The tour was extremely informative, interesting and fun - well worth the money and something exciting and different to do for an afternoon!
We were very impressed with the guide we had as she was full of information and went at a good pace for everyone to keep up. It was interesting to learn all about the Alpacas' history, were they came from and how they got to New Zealand.
I liked that we were given the opportunity to take our time and weren't made to feel rushed.
They even took pictures of everyone throughout the tour and then shared them on Facebook, which I thought was a really nice touch and appreciated that you didn't have to pay extra for this.
Getting to feed, pat and walk the Alpacas were definitely the highlights!

Thoroughly enjoyable and informative. Particularly liked the hands-on experience and mingling with the alpacas.

You are not alone! It is pretty safe to say the hands-on experience getting up close and personal to our alpacas on one of our guided tours ranks very highly with our visitors. Thanks so much for your 5/5!

The tour was a lot of fun, hands-on and very informative! While learning about alpaca farming practises and also alpaca history, we got to feed the friendly female alpacas and then got to take the males for a walk. Afterwards, we got to visit the lovely little gift shop that's on site. The ladies that ran the tour were very friendly, professional and passionate about their alpacas. It was a great experience and is fun for all ages.

Really loved the experience! Could have easily spent more time there just chatting to the Alpacas. Really appreciated all that I learned today too!
