What a fantastic way to experience the local wineries! Especially with the autumn colours, it's such a beautiful part of the country. The luxurious van, the knowledgeable guide Alia, delicious wines and craft beer. The platters we're outstanding! Lovely relaxed atmosphere at all 3 venues. Learnt a lot about wine! Great value for money with all the inclusions. A very well organised tour, would highly recommend it.

The ‘must do’ wine and craft beer tour in Queenstown. A relaxing afternoon/evening spent with a great selection of wines and craft beers. Heidi was fantastic to deal with and our driver Andy was super friendly and knowledgeable. Big thanks to the altitude team!! Highly recommend.

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!

This tour was amazing!! Few ladies got together for a day of wine tastings and some lunch and Altitude Tours were a great host!! Turned up to our pickup address early with a sparkling clean van with leather seats and great sounds, and also cooled bottled water! Our host Mick was sensational!! Such a great laugh and a really nice guy!! Always accommodating and making sure everyone was comfortable, before setting off to the next destination!
