Reviewed 15 March 2017

I went on a Lord of the Rings 4 x 4 safari tour. It was brilliant. The tour drivers were lovely and it was such good fun. Would do it again if I ever get back to Queenstown.

“Absolutely brilliant”
Reviewed 15 March 2017

Wee booked the whole day safari to the LOTR locations in Glenorchy/Paradise and beyond plus Sikpper Canyon etc., but it was o much more than just LOTR. Andre, our guide, was unbelievably knowledgable about the whole area, starting with the geological background of how the area came to look how it looks right down to history like the gold rush etc.
The 8 hours went in no time and we got to see so many amazing things and learnt so much - apart from the 300 (!) amazing photos we took on that tour. It's not cheap, but it is absolutetly worth it. Thank you, Andre, it was fantastic!

We had so much fun on our quads with this company. Plenty of seat time and separate groups for different skill levels with lots of individual attention. Beautiful scenery included along side the river as well....highly recommended.

“A true adventure safari packed with thrilling 4WD river crossings”
Reviewed 12 March 2017

It was like a private tour ,with just 4 people. A great overview of the diverse scenery of the Queenstown/Arrowhead area but superb for someone who wants to discover Lord of the Rings filming locations. Philip was our knowledgeable and pleasant guide with extra facts ;like the Skippers track is in the top ten worst roads in the world to drive on!
We loved very minute, a truly amazing unforgettable time C and J ,Barnsley, England
