Went for the Fox & Swing Combo with my partner. Easy booking, good briefing, staff were all friendly and humorous (oh the BANTER happening) - big smiles, not to mention nervous laughs, all around! So much nervous energy in the 10min shuttle ride leading up...More

Had the best time doing the Canyon Swing while in Queenstown! The staff were outstanding and energetic at both the CBD office and the Canyon office. Wanted to do the Fox too but you have to walk about 400m up a steep, muddy embankment and...More

Hi there! Check-in is 15 minutes before the trip time, and you should allow 2.5 hours for the whole trip. So if you booked the 4.30pm trip; check in will be 4.15pm and you would be back in town around 7pm. Hope this helps!
