What people are saying about Otago

The tour was amazing, it was raining in the morning and we nearly cancelled instead we bought ponchos because my 7 year old thought it would be even more fun and the weather turned out for us we laughed the whole time going through puddles and the views were incredible. Our tour guide was fantastic told us plenty of facts and showed us everything. Would definitely do again

Unfortunately we didn’t get to do UTV due to mechanical issues and bad weather. However we ended up going out in the defender with an awesome guide who took us on an epic 4WD track with experiences like arrow town and gold panning thrown in. He was informative, fun and so knowledgeable about the area! Couldn’t recommend him as a guide more!

It was such a fun experience - my partner and I had a blast! The team guiding us were very down to earth, they were knowledgeable and had our safety as priority, whilst still letting us have a good go on the quads! Would definitely do again :)

The trip was excellent, Charlie was so informative and fun. A great host. The scenery was beautiful and the morning tea was the best! Fresh cherries and apricots straight from the farm. Highly recommend the tour.

BEST EXPERIENCE EVER!! I 100% recommend quad biking if you get a chance, you can do it solo or with friends/couples. You ride all the way up a mountain and get the best view of Queenstown.
