We took the Ridgeline tour with Alan Richardson as our guide. It was great. The views can't be had anywhere else and Alan took extra time to describe the area and provided a local insite we could not have had otherwise. (I hope he got the tip we left for him at the fairground

Thanks for this amazing review. Neil is new to us this season so to get this response is awesome. He comes from a farming background and loves nothing more than a good chat...especially high in the mountains over a freshly brewed coffee!! He is over the moon to get a glowing review like this. Thank you again for taking the time to write.

We traveled by 4 wheel car up some amazing paths to ridgelines overlooking the mountains and the lake. Gorgeous views. Saw sheep sheering and passed by many herds of sheep, cows and even some deer. Well run trip and worth the time and cost.
