“Lovely experience!”
Reviewed 9 January 2014

We had a wonderful experience with Ridgeline Adventures. After another company pulled out of a planned activity, Ridgeline kindly booked us in at the last minute and were very accommodating. We did the 'Romance in the Mountains' tour. Our guide Graeme was friendly and helpful and had a great knowledge of the local area. The drive itself was spectacular and sitting at the top of a mountain with wine and cheese (local which was great) was unforgettable! I loved this experience and would highly recommend it.

“Breathtaking experience”
Reviewed 25 December 2013 via mobile

We were kind of worried when I first book the 4WD tour, wondering if the reviews here had blown the experience out of proportion. And well, the reviews were totally right. We enjoyed every bit of the 4 hours adventure! Furthermore, Mark and John were very passionate about their work. Their enthusiasm and love for the nature rub off on the rest of us. So if you time on your hand and you love to take a good look at wanaka from the top of the 'world'. Go for this tour.

“Awesome experience!”
Reviewed 12 November 2013

This is not a typical 4WD ride! We get to see spectacular scenery and be real up close with sheep, cattle and deer! Graham was awesome with his handling of the vehicle and all of us had a great time! There are lots of opportunities for superb panoramic shots of the beautiful Lake Wanaka and surrounding mountain ranges! You can also pair bundle this as part of Eco Wanaka's "Wanaka Nature Encounter" which included an additional lake boat cruise and guided tour on one of the islands.

“Stunning scenery”
Reviewed 3 November 2013

Thank you to Mark and Heidi at Ridgeline for an amazing afternoon. I had fantastic weather when I did the Wild Hills Safari. The scenery was just beautiful, spring lambs, deers and even got to see the little horse mushroom!! It is really special to see the West side of Wanaka which is not a place where many people get to see. The views looking back across the lake and being so close the mountains was picture perfect with the snow still showing on the tops. Heidi our guide was really informative and knew the history of the area and what to look out for. The tea and biscuit stop was really great and a nice touch to the afternoon. I thoroughly recommend the half day tour as you really get to go off the beaten track. Thanks for a great day!
