“Amazing fun even if you're scared of heights!”
Reviewed 18 September 2015

My Fiance and I had a wonderful time (just the two of us- lucky us!) on the 4 line Ziptrek Ecotour with guides Tom and Jacques. The views were amazing, and we learnt a lot about New Zealand and its history along the way. Tom and Jacques impressed us as being incredibly knowledgeable and proficient zipliners with a wonderful sense of humour. Despite being scared of heights, they provided me with the encouragement I needed to be a bit daring on the ziplines which turned out to be great fun! We can't wait to come back to complete the 6 line tour when we next come to Queenstown!

“Fun Afternoon with Ziptrek”
Reviewed 16 September 2015

Had such a great afternoon with Ziptrek! Guides were friendly and encouraging, and the system in place made it simple to use and very safe. With the Moa tour, you also get to go on the longest zipline in the world, which is pretty cool!

“Money grubbing - zero customer service”
Reviewed 15 September 2015 via mobile

Booked through a travel agent and told to show up before 12, advised 9:45 was best. I came at 10:10 only to be told that I missed my session. My ticket was cancelled and asked to pay $50 to rebook. I was referred to a rescheduling policy that I never saw before nor was mentioned by the booking agent in Queenstown. Basically paid $180 for a 2 hour zipline on very quiet day.

Zero understanding and very curt. I recommend that you go elsewhere. In tourist services, some level of understanding is required, which these people don't have.

“What fear of heights? ”
Reviewed 11 September 2015 via mobile

I'm petrified of heights and I'm far from an adrenalin junkie but this was one of the best experiences I have ever had. I didn't feel scared at all! The staff had a natural way of making you feel so safe I didn't even hesitate to let go or go upside down.
It's a must do for the whole family!
