There’s so much to do in beautiful Queenstown it’s hard to fit everything...

There’s so much to do in beautiful Queenstown it’s hard to fit everything in. Queenstown Highlights makes sightseeing easy. We’ve chosen 6 must-see locations and activities which everyone should experience whilst in Queenstown. • Queenstown Hill View point: Get the camera ready for stunning views of Lake Wakatipu, the Remarkables and Bob’s Peak.• AJ Hackett Bungy Bridge: Experience the thrill of bungy either as a watcher or maybe even as a jumper. (To jump: Combo Option).• Gibbston Valley Winery: Taste a selection of locally produced fine wines, including the celebrated Pinot Noir at this award winning winery.• Lord of the Rings Film Location: Keep that camera handy. The famous Pillars of the Kings scene was shot here and the views are spectacular.• Arrowtown: There’s gold in them hills! Rich in colonial architecture but with modern boutiques and quirky shopping Arrowtown is a real treat. Enjoy the Lakes District Museum or Chinese Miners’ Settlement.• Shotover Jet: No visit to Queenstown is complete without riding ‘the World’s most exciting Jet Boat ride’. (Combo option)

Recently did the sightseeing tour of Queenstown with Lindsay as our guide. The sights were absolutely beautiful and it was so great getting to know a bit more about the surrounding area. The tour group was very small so we were able to go along at a very relaxed pace, with adequate time to see everything. Lindsay was very friendly... More

I have fallen in love with Queenstown, the people, facilities, views, excitement and its such a clean eco friendly place. There are a multitude of things to do and if you hire a car the scenery is just breath taking and every changing even just 10 minutes out of Queenstown. Food is a bit pricey but you do pay for...

James provided an excellent overview of local history , activities (ski hill, bungy jumping), vineyards and wine tasting and folk lore. We saw and learned so much about the area in a relatively short time frame ( 4 hours). Would highly recommend this tour.

We sure had a great time in Queenstown, we have nothing to complain. Our driver and tour guide was simply amazing, we visited some nice places, tasted wines and cheese... I simply recommend this to everyone.

Go to the top, the view is breathtaking! Take the cable car which is not expensive around $26 in 2011. I went there in August so still some snow at the top of mountains.

Part of a 10 day visit to the south island, New Zealand, after a longer stay in Australia, Queenstown was the highlight of a wonderful tour last May. We are seniors and opted for an organised visit so as to include the maximum. Queenstown Highlights was the high point of an excellent experience. Our guide - we had our own... More

I wasn't expecting to get as much out I this tour as I did. James, the driver, had a lovely easy manner about him. The tour brought you around the main sights with great views and an informative commentary that seemed almost conversational rather than a monotonous monologue. You got to sample some of the regions wine and had some... More

Picked up in a Mercedes van and driven around for 3 1/2 hours. Good value, very informative and a good way to see a lot in a little time. I bungy jumped and even though they were running a little late we still got to see everything as described on Internet. Chris Lewis our driver was great. Very personal tour.

I had a brilliant time on the tour. There were a great mixture of things from the wine tasting to Lord of the Rings sites. My tour guide was very interesting and informative and the atmosphere on the tour was great too. I have even booked a bungy jump after going to the bridge and watching the video of the... More
