Morning Tour

Sit back, relax and soak up the scenic sights on this fun and informative morning of guided sightseeing. This tour runs with small numbers, is family friendly and includes complimentary CBD hotel transfers in a luxurious minivan.

Begin with breath-taking panoramic views at a local observation point on Queenstown Hill where you can take the best panoramic photos in Queenstown.

Stop into Gibbston Valley Winery, one of the region’s first commercial vineyards, and indulge in a wine tasting or simply enjoy a tea or coffee in the cellar door. Check out their onsite cheesery or gift shop (where time permits).

Sneak a peek at one of the “Lord of the Rings” filming locations envisioning the “Pillar of the Kings” scene on the cliffs overlooking the Kawarau river.

Continue on to explore the 1860’s gold rush era and colonial architecture of historic Arrowtown with time to wander the picturesque main street and Chinese Settlement.
