Enjoyed the tour. It was a bit cloudy though so we didn't see the best view of the so-called "million dollar view". I really like the dressing up as LOTR characters.
If it is adventure you’re looking for I would advise AGAINST this tour. Although the website advertises it caters for beginners through to experts, what it should say is it’s designed for people who have never seen a quad bike before or know what one is. It consisted of meandering along a wide gravel path between 20-30km p/h in compulsory full riding gear, (very hot if sun is out) with regular stops. The guides we had (Lewis and Jamie) were friendly and the views from the top were pretty good however we feel we didn’t get anything like what was advertised.
We had two tour guides both were fantastic ! 23 got to see so much! Stunning place!
We had such an amazing tour with these guys. We did the Wakatipu basin tour mainly to see the Lord of the Rings locations but would also recommend just for the scenery and beautiful lookout points. Bear in mind you don't visit many LOTR locations in person but rather view them from afar and see where certain scenes would have happened. Totally amazing though. Our guide/driver Renato was awesome, super enthusiastic, passionate and happy to answer all my 101 questions. The off-road part and the river crossings were great and gave us the opportunity to see areas we otherwise wouldn't get a chance to see. Definitely worth the money and definitely would recommend if you get the chance.
Nothing special about the overly expensive tour. Scenery is amazing no doubt, but the drive can be done yourself. They make it sound so dangerous so you feel like going with them is the only option. Self drive is definitely doable with some planning and careful driving.
