miner's camp and learn a bit of their history. Can recommend the Bakery!

These tours carry only a small group, on this one max of 11 but we were five in our tour, which made for a great day.

Our guide Wayne was very friendly and entertaining, providing a great commentary of the places we visited. As we Aussies say, he is a great bloke!

I would highly recommend Wayne and his tours to anyone visiting Queenstown. They will pick you up and drop you off at your accommodation which is very convenient.

Wayne did an excellent job of not only providing several options of local beer tasting, but also a memorable sight seeing tour of the Queenstown, Arrowtown and Wanaka areas. The timing between stopping at brew houses / bars and scenic areas was spot on - perfect mix. Would recommend this tour to anyone who has a half day to spare in the Queenstown area. - Jeremy & Julia - Sept 2016

Few services can get a rating of 10/10 but what we received from Kathy and Wayne certainly was a 10/10. Organised by email before we left home, Kathy and Wayne made sure that we would have a memorable day. Wayne's local knowledge, his sense of humour (bad) and care for his clientele made the scenic tour provided an absolute delight. We saw more that we thought we would see. The cost for such a personal service was very reasonable and we wholeheartedly recommend them. Thank you Wayne and Kathy for a great day.

I want to thank you Mr. Wayne for making our trip to Queenstown last Sept 20, 2016 an unforgettable one. We booked with this new family owned tours. The tour really turned out to be great eventhough the original booking was cancelled due to some problem with their vehicle. Mr. Wayne was kind enough to offer us to continue with our tour in Lake Wanaka and Arrowtown consecutively. He picked us up in Base 10 minutes ahead of time and we head on to Lake Wanaka which is mindblowing beautiful. Arrowtown was a charm in it's own, and one must not miss out on the experience.The tour felt very personalized as we were only 5 in the van, hence we were able to learn a lot about the two places, being local, he surely knows the two places well. I would definitely recommend Mr. Wayne's services if I have friends coming over for a holiday in Queenstown.
