  • The ranking of tours, activities, and experiences available on Tripadvisor is determined by several factors including the revenue generated by Tripadvisor from these bookings, the frequency of user clicks, and the volume and quality of customer reviews. Occasionally, newly listed offerings may be prioritized and appear higher in the list. The specific placement of these new listings may vary.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    It's a big day but so worth it! My family and I had Brian as our guide on the coach and he was absolutely fantastic - after a 13 hour day he still was as upbeat and friendly as when we started. The coach was comfortable and has huge windows all around so you get great views as you travel along. Brian was great, the whole way in he gave us interesting information to really help us appreciate how special this part of the world is. Heaps of photo opportunities along the way and the bus is fitted with USB ports to charge your phone (you'll need it!)

    An amazing trip. Tim was a great pilot, very experienced and good knowledge of the area. The weather was perfect which you can’t plan for but it made it extra spectacular. Staying near Arrowtown it would have been a long day driving there. The flight option is worth it and then seeing Milford Sound by boat was also spectacular

    We had the most amazing experience on this trip. The Earnslaw trip to Walter Peak farm was just beautiful (we were so lucky to have lovely weather too). Lots of coffee, tea and snacks to chose from to purchase on the boat itself, and then THE MOST AMAZING buffet lunch that exceeded all our expectations. Had a great time listening to and watching the sheep shearing talk & demo and watching the sheepdog do her magic as well. Would 110% recommend this trip as a MUST do for any visitor to Queenstown - really worth it to include the buffet lunch. It was a big highlight during out trip :)

    Stunning landscape and we were very well looked after - happy to recommend to others. The flight back to Queenstown allowed us to save the best to the last at the end of the tour.

    ...Upon hearing the first few notes of the LOTR soundtrack playing whilst being comfortably driven through the Land... Well, that really set the scene + we knew we were in for a remarkable day. Then enter our fantastic guide, Francesco [Grazie, Francesco!]. His kindness + detailed LOTR knowledge [including the fascinating world behind the scenes] + enthusiasm... along with surreal vistas + extraordinary cosplay props just made this Middle Earth tour, Heaven on Earth. Go, enjoy the fellowship of the tour van... Wear the cloak + leaf pin, choose your weapon or wooden staff wisely... Cosplay like no other guided tour fellowship before you. And, if you have no idea what LOTR is all about, no worries. You will find the views alone will somehow transport you to an other worldly realm just the same.

    My partner and I loved this tour, the quad biking was a lot of fun. It was the highlight of our fantastic week in Queenstown. Our driver/guide, Jacob, was terrific, as were his other 2 offsiders, Jason and Jordie. Very friendly and attentive staff. They teach how to ride the quad bike/or refresher, and take safety seriously. Brilliant afternoon out on a farm with spectacular views. Plenty of opportunities to take photos. Would do it again.

    Beautiful place with really friendly and professional ground and air crew.

    Special thanks to our pilot Kurt.

    The only thing is I don't think you need to do the cruise if you fly in. Cruise was ok, but flight covers all the best stuff in 5 minutes not 2 hours.

    Running the Dart on a JetBoat was absolutely fantastic!! Our driver was fun, friendly, and an expert driver!! I had the best seat next to the driver. I literally felt like I was in the front seat of a high speed video game!!

    Really great tour to do! It was flexible so you could get off wherever or stay on till the next one. The drivers (Pete, re-pete and matty) were really nice and informative. The places we most enjoyed stopped at were
    - Arrowtown Winery
    - Ayrburn
    - Gibbston Valley Winery

    Just make sure you keep an eye on your timetable so you don’t miss your bus!

    Really friendly skipper who started a conversation on the cost of living in Queenstown. Quick no nonsense trip to Walters peak accompanied with a short message on the importance of coming to him if someone ended up overboard

    We were so impressed with Glenorchy Air. Our day trip to Milford Sound went like clock work from beginning to end. We booked the Fly/Cruise/Fly to Milford Sound. They were friendly, punctual and totally professional from beginning to end in every way. Their complimentary pick up from our hotel was fantastic. We also booked a picnic lunch which we enjoyed on the deck of the cruise watching the majestic Milford Sound pass by. Definitely the highlight of our week in QT and something we will treasure forever. Thank you Glenorchy Air.

    What a pleasant cruise!!

    Lovely from start to finish. The crew that
    You meet at the desk are friendly and welcoming. The skipper was very knowledgeable and told us lots of information and history about Queenstown and surrounding areas. He also stopped to take photos for us with remarkables behind! He did this for everyone and even let children have a go at driving the boat towards the end!

    All in all a chill cruise for all ages!

    Definitely will be recommending anyone and everyone 😊
