We had a great time 4 wheeling with Heidi through the West Wanaka Station. Great views of the Lake, the mountains and the ranching operations.

We had a personal and warm experience on this tour. Guide and driver was informative, kind,humorous, and his attention to detail was exceptional ( I guess because of his former police career). We really enjoyed our afternoon. A lot of time was spent explaining the old farm site and history of the area. Also a lot of information about the current farm!! Stopped for the deer and sheep. Coffee on the hillside. Great value. We started trip at 01:30 pm and home at 6:30 pm.
Really enjoyed our afternoon. We also enjoyed the opportunity for a stroll on the hill alone. Thank you.

Thank Carrie L

What a GREAT day with Mark and his tour of the sheep farm and area. We were able to see a live sheep farm and the dogs herding the sheep. But, from there we went up and up and the views at the top were amazing and breath taking. Mark was a great guide and his love of what he was doing shone through all through our adventure. Our trip was followed with the Shotover jets which was coordinated well between these two groups. Lunch was provided, too. HIGHLY recommend.

II have to say your group was very special, to have a large group of friends traveling together always makes our job easier especially when you all appreciate the sheer beauty of our country as much as we do. We were lucky to see the sheep being shorn too - only happens twice a year!!! And to add the WANAKA RIVER JOURNEYS jet boat adventure at the end after a riverside picnic was a perfect addition!! Thanks so much for your feed back I really appreciate it!! Regards Mark Orbell

We went out with Heidi who was an excellent guide and gave us a wonderful afternoon up in the hills around Wanaka. She drove carefully and was always thoughtful to our needs and interests. We very much enjoyed her company and we would thoroughly recommend Ridgeline.

What I did not appreciate was having my other tour choices whilst in Wanaka criticised and quite sharply so by Heidi. In the morning we had taken a wonderful boat trip with Adventure Wanaka. Heidi is a freelance and has some sort of relationship with Adventure Wanaka's competitors. We were told in no uncertain terms that the other operator "Chris" ( who came over to speak with Heidi at one point when we were in Wanaka) was much better and that we would have been much happier if we had gone out with him. This was very unprofessional as Heidi had no idea what we had done or whether we had a good time. We had seen Chris in his trip in the morning with some very elderly US guests and we would certainly not have been happy tagging along with them!! More professionalism needed I think. Tour operators need to be working together to build the profile of brand Wanaka rather than having petty squabbles amongst themselves. It is such a lovely place and the cake is big enough for everyone and growing.
