A Recent Review of this tour

A terrific introduction to Queenstown and the surrounding area! In 2 days with Claudie, we explored Lord of the Ring filming sites, beautiful parks, beautiful lakes, Glenorchy, wonderful coffee shops and the most wonderful winery in Alexandra. Claudie is clearly an expert in all things Queenstown and New Zealand and is so personable that we immediately felt like long lost friends. She was very flexible with our interests and even helped us with places to see on the remainder of our trip. We'll be back.
