There’s so much to do in beautiful Queenstown it’s hard to fit everything in. Queenstown Highlights makes sightseeing easy. We’ve chosen 6 must-see locations and activities which everyone should experience whilst in Queenstown. • Queenstown Hill View point: Get the camera ready for stunning views of Lake Wakatipu, the Remarkables and Bob’s Peak.• AJ Hackett Bungy Bridge: Experience the thrill of bungy either as a watcher or maybe even as a jumper. (To jump: Combo Option).• Gibbston Valley Winery: Taste a selection of locally produced fine wines, including the celebrated Pinot Noir at this award winning winery.• Lord of the Rings Film Location: Keep that camera handy. The famous Pillars of the Kings scene was shot here and the views are spectacular.• Arrowtown: Rich in colonial architecture but with modern boutiques and quirky shopping Arrowtown. Enjoy the Lakes District Museum or Chinese Miners’ Settlement.• Shotover Jet: No visit to Queenstown is complete without riding ‘the World’s most exciting Jet Boat ride’. (Combo option)

This morning tour went to places that I wanted to see. The driver was charming and very personable. The van was very comfortable. The itinerary is the reason I have provided a score of 3. My disappointment for me was that while we were driven to the five places on the list for the tour we were never provided with... More

If, like us, you don't have much time to spare I would definitely recommend the half day tour. James our guide was knowledgeable, courteous, entertaining and looked after us all well. Queenstown is a fabulous place and we really felt we'd done and seen a lot in just the few short hours we had. I'm sure their other tours would... More

Christian was very informative and made several stops at some great photo spots as well as the scheduled stops at the Bungy Bridge, wine and cheese tasting, and Arrowtown. A great... More

Our tour guide Ian was from Limousine South and was arranged through our travel agent, so can't comment on cost. Our original tour was cancelled by weather, so this was arranged on short notice. Ian asked what we wanted to see, and worked out an agenda, despite the rain, that fulfilled our needs. We included the Kawarau Bridge to see... More
