It was an excellent experience, beyond our expectation. The tour guide Wayne is informative and friendly. Though it was raining when we got to the Arrowtown, we still enjoyed every bit of the tour.

Great review as not everyone is ready to jump off a bridge or out of a plane. We would rather go and watch someone do a jump and take photo's.

Thanks to a great tour guide (Cathy) who took the extra time to show us the wonderful sights on our tour. Stopping off at different locations for photos on the way and providing a chatty commentary all the way giving us an insight into the history of the area. Driving the road to Cardrona could be a bit scary but Cathy drove safely and I was very comfortable. Plenty of time to take in the sights and have meal breaks at our stops. Thanks guys - great trip!!!

Queenstown is breathtaking and anyone traveling to NZ should never miss it! It’s one of my most favorite places and would surely comeback if I have a chance. Kathy, our tour guide was excellent... she knows a lot about the places and had a lot of ahhhhaaaaa moments with her. She takes amazing pics as well.. she’s also a real estate person so you’ll get a glimpse of the housing there which I found interesting. she even found time to return my scarf and gloves when I forgot it in the van. We were well taken cared of and highly recommends her to any visiting folks! Thank you Kathy! Such a joy to be in your company!

Relaxing and very enjoyable half day tour, with a good tour guide and was made a lot better because the weather was fantastic, Lake Wanaka is very impressive and Arrowtown very quaint old town, with ample time to explore before the return trip back to Queenstown.A cold beer in the gardens of the Cardronna Hotel NZs oldest hotel in 28 degrees was welcolmed, a week later they had 30cm of snowfreak snow storm
