Wellington Midori Sisters awesome adventure with Wayne!
Jan 2021
What we love about it? EVERYTHING! From the time we were picked up and dropped off at the airport! Best camera shots and awesome historical stories that we felt the Soul of the towns not just the sceneries!
Wayne Hanson made us all feel at home & part of the locals!
Best part? Wayne made awesome suggestions on adjusting our itinerary based on what was best to handle what we were challenged with. On our first day the road to Wanaka was closed due to a horrible accident. We had a great time to Cromwell Cherry Picking and Arrowtown!
Wayne always gives us an overview of what to expect, time we have for each spots yet flexible & never ever felt hurried! Wayne has witty sense of humour and was so personable that we felt he is a brother showing us a great time within two days! Most of all Wayne taught us a lot different posing shots! And takes group pictures!
Best advise? Trust & Respect & be open minded! your guide is your experts! Wayne advised us the best place to eat! Great value! We had freedom to go wherever & were opened minded to try local food.
Note: Kiwis are truly kind & honest, they recommend places to shop and eat based on their expert knowledge & experience! Unlike overseas, they do not benefit for recommending these areas, they don’t get commissions as such! They just want to help their own locals & truly want to give you the chance to try locals! It’s still your choice.
Thank you so so much Wayne Hanson! We will be back! and we can’t stop raving about how you truly took cared of us! 7 noisy loud women! 😜 Thank you so so much for our “poses”!!! & awesome pictures!!! 🙏🥰🙏🥰

One of the best tours in the area of a beautiful region! Kathy is a super guide, had a great day out with some decent time allowed to stop in places too, which is always much nicer than being whisked in and out all day. Would highly recommend!

Kathy was awesome, even though we had a slight hiccup with the crowne range being closed she navigated the situation very professionally. Fantastic service, meets our international service expectations. She truly is the definition of kiwi spirit, went out of her way to entertain our lotr fan.We will back for the private tour, without the boys, have a nice girls trip out to the snow.

Fabulous tour & no hesitation in recommending it. Excellent value for money & our guide, Wayne, was simply awesome. Soooo much knowledge & super friendly. They also do private tours that I'd highly recommend. Go with this company & I'm sure you won't have any regrets. Heading back to Queenstown in winter & will definitely book with these guys again. Thank you Wayne for a spectacular day!!!! Lee & Jorja 👍

Absolutely remarkable!
Dec 2019
Kathy is an incredible guide. We stopped at every awesome photo spot, learned a ton and had a great day- even in the rain. The day flew by and we got to see so much. The van was comfortable, the commentary was interesting and delivered so well. Every stop was well thought out and there was something for everyone on the trip. Thanks Kathy for an awesome day exploring our own backyard!

Truly Remarkable
Took this tour from Queenstown and found it to be truly remarkable. The driver/guide/owner was knowledgeable, informative, interactive and friendly. The short stops included at certain spots were very thoughtful. The longer stops in Wanaka and Arrowtown were fabulous. Would certainly very highly recommend this tour company to any traveler in Queenstown.

Remarkable service
We did a tour today with Wayne from Queenstown to Wanaka and Arrowtown.
A full day packed with excellent local knowledge, great food and advise.
Left my jacket in the vehicle and they made sure it was returned before our early morning flight the next morning.
Can't thank them enough, highly recommend them.

Wonderful
Oct 2019
This was such a great tour! The coach was comfortable and Wayne, our guide, had much knowledge of New Zealand and all the places we went to. He was easy to understand and I did not feel overwhelmed with information and history. There was a good mixture of short, medium and longer stops and Wayne is really good at helping you get the best photos. I would reccomend doing this tour early in your stay as you also get great tips of restaurants, shops and any other thing you might wonder about.

I highly reccomend this. As Nike would say; Just do it!
