Booked a tour of Arrowtown & Wanaka to escape the business of Queenstown and wanted to get out and see the surrounding area. Our guide was Wayne who was very friendly, have lots of local tips and kept us well looked after. A highlight was definitely the Crown Range, covered in snow and then the beautiful town of Wanaka that has some of the best views ever. Fantastic day out that exceeded our expectations and would recommend highly.

We did a couple of tours over two days. Wayne was our guide both times. We went to Arrowtown and Wanaka. The scenery was amazing with plenty of time to take photos. Explored the towns and a few wineries along the way. Wayne was vrry welcoming and knowledgeable about the area. Definitely recommended.

Originally from Belgium (Beer Capital) so booked the Craft Beer Tour to see what New Zealand has to offer concerning it's Beers and I was not disappointed!
We tasted a couple of Beers, had an amazing tour and tasting at the distillery in Wanaka and finished with a Wine tasting in Arrowtown.
Cathy was our driver and you can really see that she loves what she's doing! Great commentaries and little stories of the areas visited. To summarize, Definitely worth booking if wanting to discover the surroundings while enjoying some nice drinks in good company ;)

Originally booked as the Arrowtown tour, we took the opportunity to extend our tour to include Wanaka and the surrounding areas as well. A decision which we thought was well worth it in the end. We were treated to fantastic views showed to us by a passionate and friendly tour guide, Wayne as well as his adorable dog Chewie.

The tour group sizes are small (we were the only two) which made our trip very personal and we had the opportunity to see unique locations not readily accessible to larger groups.

Thank you to the Remarkable Scenic Tour team for giving us an amazing opportunity to see what Arrowtown and Wanaka has to offer, without guides such as this, beautiful views and special locations would never have been accessible to us.

We had an amazing time and we would love to thank Kathy for the fantastic tour we had! Kathy was full of great knowledge and was extremely helpful!

I would recommend this to anyone looking at booking a lovely day tour, it was relaxing and interesting filled with great spots and amazing photo opportunities.

I highly recommend the tour that includes Wanaka. Some amazing views at the top of the mountain including looking over Queenstown and the vineyards.
