    Kia Ora Cindy, Thank you so much for leaving a review, we really appreciate it. The floodings are an unfortunate by-product of living in the Mountains but we are so happy Marcelo was able to show you parts of Queenstown. He is brilliant! We hope the remaining time of your trip was unaffected by the weather.

    What a morning- Lord of the Rings film sites; exhilarating 4WD through crystal clear rivers; amazing views all around Queenstown; a drive up a unsealed road with some amazing hairpin bends; panning for gold and a memorable coffee by the river, aka, Benji’s cafe du Paradise 😍.

    Soap, our tour guide, was a great story teller and passionate about his Maori culture. His knowledge of movie making in the area was an added bonus while we traveled over and through the river to get to points of interest. This was a fantastic way to spend the morning.
