This is an activity definitely worth doing while in Queenstown. It's quite short in duration (25 minutes I think), but with lots of adrenaline while the driver was going nearby all the possible rocks and doing 360 degrees turns. They are giving you a waterproof coat in order to not wet your clothes. You can then stay on the river beach and watch other boats passing by in speed. I would definitely advise you to book a hotel transfer too, as the taxi is quite expensive for such a long distance.

We were taken by our lovely and knowledgeable guide, Eva, to the three wineries - Kinross, Mt Rosa and Gibbston Valley. Sam at Kinross was very informative and friendly, our wine tasting and pairings with lovely small lunch was delicious. The cave at Gibbston Valley was awesome and the guided tour was wonderful and informative. Recommend all three wineries and the tour highly! Was a highlight of our trip to Queenstown.

Very enjoyable half day touring two winery regions and a total of 3 wineries plus one brewery. Very informative and knowledgeable staff at each venue who were obviously passionate about their product. Lunch was delicious too. Gary our tour guide for the day did an excellent job relaying informative stories about the history and geology of the region all delivered with a quick wit. A brilliant day out

Great Experience! It was my favourite activity in Queenstown. (Even better than Skydive and Bungy!) I was visiting Queenstown with a friend and we loved the jet boat ride. It’s definitely a “must do” in New Zealand. Even if pricing is pretty high, I think it was worth every cent and I would do it again. Thank you for the great experience!

Amazing experience. From start to finish. The views you get from the boat are spectacular, and you are actually on the boat for quite a long time. Highly recommend!
