There were lots of stops to take photos. The ginger beer at Cardona pub was excellent. I would recommend this tour whole heartedly.

This tour of Arrowtown and Wanaka was amazing and the scenery stunning. Wayne was our tour operator and he was lots of fun and very informative. You were never rushed so you were able to take plenty of photo's. I had a front seat so was able to video everything perfectly. The weather was perfect and so made the trip even more pleasurable. The famous Wanaka tree we visited was something I always wanted to see. We had our lunch at The Big Fig Wanaka which Wayne had recommended and he wasn't wrong as the food was excellent. Arrowtown is a beautiful place to visit and to see the restored huts that the Chinese gold miners lived in. The museum is a must visit giving you an incite into what conditions were like for the miners. I can highly recommend this tour to everyone.

Arrowtown - Wanaka Tour
Nov 2020 • Couples
My husband and I had a lovely day out yesterday with Kathy who operates Remarkable Scenic Tours. Our tour took us to Cardrona where we stopped for a drink and a tour of the pub, then on to Wanaka where we walked along the lake to the Wanaka tree after which we were given free time to explore. Our next time stop was in Arrowtown where we were given more free time to explore and enjoy the surroundings. What we valued most about our tour, besides the stunning landscape, was the interesting and informative commentary. We learnt all about the history of the areas we were visiting, with lots of interesting fun facts that made the tour more meaningful. There were only 3 of us on the tour which made for a lovely intimate experience as we all got to know each other. Multiple stops for photo ops and to appreciate the views just made it more perfect. Thanks Kathy, we will be back to tour with you again.

My wife and I had a wonderful experience of Arrowtown and Wanaka Tour from Queenstown. Kathy was an excellent Guide who took great interest in explaining and showing us the many beautiful sites in Wanaka such as the famous tree, Lavender farm, Beautiful mountain ranges, Waterfalls etc. In Arrowtown we were shown the Gold mining village and Historic Chinese village settlement . We had plenty of photo opportunities and Kathy our tour guide was very helpful with hints for great photos and she was very knowledgeable about the history of each location which we visited. Highly recommended! Thanks Kathy for the great trip

A wonderful one day tour
My mum and I joined this tour through Trip Advisor. Though it was not my mum’s first time to Lake Wanaka, there were attractions that she hadn’t been to before this trip. We love all attractions and our guide is so friendly and helpful. Will definitely recommend it to others who are interested in Lake Wanaka and want to commute between Lake Wanaka and Queenstown within a day.
