Tipping is not customary in NZ nor is it expected. The staff are generally paid very well. But if you are use to tipping I would suggest emailing ultimate hikes with your query as they were very helpful in our planning stage. More
We are doing the 2 night, 3 day walk with Ultimate Hikes. Is there somewhere at the Queenstown office where we can leave luggage whilst hiking? Thanks Jane

Unfortunately they don't which is a real pain if you are doing your hike at the beginning or end of a vacation. You can however store your baggage at the Airport securely for about $8 per day.
