My husband and I did the 6 line Kea tour and loved it. It was both our first times and our guides, Steve and Inge were both friendly and helpful and challenged us to try zip lining different ways upside down, backwards. They also gave recommendations on places to dine and see in Queenstown which was helpful to us. The shaking of the tree houses from the wind scared us more than the zip lining itself. I highly recommend the 6 line tour because the last two lines are worth just the view alone. You do go on a 20 minute hike to get to the last line and make sure you wear good hiking shoes to travel. They have a Ziptrek office where you can purchase merchandise and photos of your zip lining experience for a good price. The only thing that was difficult was the actual location of the tree house. I don't know why, but it took my husband and I 15 minutes to find it and kept wandering around. There are no signs that tell you where to go like the other activities all did.
Ziplining was the highlight of our trip to New Zealand. The guides were great and all members of our family from age 10 to 46 loved the experience.
Great adventure and the the best way to learn about surroundings and its history from their knowledgeable guides.
It was really awesome and all tensed adults enjoyed it. Just enough extreme for us, flying upside down helped once the first zip was done. The people were great. Remember that the trees block a lot of the views, although there were still good ones between and two out of the 6 lines offered good views. It wasn't scary.
Not as scary as I thought but exhilarating! The 6 line tour is worth it! It was especially fun when they showed us how to zipline upside down
I did the 4 line tour as this was my first time ziplining. Group was 4 people and one guide from NZ and one from Canada who were very helpful and knowledgeable. Information about sustainability given at each stop along the way. 4 line tour is great for beginners.
Absolutey wonderful! Amazed I was able to zip upside down and wave my arms about. Would thoroughly recommend this tr
Great fun for all ages (subject to their t's and C's). Really well organised and run.
This was a great beginner's zipline tour. The ziplines were pretty short though. If you are considering it, definitely do the 6 zipline tour which is what we did. The 4 ziplines will leave a lot to be desired. The first 3 are just through the trees and the first 2 are very short. The 4th one is a nice view, and from what I can remember, the 5th one is a little longer and also has a great view. Then the last zipline is supposed to be the steepest tree to tree zipline in the world. It is still really easy to do and at least you can say you did the steepest tree to tree zipline. The guides are really great and a lot of fun. Really nice experience, but not a huge adrenaline rush so if that is what you are looking for, you won't get it here.
Enjoyed the tour - while its more for beginners than seasoned zip liners, and the 6 zipline tour is really a better option than the 4 zipline tour, either option is good. Be aware that the 6 line tour drops you off at the base of the Skyline Gondolo, so you will have to buy another ticket to ride back up if you have additional activities planned at the top after Zip Lining.
It was definitely fun! We'd never ziplined before in our life and we had no problem doing the 6 zip lines instead of the 4. The guides were good and were very safety minded. I gave it four stars instead of five because it wasn't quite the adrenaline rush I was expecting.
My zipline tour was so much fun for a first time; but I would have really wanted to do the 3-hour extreme tour if I had had the time. The 2-hour tour was very good for an introduction to ziplining, but 3 of the 4 ziplines on that tour were just through the trees with no views. The 4th one was finally a view of the mountains and valley below. I believe the 3-hour trip would be more scenic viewing and not just in the middle of the forest trees.
For the amount this experience was i expected it to include the gondola ride up. How else do u get there. It is misleading to arrive and be slapped for more money before the experience started. This was not made clear enough. I have also tried to email u thru ur website and didn't get a reply. This gas left the whole experience sour. Not good enough.
