Absolute Paradise!

Highly recommended! Being my second time to Glenorchy, first time drive by myself which is soooo difficult when I gets the off-road area. Absolutely wise to Use 4WD instead of normal car to go in there plus This truck / bus is so cool. Our driver is very nice, being informative so I can see many different things compare to the first time I went by myself. And lots of important photo spots! It also has Commentary on board which got different languages versions and it suits both me and my non-English speaking mother! This trip even has a nice warm afternoon tea provided :) Animal experience is the other reason I choose this trip, not too many trip do both Glenorchy and animal experience. I just love the animal experience there! All in all, very professional trip, highly recommended.! and we thank you MR U for that lovely afternoon with me and my mother!

Best thing to do in Queenstown!!

This tour is absolutely amazing! Nice long tour, Ewan our guide was super helpful, friendly and funny. This tour deserves 10 out of 5 stars. Entire scenery was incredible! Couldn’t stop gawking!

Thank-you for your comments Sebastian. Being immersed in our commentary is quite amazing, with sound, music and voice, transporting you to another time and place, hearing the Maori and European history coming alive is quite beautiful. Glad that we have added to your enjoyment of New Zealand. Team Queenstown Expeditions
