You’re planning on visiting Queenstown, you have decided that hiring a car really isn’t worth it and although you’ll see some amazing places within walking distance, you’re keen to explore just that little bit further afield. Get up higher in the mountains or just be able to relax and have a guide to show you the most iconic views of the area.

You also wish that you could have some photographs that look every bit as good as the ones that you’ve seen on social media which first captured your attention and helped you decide to come and travel here in the Southern Lakes.

Our ‘AuthenticAs Queenstown’ adventure is just what you’re looking for. We will collect you from your accommodation in Queenstown in one of our Luxury 4WD Land Rovers and we take you to some breathtakingly beautiful iconic locations.

Along the way, we’ll tell you stories of this place, which always gives you much deeper understanding and respect of where you are.

As part of our bespoke service, tell us your must do’s or always wanteds, we’ll talk before the trip and plan those to be included so when the day of your adventure comes around we can make the most of your precious time.

Some of our favourite locations are; Coronet Peak, Skippers Saddle, Shores of Lake Wakatipu, Moke Lake, Lake Hayes & Arrowtown. The weather always dictates some of our plan, but we know this area well and we’ll be able to easily work out where best to take you in the three hours exploring we have together.

A few details….

As well as being tour guides, we’re professional photographers. This is our major difference and we will work with you to create a beautiful set of images to remind you of the magical time you had visiting the Southern Lakes. This is where we live and photograph often, we know where to go. You really can put those phones down and be present in the moment.

Safety is paramount to us, Qualworx Audited means our vehicles are certified to carry passengers and we’re also licensed to drive passengers with the relevant insurances and health and safety policies firmly in place. We have ten year concessions in place with the Department of Conservation allowing us to explore on DOC land too, and carry Outdoor First Aid Certification.

These aren’t whistle stop tours where you’re in and out of the vehicle as fast as possible. We want you to be able to slow down and relax, to take time to drink in the beauty that will be all around you and learn more about this incredible part of the world which we feel privileged to call home.

We understand that you will want to see your photos as soon as possible so we’ll be getting into the processing quick sharp. That’s what we’re about. Usually by mid morning the next day, often before, you’ll have a handful for social media with a subtle watermark. We will have your full set available via digital download within two weeks.

In terms of numbers, this is almost like saying how long is a piece of string. Rather than hold the shutter down and create hundreds of similar shots we’ve found that we produce a collection of between 70 - 120 images on ’Authentic As Queenstown’

We have great printing deals which we’ll discuss with you, and depending upon how long you’re staying in town we can deliver prints of your favourite shots to your hotel before you leave or arrange to have them shipped anywhere in the world. This we make in our own studio close to Coronet Peak.

If you have any further questions, please and we’ll gladly answer them for you
