Awesome scenic drive

Even though the weather was not at its best we had an enjoyable drive thanks to our host Erik who was certainly very friendly and knowledgeable and off course entertaining with his jokes Perhaps I should have seen Lord of the rings again before going on the tour so I could relate to where the scenes were shot...our afternoon tea was pleasant and we still managed to capture some very beautiful photos...overall a lovely afternoon out

Total waste of time & miney

The tour is highly overrated and misguiding. We paid 240$ for the scenic views which were not even spectacular. Queenstown itself is more scenic than the spots we visited on this tour. I cannot even fathom why they would design such a tour. None of the spots held any interest for any of us. Only plus point being that the van was a luxury van being Mercedes class and our guide was quite an enthusiast.
