Staff were very helpful, when I was unwell and unable to go on my planned tour: They were wonderfully flexible. Lovely tour guide, funny and filled us in with interesting facts and suggestions including what food options were available and where. The bus was very comfortable. Would highly recommend.

the weather was wet, the streets were flooded and we still enjoyed the ride and flowing commentary. The stops were short and sweet and delicious! Good variety and greet goodies highlighting the attraction.

Great tour - Great guide !!!

This tour was a highlight of our trip to Queenstown.. we got to visit Cromwell, Wanaka, Cardrona ,Crown Hill and Arrowtown with our very experienced tour guide Wayne. He was brilliant to listen to as his knowledge of the area and its history made it worth while.. I recommend the tour if it is your first time as it gives you a taste of the areas and helps you decide what you would like to go back and explore more of..

Wow I'm glad you enjoyed the tour and saying it was the highlight of your trip is a real complement. Wayne

Our guide was a local and new her stuff. She made the trip what it was - a thoroughly enjoyable experience with lots of interesting stops along the way. There had been a slight fall of snow prior to our trip which made it look how Queenstown and surrounds likes to look in winter. I can thoroughly recommend the trip. Just one comment - you unfortunately arrive at Arrowtown at the wrong end of the day. It would be lovely to see it in the early afternoon before the sun goes down. But you can’t have everything.

Hi, thanks for the glowing review, yes winter makes the day a bit short to fit everything in before the sun drops behind the hill at Arrowtown. We would love to see you again in Summer when the sun sets at around 10pm.
Day trip including Arrowtown

Our driver had lots of knowledge about the history and the area in general. The countryside was most interesting and lots of photo stops Arrowtown itself was a pretty small town and being autumn it was a picture of golden coloured leaves. Wonderful time to visit the area.
Very nice.. Great Experience
