Sarah our guide was great. We only normally walk on a flat terrain so this was more difficult for us but Sarah did walk to our speed. We walked the Mount Crichton loop, Sarah was informative pointing out tree types, the different birds and telling us about the local area history. Once we reached the top the view of the lake and surrounding hills was just beautiful. Sarah provided us with a lunch of a coronation chicken roll, cookies, chocolate and fresh fruit along with a couple of cups of coffee. Once reenergised we made our way back to the van and we were dropped off in Queenstown. We had a great time, Sarah was a good conversationalist with a good sense of humour.
We really enjoyed the tour. Gary was friendly and informative, the wineries were wonderful. Loved the wine cave and Emily did a wonderful job at Gibston Valley Winery. Dominion Rd Winery had wonderful views and great wines. The meal was lovely, something different and the wines were well matched. Would have been nice to have a room of our own to enjoy the meal. Our last stop at Kinross was great too and we were able to taste wines from more than one winery. Altogether a fabulous day. Thank you!
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 .
Great journey on the Earnslaw, such a shame that it rained all day. I did try to defer to the next day but this was not very flexible due to less than 24 hours notice. Animal farm was great - would have been more enjoyable on a dry day of course. The afternoon tea was quite average ; old scones & low quality confectionery jam, plus full of sparrows pooping everywhere & eating the food!
Was fantastic, great guide that loves his work! Would prefer for longer time to hold the swords, like an extra 30mins would make it memorable!
