  • The ranking of tours, activities, and experiences available on Tripadvisor is determined by several factors including the revenue generated by Tripadvisor from these bookings, the frequency of user clicks, and the volume and quality of customer reviews. Occasionally, newly listed offerings may be prioritized and appear higher in the list. The specific placement of these new listings may vary.

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.

    Highlight of our 2 week vacation to New Zealand. Flight was as amazing as Milford Sound boat ride. Pilot was great. Excellent staff.

    We loved the whole journey from Queenstown to Milford Sound. The Coach arrived on time, clean and comfortable. Our driver Brandon provided excellent service throughout the entire trip. The music on the bus was great and Brandon delivered stories in a entertaining way. We stopped at several scenic spots, giving us plenty of time to take photos and rest. Although the journey was long, we had a good time on the bus.

    This was the highlight of our Tolkien adventure! We visited scenes of famous moments and had so much fun running around Lothlorien in costume. The pictures are glorious. We loved the intimate experience with a small group. Vicky was a phenomenal guide, full of enthusiasm and insider kiwi LotR Intel!

    I had been told that a trip on the TSS Earnslaw was something one must do in Queenstown and they were right. The boat itself is fascinating - one of the few coal powered steamers still operating in the world. We did the farm tour. Congratulations to Phil and Kim (Border Collie sheepdog) for an instructive and entertaining tour including shearing and demonstrating the fantastic prowess of sheepdogs

    We had a fantastic experience with Glenorchy Air. We booked the fly/cruise/fly to Milford Sound and it was absolutely incredible. All the staff were friendly and helpful and really went the extra mile to make it a great day out. The views from the plane were simply stunning and unforgettable. If you only do one thing in Queenstown take a flight with Glenorchy Air…you won’t regret it!!

    Superb communication when the cruise portion of our fly-cruise-fly booking had to be changed (a great call with the weather that was approaching). Your team adapted to the situation and made our fly-only tour of Milford Sound a spectacular event. Every member of your staff was incredible! You can’t pick the weather to travel in, but you can pick a first class team to work with when things change. Book this team with confidence!!! I know we will on our next trip to Queenstown.

    Had a great time doing the 6 zipline tour as a family. My daughter had the most fun watching her Dad take on his heights phobia!!
    Great fun afternoon on the slopes above Queenstown - ziplining was fun, views were incredible and the guides were knowledgeable and safety conscious.
    Recommend for a fun arvo.

    We loved the Iconic Historical TSS stream Boat with the Walter Peak Farm and afternoon tea deal. The boat ride to and from the farm was so lovely, we checked out the engine room, we had a drink on the second floor and enjoyed the lovely views of the lake the whole journey. Kevin, the farm guide, was very friendly and informative. The old farm house now turned into the restaurant is surrounded by the beautiful gardens and the water and mountain views, my 14 year old son loves the farm animals and the ducks in the lake and birds around the property. The afternoon tea has a huge selection of sweet treats and was so yummy. I have taken so many photos just trying to capture everything we seem, but the photos couldn't do it justice. We totally recommended it.

    Best trip ever. Make sure you bring sunglasses as the wind at speed is vicious. Scenery first class. Boat comfortable and ended up pretty dry! Wanted to do it again ......if only. Better than other jet boats on larger lakes as you have the fantastic shallow river dart to traverse.
