I booked for dinner and gondola ride. When I got to the venue, the computer system read lunch and gondola. Thankfully everything was sorted out.
Stunning views from the top looking over Queenstown. I loved the food aswell. Great options and desert bar. I would definitely visit again.

I was running late for my reservation but a very nice young woman in charge of the line got me on my way quickly. I had a seat by the window and was so busy watching everything I almost forgot to eat. Delicious food and very varied for a lunch time buffet.

The gondola ride was great. What an amazing view!! The buffet was fabulous, and the total package was about 30.00 less than even our travel agent could get. Great value!!
