The Gondola Ride was good; view of lake from restaurant was beautiful. Excellent buffet lunch. Could walk around the top area and take photos. There were other activities we did not partake in. Note: Parking is a big problem! Very limited parking at Gondola entrance; street parking costs and limited to time. At a minimum this information about parking should've been on notes from Viator. We allowed 45 minutes before our Gondola time and only have 5 minutes to spare after finally finding parking.

Great views from up the restaurant. The buffet lunch was great, with plenty of options. Once you are done with lunch, plenty of places to explore and take in more great views of Queenstown.
