Fabulous Trip with George Scott!
Aside from breathtaking views of the area and of a variety of animals, our tour guide, George Scott was outstanding! As a retired sheep and deer "farmer" himself, his knowledge of the local farming was phenomenal, not to mention how patient he was with our photography requests for stops. Tea at the top of the mountain will be forever etched in our minds! As a world traveler, I can honestly say this one was an extraordinary experience. Our thanks to Ridgeline and to George!

A fantastic day!
Nov 2018 • Friends
The morning consisted of a boat trip to Mou Waho, an island and nature reserve. We climbed to the highest spot for spectacular views. Our guide was very passionate about the flora and fauna and he made it a fun day.
In the afternoon Mike took us in his 4WD to the Wanaka Station high country. He was an excellent and skilled driver who provided lots of interesting facts and insights. The views were incredible, This white knuckle drive is not for the faint of heart. We loved it!

Wonderful tour
We had a wonderful tour a month ago with a 4wd around lake wanaka, up the hills and around the farmland. Our guide was George Scott, a former farmer, who explained everything perfectly. We visited beautiful sights, great stories from George who is a very good and friendly guide. Highly recommended when around wanaka

Our Wild Hills Safari is so much more than a farm tour, its an educational alpine 4WD adventure into the wild mountains surrounding Lake Wanaka. Thanks for your very kind comments.
