We booked the 4 hour 4WD Wakatipu LOTR tour. It was totally fantastic. Darryl, our guide, knew his LOTR stuff but more than that, being a local, he had vast amounts of knowledge over the area which he was happy to share with us. We were so lucky, in that we were the only two on this tour so we had personal service! We learnt a huge amount about the area, most of which was new to me despite being from the South Island. And the views and landscape were absolutely unbelievably beautiful. Darryl showed us how to pan for gold (not his fault that we were pretty useless at it) and his driving skills through the river and down Skippers Canyon made the trip so much fun.
Definitely the best tour I have ever been on. Would highly recommend to anyone looking to learn more about the Queenstown area and wanting to see some beautiful scenery. Don't have to be a massive LOTR a fan to enjoy this tour. There is so much more interesting information to learn.
