Why take this tour?

Sit back, relax and soak up the scenic sights on this morning of guided sightseeing. Begin high above Queenstown taking in panoramic views of the surrounding mountains and beautiful Lake Wakatipu. Spend time exploring the 1860's gold rush history and the picturesque colonial architecture of Arrowtown with time to wander the main street. Be wowed by the dramatic Kawarau Gorge as you pass by a Lord of the Rings film location and watch daredevils bungy jump from the famous Kawarau Suspension bridge. Stop into "valley of the vines" Gibbston wine region for a wine tasting at Gibbston Valley winery. Finish with an optional visit to Buzz stop cafe for a honey tasting or stay for lunch (at own expense). Each tour is hosted by our friendly local guides with small intimate groups sizes.
