    Meeting place was at Info and Snow, Ilya was our tour guide and the driver of the 4x4 vehicle for Nomad Safaris. He was very accommodating and knowledgeable regarding Queenstown. He was a good driver too! He took as many pictures as he can whenever we has the chance to stop-over. We also had our morning tea in Arrowtown and he even taught us how to do gold-panning. The 4x4 driving at Arrowtown river was amazing! Our next stop was at Shotover Jet. All I can say is, it was kne hell-of-a-kind ride! The driver was very professional and absolutely skilled when handling the boat! Essential queenstown adventures is very fun, so for those who experience vertigo/dizziness like me, make sure you take your meds!

What To Expect

Enjoy a three hour action filled experience with two thrilling activities combined into one day! Start your adventures with a morning or afternoon hotel pick up. You will be taken to the activity site and begin your Nomad Safaris 4WD off road tour. You will explore the abandoned gold mining area of Arrow River and even do some gold panning yourself! You will also witness some filming locations used in the hugely successful trilogy, The Lord of the Rings. After your rugged road four wheel drive, you will embark on an exhilarating jet boat journey through the narrow canyons of Shotover River. Remember to hold on tight for a full 360 degree spin! With either a morning or afternoon tea included, you will have enough energy to complete both adventures. At the end of your experiences, you will be whisked back to your hotel.

    first of all, there was a miscommunication on the day of event, we waited at the pick up place waiting to be picked up for one hour but nobody actually came and pick us up. I was kinda pissed off because i actually tried to confirm with KLOOK team before i travel to NZ and had been keeping in touch with them from throughout my whole trip and yet there is still no confirmed answer on the actual event date. We had to choice but to try our luck by waiting at the desired pick up place and hoping that they will actually come and pick us up. And guess what, in the end nobody come. Tried to call KLOOK, nobody pick up. Tried to email them, they took forever to reply. In the end, i have no choice but to walk all the way to the local operator and asked what was the problem, they said that KLOOK placed the booking date as next day! Im like what and showed them my booking voucher, and yes my booking was absolutely right just that KLOOK misplaced it. I immediately asked for refund because about 2 hours wasted because of walking here and there, but they dont allow any refund and asked me to wait for another half an hour they will send someone else to pick us up. We had no choice but to wait again, despite all these unhappy events, I still wanna say that this whole activity is freaking awesome, worth the money and it is definitely a once in a lifetime memory. I enjoyed it so much, it would had been perfect if the miscommunication didnt take place.

    It was amazing experience, wonderful site seen.....we all spend most memorable time altogether, please go there once in a life time.

    The four-wheel drive experience is stimulating. The gold rush is only a 15-minute stay, but there is enough experience, but the driver also took us to the snowy mountain to see it (just a few days before it snowed), the speedboat feels OK.

    It’s fun! It’s so exciting to take a four-wheel drive buggy, and you’ll get a good view along the way. Jet speedboat is fun!

    Jet board is very stimulating and driving is very interesting Four-wheel drive will go to the general tourists less to go but the scenery is also a lot of places to pay attention to the autumn insects

    Originally just holding the idea of ​​ride ride, I did not expect the experience of four-wheel drive let me admiration, really is climbing + wading, drove the car to the top of the mountain, into the valley, allowing you to experience the formation of the ice age terrain! ! And then take you to dig gold town, driving a four-wheel drive across the valley, wading and finally let you experience the fun of dig gold! ! ! Jet boats do not need to describe it! Look at the story, is to enjoy the thrill of speed! Let you experience the excitement of other countries can not stimulate the excitement! ! !
