Thoroughly enjoyed the tour to Skippers Canyon. The road was amazing and the driver did a great job. We were lucky to see a falcon resting on a rock. Had plenty of stops to see the sights and were able to walk across the bridge. Enjoyed the morning tea which included New Zealand wine and yummy homemade cheese. Would recommend anyone to do this tour.

This one was adrenelin packed with the added bonus of earthquake rapid. The helicopter hike was great with a little swing in movement up to Skippers Canyon. Friendly setup.

Awesome and informative trip. Ride to Skippers canyon was exciting given there are no barriers on that road. Guides told some interesting background stories about the location and during the rafting. Rapids were enough of a challenge and still provided a relief when we made it past them.

It was our first day at Queenstown and it really was unforgettable. Skippers Canyon was just amazing. We experienced four seasons in just one afternoon. Perfect scenery for photo. One of the best things to do at Queenstown. Our guide was just excellent. He was very informative and passionate. Overall a very professional tour. Would recommend it for everyone.

I want to let you know how much we enjoyed our recent trip on the tour 'Skippers canyon heritage 4WD' while in Queenstown, New Zealand. Our guide was the best. Very professional and informative on the canyon and local area. He made our tour one of the highlights of our trip to New Zealand. Thanks from Tom & Kathy!
