Planning Your Visit

  • When to visit?

    A difficult question to answer, as Queenstown has 5 different climate zones! To be safe however, the dry season is May to October, but you can visit all year-round.

  • How long to visit?

    It all depends on what you're planning - if you want to go backpacking, visit the mountains, and see the beautiful countryside, then one to two weeks will satisfy any happy campers.

Pick up was on time and everything went smoothly. We enjoyed every aspect of the trip. The other passengers were friendly and Andy, the driver/ host was top class. His friendly commentary ensured a good day. Small numbers made the trip even better as we felt we had a personal guide. A long day but worth it in every way and would certainly recommend using a commercial operator to do this trip from Queenstown and would certainly recommend this company.

Fabulous lunch and relaxing boat trip. Plenty to see and do at Walter Peak Station. Great staff there! Beautiful place and a must see and do if staying in Queenstown. Very good value for money!

Excellent, friendly staff including tour guide driver and Milford Sound cruise staff- fun and entertaining- the idea of "Liquid Sunshine" will be indelibly fixed in my brain box. :)

Great value for money. Awesome guide and safety training. Beautiful sites and the most thrilling ride!

A memorable experience - very special way to visit this incredible part of the world!
