What people are saying about Queenstown

It was the best quality cruise for the value and the best travel for distance to see the other end of Lake Wakatipu. Excellent commentary by the Captain of the vessel and amazing scenery. The crew was also awesome and very friendly and accomodating. The trip was an hour and a half long and good value for money. Was safe for people of all ages. Blankets were offered for those who chose to stay outside for the duration of the trip if needed. Great photo opportunities. Also had the option of either being inside or outside viewing. was a very smooth sail.

Queenstown Scenic Cruise Reviewed by Mike, 11/16/2020

The experienced is wonderstruck. The stunning beauty of Milford sound is extra ordinary . Should be on top of your lists when visiting Queenstown. The driver is funny but full of knowledge although he forgot to hand over my boarding pass and ticket for food on time. I was looking for him in the parking area to get my passes. I recommend the driver should asked if everyone got their boarding pass before we get off the bus .

Super fun & super sunny. Great size group & enthusiastic driver. Was an early morning but totally worth it! Picture stops were fantastic & food stops were cute (lambs!) Didn’t know what to expect re Hooker Valley Track but was super doable & breathtaking! Would 100% redo this route. Great for solo travellers & couples.

An amazing trip with the best Guide! Funny and Quirky was a great time! Super fun and informative! Plenty of stops to overcome tiredness the bus (from someone who has motion sickness) Alongside more than enough time to enjoy the views in the hotspots and take photos and just take in the nature and scene!

Coach driver Pauly and Cruise captain Callum were top notch. They were informative cheerful and gave great commentary throughout the tour. The picnic lunch had a variety of food and was more than adequate in size. Numerous stops for photo opportunities was appreciated by all.
