We had the best guide!! He had so much enthusiasm and absolutely loves what he does. A fun filled half day. We saw the back drops of scenes used in filming the LOTR films, drove on an old gold mining road, drove on an old one lane gold mining equipment road through the mountains, panned for gold, and had morning tea riverside. We learned so much! Best half day tour of our month long trip.
The entire experience was wonderful, as it always has been. It was my 8th trip on this historic steamship & apart from some severe wind along the southern shore heading into Walter Peak station, which was well handled by the captain, everything was exceptional.
We really enjoyed this tour. Our tour guide, Joel, was friendly and funny. It was informative and complete with visual aids from the movie. And we were allowed to go where other tour companies weren't allowed to go, which was a plus. Highly recommend.
We loved it! Especially seeing the team working hard stoking the fire with coal. Next time we'll book the longer package and enjoy time at Walters Peak Station.
Super cruise on an authentic vessel. The captain gave a very informative resume`
