This was my third Gondola ride in New Zealand and second buffet Dinner. I thought of cancelling it thinking how different it can be but it was a little bit better value than the one in Queenstown and I read great reviews about the restaurant. Although I was a solo traveler I was given a sear next to the window. In Queenstown you have to pay for it extra. The view was amazing. The food and the service was great and it was a very good value. Fish chowder was delicious. Great selection of food and especially desserts. The view from the platform and the platform itself was beautiful. I was so happy that I didn’t cancel it. I do recommend everyone this gondola ride and the dinner at viewing platform.

Great value meal and great views made the short Gonda ride worthwhile (not a fan of heights). Food excellent and we managed to squeeze in a wine tasting as we had no idea it was an option when we booked. $16 each for the 5 wine tasting or $11 for 3, nice wine!
