Hello! Thanks so much for leaving us this great review. Congrats on your anniversary- so glad o hear you chose to celebrate your day with us! Justin is a fantastic driver and guide and so full of local facts and knowledge. The Queenstown LOTR trip is such a great trip with river crossing, and off roading, gold panning, and LOTR. So glad you enjoyed it, and we hope to see you again soon, maybe next time to Macetown!
