Great for families or adults who are big kids at heart. The rest of my tour group did the evening meal buffet ride and were fair jealous when they saw I had got to meet all the animals on my afternoon trip. The animals all come running down to meet you as they know there is food about. You can hand feed them - and get slobbered on - or just watch. Particularly liked that they had Isla, a female highland cow and not just the males and the sheep with a mullet style trim was fun.
Afternoon tea was a simple affair of hot or cold drinks and a variety of cakes. A plate was even put out for the birds to help themselves which was lovely.
The sheep shearing is a must see if you are in New Zealand and we got a good demonstration here. Very knowledgeable and genuinely interested staff.
Not so sure about the piano player on the steamer (!) but a lovely afternoon out.
