I had a great time in the tour! It was a bit of the best of what Queenstown can offer and I enjoyed everything. The driver-guide (Podge) was amazing and very, very knowledgeable -- he was able to answer almost every question that my co-travelers and I asked about Queenstown, even the history-related ones. Over all a really, really good experience.

Graham our tour guide was great, friendly and engaging , he drove the van very well and took us to some great areas, with fantastic views of the mountains, lake And Queenstown . It was a great tour , we saw more than I excepted. The cheese board with wine tasting at Bald Hill Winery was a real treat. To top it off the water taxi ride back to Queenstown gave us even more spectacular views ! This is a great tour that you can just sit back and enjoy the sights without any stress of driving yourself around and is quick and easy!!
