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

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.

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.
