We had a lovely ride up in the Gondola before the sun went down. The food was excellent and they kept putting out more as they were emptied. Plenty of delicious prawns and seafood and lots of choices. After we finished eating we sat and had a few drinks near the fire. Then we went down in the Gondola and saw all the lights of Queenstown. Go up earlier than your booking for dinner so you can have a good look around and take in the breathtaking views. Would definately do this again.
