    A great way to spend an afternoon in Wanaka. Our guide Steve was amazing, passion for the animals, the area and also a great driver. He even went well overtime on the trip as there was a couple of additional things he wanted to show us. The kids loved feeding the animals and

    The 4WD tour has been the best thing we had in Wanaka in our 8 days visit. Allen was our driver~guide over a private property of 20,000+ acres of mountains and valleys. He was a real gentleman. The view from the top of the mountains was breathtaking. This is a must-do thing for

    Wow, the best thing you did in Wanaka !! Thanks so much for this glowing review. We are so so lucky to have Allan and the rest of our team of expert guides. Most, like Allan are retired with a wealth of local knowledge to share. They love their job and going by your comment it really shows.... Thanks very much for taking the time to write.

    We had a great time in Wanaka end of march. We did the Wild Hills 4WD Safari with George as our driver and tour guide. He gave us lots of information about the private property farmland, how it works, what and how they handle and keep the many thousand cows, sheep and deer.

    We had perfect weather and the perfect guide in John McLean. The ride itself was exhilarating and the scenery magical. John took us to a local farm, talked about life on the farm and explained a lot about life in these parts - very interesting. He provided just enough

    Our travel agent booked this tour for us and I initially thought it sounded a little dull. We had a great 4 hour tour with our driver George. The off roading was great. George has detailed knowledge of the Station (farm), the livestock, history etc. The views from the farm

    The biggest challenge we have is how to describe our Wild Hills Safari, it is almost impossible to get across just how incredible the scenery is, how fascinating the stories of farming life in this alpine landscape are and how far from civilisation we actually take you. So pleased you loved it!!
