My husband and I did the half day distillery tour while we were on vacation from Canada.

Kathy was our guide and was awesome! She was very knowledgable and made it so much fun. She gave us a lot of options and really made the tour the best it could be for us.

The tour was different than any tour we have ever done and we very highly recommend it! If you like beer, spirits, and wine, you will love this tour!

We can't recommend this tour enough! Thank you Kathy and Wayne!!

We had limited time in NZ & thus, we did our research online prior to coming over. We booked the tour via email & the process was smooth & hassle-free.

On the day of the tour, we met Wayne who was our guide. Wayne was punctual, and best of all, he was warm & friendly, which made the tour even more enjoyable. We took the Arrowtown-Wanaka half day tour and with Wayne as your guide, one really can't go wrong. He was informative yet entertaining and he took us to the best places to see the sights in the short time we had. Definitely a plus in our books! :)

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!! :)
