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.

Considering the mega expense of almost any activity in the Queenstown area, this was a nice little surprise. Used this service from the Hilton Hotel to the 'down town' area of Queenstown (whilst staying closeby in the Frankton area). It was about a 15 min...More
