A fantastic tour
Feb 2020
This was one of the best tours that we did in our three weeks in New Zealand. We enjoyed the scenic drive and the views overlooking Lake Wakatipu. Seeing bungy jumpers at Gibbston was a laugh and taking a look at the Shotover River and then visiting Arrowtown which was a really pretty place. We enjoyed a latte in the Terra Mia Italian Cafe.

We were driven into the country outside of Arrowtown which was absolutely stunning and then we were taken to the Kinross Winery. This was a lovely experience where we tasted various wines complimented with cheese and biscuits.

To finish the tour we were dropped off to take a water taxi on the lake to take us back to Queenstown where we had a fantastic view of the Remarkables.

A five star experience!

Excellent tour
Feb 2020
We had a brilliant time on our tour with Podge. A small group of 6 meant that we all had the opportunity to ask questions. Podge was a great guide with brilliant knowledge of the area. We had plenty of time at each stop and the wine/cheese tasting was yummy with no pressure to buy which was great.

Queenstown and More!
Feb 2020
Such a fun way to spend the afternoon - getting to know Queenstown and the surrounding area. Our guide was knowledgeable and the van comfortable. From the beautiful sights above the town and on the lake to historic Arrowtown, bungee jumping (viewing) and wine tasting! It was a great balance of activities on a non-rushed tour. Don't miss this simple way to experience more of Queenstown.

great way to see things that could easily be missed
Feb 2020
i found the tour guide knew a lot about the local area that i would have never found out without going on this tour there is a lot to see and do ,it would be hard to get that much in on a half day if you went by yourself this was the best way to go and see what is around we had only limited time so our group signed up and went on the 1/2 day tour thinking we could drive out to something if we needed more time at one spot but didn't need to they gave you enough time at each stop without feeling rushed if you think this is helpfull please tick helpful to make it easier for others

Queenstown sights
Jan 2020
A lovely way to become familiar with the area around Queenstown. The van was comfortable, the driver knowledgable, and overall a great time. We stopped in Arrowtown, which is a cute little town with a quilt shop which was a bonus for me, and to end we got the water taxi back into Queenstown. A definite should do for visitors.

Good tour for the highlights of Queenstown
We did this tour because we particularly wanted to see Arrowtown.

Tania was a very knowledgeable guide that gave us plenty of information on everything we saw.

There were only 15 people on the tour and the minibus was very comfortable.

The wine tasting was really good. We are back to do their wine and beer tasting tour in two days.
