$10 cash only, one-way is a great way to travel. Nice and efficient and taxis are way too expensive in QT.

Take the water taxi from Queenstown to the Hilton in Frankton then walk back. Great way to experience Queenstown and surrounds from the water and to enjoy a wander back. There's a cafe along the way if you want to stop for lunch.

A great taxi ride for 10$ NZ. If you stay at the Hilton it is the best way to get to the center of town. Make sure to get the schedule, and pre arrange at the hotel. It is covered and comfortable. It takes about...More

Very friendly, great views, quick, reliable, and a very enjoyable ride. Cheaper and quicker than a taxi or an uber or a TakeMe.

Nice way to get between Doubletree and Hilton Hotels and downtown Queenstown. $10 NZ each way so more expensive then free shuttles but much more fun

If you stay at the Doubletree, you have to use it. Ten NZD each way. Takes 15 to 20 minutes. Can be bumpy. Write the schedule down for your return. There is a limit to passengers.

Loved this mode of transportation to get us to and from town. Used the water taxi most days while staying at the Hilton. Value wise you couldn’t beat it. 20 minutes across the lake admiring the scenery for $10 one way gets my vote. Highly...More

Kind of sightseeing in itself, we took the water taxi from the Hilton back into town. A nice scenic trip and much faster than driving. May be a little difficult for older people or people with limited mobility to get in and out of the...More

We used this taxi service from the Hilton to Queenstown recently. It was fast, fun, and at only $10/person each way, cheaper than a taxi.
