Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Gordon, our guide and driver could not have provided a more enjoyable, comprehensive, informative and accommodating morning for our group. His local knowledge and driving skills combined into a first class commentary for the entire journey through spectacular scenery and jaw dropping vistas. A trip well worth making for anyone visiting Queenstown.

If you are fortunate enough to have Wolfie as your driver and guide, then you are in for a treat. He picked us up from our hotel in a comfortable 4WD minibus before 8.30am and returned us nearly five hours later. Wolfie’s driving skills, intricate knowledge of the area covered and his own stories and memories was outstanding. He gave us regular stops for photo opportunities and even offered to take snaps himself if he thought that he was in a better position. Thoroughly recommended.

very interesting area to see, unique landscapes and shear rock faces way too close to the road for comfort.
Informative and obliging driver. Photo opportunities galore.

Absolutely fabulous views all along Skippers Canyon! Our driver, Gordon, made us feel quite safe on this stunning road and had detailed knowledge of the history of the area as well as recounting some wonderful stories. An adventure not to be missed!

We phoned to book because the booking portal showed no availability.
Despite that, a tour was organised and we were picked up at our queenstown hotel on time.
To our surprise, we were the only guests.
Our guide Gordon was great. Friendly, very informative and also very safe on a very scenic route up Skippers road to the old school.
Lovely morning tea.
We got more than we expected snd highly recommend this trip and this business.
Thanks Wolfy and Gordon.

Unforgettable Skippers Canyon Tour went above and beyond expectations! We called really last minute and they were able to accommodate two of us in a private tour of the Canyon (which is absolutely breathtaking by the way!). We had freedom over our experience and we’re able to ask for specific spots to take photos. Our guide led us to the best photo spots. He was very knowledgeable and had impressive driving skills. Once we mentioned we were LOTR fans he made sure to point out filming locations and showed us images directly from the movie so we could see exact locations. Would definitely recommend to everyone!

This was the best thing we did in Queenstown. Absolutely amazing views. Spent @ 4 hours on the backroads w/ Del (4wdexpeditions.nz) in a super comfortable Range Rover. Great driving skills needed!! Learned a lot about the area, the gold mining era, the area now, etc. Fabulous 1/2 day outside the hubbub of downtown Queenstown (which is wonderful too).

Great experience with this kind of tours. My first experience riding on the van along the slim edges of the mountains thousands feet high. The views are fantastic
It's money worth spent.
Foremost, you will need a skillful driver and knowledgeable like Wolfy from Queenstown Heritage Tours. Bravo!

We did Skippers Canyon Tour with Queenstown Heritage Tours - all well managed by Wolfgang and Craig! Fascinating landscapes and photostops at the best viewing points. Good idea the picnic with tea, coffee and wine at the end, at the old schoolhouse.

Skippers Canyon was a place that really drew my interest when I started researching the Queenstown area. The scenery looked spectacular but the road looked terrifying. So I decided to hire this tour so that I could watch the scenery and leave the driving to a professional.

Greg was our driver. He picked us up right on time and was a very friendly fellow. Turns out he was also very knowledgeable about the history of Skippers Canyon and the S C road. As we drive through the canyon he gave us the entire history of the people, places and things that made the canyon far more than a pretty sight. It came alive.

My only disappointment had nothing to do with Greg or the tour company. It was the disappointment of seeing how mankind, in pursuit of gold really decimated the upper portions of the canyon.

The drive is certainly not for the faint of heart. There were several times when there were audible gasps from passengers as Greg pulled over to the side of the road near the edge to park. But we developed great confidence in Greg’s driving as the trip wore on.
