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.

*Likely to sell out: Based on Viator’s booking data and information from the provider from the past 30 days, it seems likely this experience will sell out through Viator, a Tripadvisor company.

    What a wonderful day. Graham was a great guide, full of knowledge about New Zealand and the land we drove through. Plenty of stops along the way. We appreciated being part of a small group. Milford sound was absolutely stunning, We’re so glad we booked this tour.

    We were picked up on time from our pick-up spot. Dani, the tour guide with Cheeky Kiwi tours, arrived in an immaculately clean Mercedes Sprinter van. The seats were comfortable, and the temperature in the van was just right for the conditions. Dani was an engaging tour guide. She included interesting facts and historical information with a sense of humour and made sure that all guests were included throughout the trip. There were ample stops for photos with enough time at each place to take a look and stretch before continuing. Our fellow travellers were all considerate and polite. The cruise was pleasant. We had a mostly sunny day, and the scenery could never be spoilt by weather. Dani ensured our handover to the pilot was smooth. We were transferred by bus to the airstrip and enjoyed a flight back to Queenstown on a Kodiak 10 seat plane. It was a little bumpy due to the conditions. However, the pilot kept us informed of everything flight related as we went. She pointed out many land marks, taking us close to the falls as we left Milford. A thoroughly enjoyable day. We were back to town by 3:30. I would highly recommend this tour.

    This trip really was just amazing! The arrangements were seamless, views from the flight just stunning - even after enjoying NZ’s spectacular scenery for 3 weeks we weren’t prepared for such amazing sights. To top off the trip we had dolphins follow the boat’s wake on the cruise. All staff from Glenorchy Air were helpful and professional. If thinking of booking - just do it!

    Highly recommend this company for your breathtaking trip to Milford Sound. Our trip Sunday April 14th was my first time ever flying in a Cessna airplane. Libby was a great pilot and I instantly felt safe and in good hands. We had an amazing turbulent-free ride to Milford Sound, and a smooth take-off and landing.
    Every aspect of this flight / cruise went flawlessly. On time, friendly and organized. The cruise was so much fun and the waterfalls were so big they didn’t look real. We saw dolphins, baby seals and turtles. It was also suggested to pack a lunch/take food and I understand why. There is only a vending machine in the visitor center and on the boat, hot water, coffee and tea was available. Take this trip & thank me later! Highlight of our trip to Queenstown.

    I’m not sure which was more entertaining our bus driver Shailendra or the Milford Sound itself. Both were 10/10. The whole day was brilliant

    Great tour with James! Although my flight was cancelled due to weather, the ride back was enjoyable with an excellent playlist. I would definitely recommend this tour for anyone, especially other solo travellers.

    Mount Cook was the most stunning hike, in a country filled with stunning hikes. This was a great way for us to get from Queenstown to Christchurch with some gorgeous stops on the journey. I wish we had about a half hour more at Mt. Cook, as the hike was a little more rushed (not that we couldn't see what we wanted, but that I had to walk at a pretty brisk pace to ensure we were able to hike to the end and back in time) than I would have liked. Both tour guides (Jonathan from Queenstown to Mt. Cook and I can't remember the name of the woman who drove us to Christchurch) were terrific and gave us all sorts of interesting info as we drove. The transfer from the Queenstown bus to the Christchurch bus was seamless.

    We loved our tour experience to Mount Cook with Jeff! He was very friendly, funny and pointed out great facts and history about the mountain and New Zealand! Would definitely travel with this company again, was well worth the money!

    Lovely hike on a track through trees up the mountain with the sight and sound of waterfalls along the way. We had a small group of 4, luckily, and walked just over 16 km in around 5.5 hrs total trip. The walk was a steady rise with a few minor steep bits but nothing major. It was a there and back trek with a picnic halfway. The weather was kind and the scenery beautiful with some lovely waterfalls containing crystal clear water, stunning. Our guide, Jono, was extremely knowledgeable, not just about the route but also Māori cultural in general. He was good at checking in on how we were feeling, conscious of the return walk, giving options for us to choose on distance and highlighting time between toilets. Jono was a definite bonus.
    This is not a walk for young children however there is the longer possibilities for those wanting to trek further. Routeburn Track provides different levels of challenge, you choose what you want. A great day out.

    I had the pleasure of being with a group of American post graduate students from Virginia visiting the Gibbston Valley Winery as part of their stay here in Queenstown. We spent about 4 hours there, having lunch, listening to the professional and passionate Chris Keys talk about wine making and then touring the cave with Jake. The whole experience was so special and the way staff managed the visitor experience was benchmark "stuff." Thanks to all the wait staff as well as our guides Jake and Chris...a special day at a special place.

    We went to Glenorchy and Skippers in New Zealand on 6th Feb 2024. This we did from our hotel in Queenstown. It was around 7 hours of photography tour and we loved every bit of it. Skippers and Glenorchy are in opposite directions from Queenstown and the landscape in both these places is also different from one another. Skippers has rugged , canyon like landscape and Glenorchy is lakes, meadows, hills (typical of South island) . Road to Glenorchy has several super beautiful places where you will be compelled to take snaps. The scenery is so amazing that we can't believe we went to those places when we look at the photos today. We went halfway towards Paradise from Glenorchy and out there was a place where we found just us and sheep and beautiful landscape and fresh air. 

    Our Tour Guide Aistl is very joyful, talkative, knowledgeable and helpful. She treated Me and My wife like old friends. We had one of the most enjoyable times with her on the 20 day New Zealand and Australia Trip. She called us a day in advance and confirmed the participation. Then she asked us where we wish to travel from Queenstown. She recommended Skippers for its different landscape. In Skippers she took us to those scenic hill tops and herself walked to a nearby hill top (actually top of a canyon) walking in her flip flops and took several wonderful photos using our camera. My wife wanted to drive the car in NZ (she has an INTL license) and Aistl gladly obliged. Aistl would not let a moment of boredom come with her interesting stories about life in NZ, her home country and our own culture. It was fun filled 7-8 hrs with her with several photographs. We would certainly recommend this tour for the guide and the different scenary
