Beautiful scenery & alpacas!

I really enjoyed this tour and Dave our tour guide/driver was lovely. The scenery is incredible and there were so many gorgeous lambs everywhere. I really enjoyed the farm stop too. Being able to pet and feed all the animals was great; they were all so friendly and not scared. I particularly enjoyed stroking the lambs and seeing the alpacas against the backdrop of the snow-capped mountains. Free tea and scones was great too. I only wish there was more time and more photo stops- so maybe I should have taken an all day tour, to feel less rushed.

The Grand Tour with the complete package!

It was a lovely experience. The views were just grand. The tour did not disappoint. The truck we rode on was especially awesome with all the gadgets! It was really a 360 degree view of the entire place as you travel. Every corner was covered so you get a completely lovely view of everything you passed by. There were also very interesting commentaries/stories on our individual headphones throughout the whole journey about the history of New Zealand, which I have not heard of in our other tours during this trip. Everything was very organized. Then our guide prepared for us a lovely meal of scones and coffee/tea in the farm. It was the complete package. 👍
