Make sure to take lots of photos of this scenic region!

Paradise Found!

Great half-day tour to Glenorchy and Paradise! Definitely worth taking, especially if you have limited time in the area, like I did...To start with, I really appreciated the fact that even if I was the only person with a booking for that specific date, the company did not cancel but was happy to run the tour for me.I had this huge 4WD bus all for myself, and also the luxury of taking as much time as I wanted in several stops along the way! The track/bus was amazing, super comfortable with a glass roof and a screen through which you could enjoy the scenery from the driver's seat! On top of that, a great narration about the area offered both through head-phones, but also by the driver!Greg, the driver, was very flexible, friendly and put all the attention he could so that I would enjoy the tour to the maximum. The visit in the local farm was also a plus, with owners being so close and personal. And last but not least, the snack Greg prepared was absolutely delicious!I cannot give anything less than 5 for this tour!

Really nice tour with nice commentaries and staff.The landscape is just stunning !I only wished we stopped a little more often for pictures (only one stop on the road from Queensto Glenorchy, but you get a few more afterwards)

Kia Ora! We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the trip and got some wonderful pictures once we got you to Paradise! Unfortunately there is only one safe spot to stop on the road to Glenorchy, but the "Million Dollar View" from that spot truly makes up for it. Thank you for supporting our small family run business and we hope you have a wonderful day! Kindest Regards, The Team @Queenstown Expeditions
