Booked the 'Historical Arrowtown Tour' the night before, as it came up as 'new' on Viator and was very impressed.

Cathy arrived exactly on time, and allowed me to sit up front since I was the only person booked.

She was very friendly and knowledgable. We drove through Queenstown and over towards Lake Hayes and Arrowtown, stopping for photos and tales of the past.

Cathy gave great insights into how the area had developed, and the direction it was taking. It's a great drive/tour for history enthusiasts.

In Arrowtown, Cathy equipped me with a map and allowed me to explore for an hour. I chose to do the town walk (20min) and visited the small museum.

Cathy even offered to drop me in town just in time for the Winter Festival Parade :)

Great personalised service - highly recommended!

Kathy was an amazing tour guide and showed us how beautiful the South Island of New Zealand is. She was very knowable with the history of the area and allowed us plenty of time to explore, especially when it came to snow. The scenery was truely mind blowing. I highly recommend this relaxing and enjoyable tour!! :)

Waking up with rain in the morning we were initially disappointed that the popular excursions would not work. Then we found this tour and OMG what an absolute winner! Better than anything else we could have done. Wayne the owner drove us through breathtaking beauty to little towns and pubs steeped in history and character and improved by the great atmosphere and great beer!! What an absolute winner! I can recommend this as one of the best tours Queenstown offers! Thank you Wayne! What a brilliant friendly and knowledgable host. Will be back!

A wonderful day filled with scenery and history. Wayne, the tour guide, ensured that we had every opportunity to enjoy the scenery and take our photographs. He showed a comprehensive knowledge of the area and its history. His commentary was filled with anecdotes and peppered with jokes. He was friendly, easy going and had wonderful microphone skills! The bus was spacious, comfortable and easy to get in and out of. Morning tea at Cromwell was delicious and afternoon tea refreshing. A great day, thanks Wayne.
