Great interest in steamship. Farm tour and tea were very well done. Would recommend it for a gentle alternative to the high adrenalin activities
The tour is awesome and educational . Scones and jam afternoon tea was delicious.
Great tour, great tea and scones. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour there.
What an enjoyable afternoon. Stunning cruise in the lake with all its incredible views. Turned a corner to find the homestead. Cant wait for it to be opened as a B and B. Peter was a fantastic tour guide. Natural setting, tranquil, enjoyable. Lovely touch to have afternoon tea in the homestead.
Really good host, amusing and interesting. I enjoyed the Devonshire tea during the break, which was followed by the shearing.
The boat trip was fantastic and very interesting and the farm tour was informative. We all had a great time.
We were lucky enough to have a fine, sunny day when we recently travelled on the SS Earnslaw to Walter Peak Farm. My husband was fascinated by the steam engine on board the ship and I enjoyed the magnificent scenery along the way. Our Guide was most informative and entertaining when demonstrating both the sheep shearing and dog mustering techniques and our morning tea of scones and date loaf was made all the more enjoyable by the beautiful views from the old farm house verandah. I found Real Joirneys to be a most efficient Tour Company with all the tours we did with them during our stay in Queenstown. It is such a beautiful place to visit we are already planning our next trip.
Real Journeys is the best!
Everything perfect, staffs were so wonderful :)
We will go back and visit them again and again.
This is a wonderful tour, well worth the time and money, I had a fantastic time
Delightful day! Every activity was high class. Informative and well worth the price of the ticket.
Loved the steamship!!! Nice ride over and back. Great time to relax, ride a part of history, and take lot's of pictures. The Farm was great. I grew up on a farm and it was a treat to check one out in NZ. Great guides at the Farm and the afternoon tea was very nice. The sheep dog demonstration was amazing!!! The new litter of puppies were adorable.
It was a very nice tour with the old steamer. The farmer told us about the farm and showed who to cut a sheep. That was very interresting as well as to see his little dog gather sheep.
The afternoon tea was nice. We had a few small showers but most of the day was clear.
We really enjoyed the farm tour. The cruise would have been better if the weather would have been warmer and less wet.
Excellent trip for the family. The steamboat, farm animals, and sheep shearing show was great! Awesome value....
We really enjoyed the trip out to the farm on the Earnslaw. The tour of the farm was pleasant and so was the tea sitting out on the deck with a stunning view of the lake.
A relaxing boat trip, watched sheep shearing, lovely food, hand fed other farm animals, some local history, perfect weather, great for all ages and nationalities.

We were looking for a light sight-seeing day and this fit the bill perfectly! It was great fun watching how the dogs round up the sheep, and interesting to see the sheep shorn. We had tea in the main house and found the entire experience to be very worthwhile.
Great day out! The history of the steam ship is very interesting. The visit to the farm was a lot of fun. Very enjoyable!
Queenstown is a place everyone would like to retire to. The scenery is so magnificent and breath taking. The Walter Peak Farm Tour and Cruise is a wonderful way to spend time exploring the further beauty of this great destination. The expert commentary provide by Peter, our guide on arrival at the homestead was very informative and interesting.
The hospitality of our waitresses providing morning tea was also very positive. We had plenty to eat and drink making it a superior outing for the day. Recommend as a must if visiting this beautiful city. Peter S Brisbane Qld.
A good trip and interesting to see the sheep shearing. The Earnslaw was an amazing boat and so well preserved.
