I was delighted that although I was the only one on the tour due to an additional group pulling out, the trip still went ahead. The landscape was stunning and Wayne (my guide) was very knowledgeable. We stopped to take photos of the lake on the way and after a fascinating guided tour of Arrowtown I had plenty of time to walk beside the river, visit the Chinese camp, take photos, visit the shops and buy a cup of tea! I would definitely recommend this tour for all ages. Lots to see and learn about.

The half day tour starts at 12.30h at the station building and the tour end at around 17h. Everyone who is interested in ENJOYING a drink is definitive on the right tour. It’s NOT about getting drunk, it’s about learning more about beers, spirits and the lovely area between Queenstown and Cardrona. The first stop is at the Fork and The Tap a charming ale house in the centre of Arrowtown. We had 4 different kinds of beer - well explained by the waitress - and a pizza to line our stomachs. (vegetarian options available on request) After the first taste we went to Cardrona Destillery, stopping at a fantastic look out on the Crown Range. (nice photos guaranteed) The Cardrona Destillery is open since January 2016, family owned and known for its ‘The Reed’ Vodka and ‘Rose Rabbit’ Orange Liqueur – of course you get a taste and a very informative tour through the distillery. (at the moment they are working to produce Whisky and Gin, can’t wait for that.) Before we drove back to Queenstown we stopped at Famous Cardrona Hotel. (The hotel was built in 1863 and is just beautiful. Lovely garden area, cosy pub and my favourite beer on the tour.) Last stop back in Queenstown: The Crafty Smith. 18 different beers on tap and 6 different for us to taste. Wow. For everyone who hasn’t had enough tasting yet can stay in the bar longer and enjoy a few more glasses, it’s open choice to leave or stay.

The guides: Wayne and Kathy are lovely, very informative and even if you are joining the group by yourself you feel never lost and lonely.

The bus: Small van with max. 10 pax. Make sure you come in time to grab a seat at the window and have the best view of that fantastic landscape.

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.
