Wine Tour fit for a Hens do!
Apr 2021
I was part of a group of ladies who did a wine tour for a hens afternoon with Altitude Wine Tours and the whole experience from woah to go was faultless. It was a seamless collection at our different hotels, through to a lovely wine tasting where Altitude had thought of everything. I couldn't recommend them highly enough - it was my second experience with them (also did a Milford Tour) so I know I can count on them for a good time

Great All Round Tour & Day Out
May 2021 • Friends
Everything about the day was great including the cheese sampling stop over in Arrowtown. The different types of vineyards were a good introduction to the local area & how they go about what they do. Having little knowledge of wine & more of a beer participant I was impressed by the knowledge & passion to all those that we met & we all enjoyed sampling the different types of local wines. Alia our knowledgeable, very pleasant & ‘designated’ driver certainly made our trip something to remember. None of our group had been on a wine tour before & this won’t be our last. Highly recommend Altitude👌

Hen's Party
Apr 2021
I contacted Altitude Wine Tours as I had an idea about wanting to organise a Hen's evening at a Queenstown winery. Heidi took my vague idea and turned it into a perfectly thought out evening, including taking care of all the transport logistics and arranging a beautiful private space for our celebrations. Heidi was a friendly, knowledgeable and lively host - the group had a fabulous time with great food and wine. Would 100% recommend Altitude Wine Tours to anyone spending time in the area!

What an awesome day!

Part of a small group, our guide Tania was exactly the fun and knowledgeable host we had hoped for. We visited 4 awesome wineries and enjoyed all of the offerings. Lunch was great and more than enough to keep us going. Bottle prices on site were very reasonable and samples were plentiful.

Thanks Tania and Altitude tours for an awesome experience, would recommend to anyone.

Great trip.
Nov 2020 • Friends
We had the best experience on the wine sampler. The bus was clean and flash. There was great music in the trip. The wineries were great with a wide selection of local wines to sample. Our tour leader Megan was amazing, so lovely, knowledgeable and down to earth. Highly recommend this tour for anyone wanting to experience the local central Otago wines.

Enjoyable and informative tour
Dec 2020
Had really enjoyable 5 hr Wine Sampler tasting tour with four friends while in Queenstown. Altitude were great and picked us up virtually outside our hotel.
Alia, our driver and host, was informative and delightful. Lovely Mercedes van with short videos were fun and informative. We visited Gibbston Valley and the famous wine cave.
Ivonne at Valli wines, Kinross did a fabulous tasting for us where we also shared a delicious platter for lunch.
We sampled wines from Coal Pit, Hawkshead, Kinross valley and Wild Irishman wineries.
The mulled wine sample from Mt. Rosa Wines, "The Changer", was delicious and just had to get some of the Brennan Wines "Not Port" and Pinot Noir which were amazing!
A great trip for scenery, points of interest of the area and great wine!
Definitley a must do when in Queenstown, highly recommended.
