What you can expect
Immerse yourself in some of the best sights and attractions Queenstown has to offer on this morning tour. From panoramic lake and mountain views of the area, to visiting Lord of the Rings set locations and sampling local wine, this tour offers an insider's glimpse into this enchanting city.
After being picked up from your Queenstown hotel in a luxury vehicle, your expert guide drives you up to Queenstown Hill. From here, admire the bird's-eye view of the city and the clear waters of Lake Wakatipu, with the Apline Remarkables mountain range lining its south-eastern edge.
At the next stop, feel your pulse racing as you watch bungee jumpers plunge off the AJ Hackett Bungy Bridge – the commercial birthplace of the sport.
Next, visit the Gibbston Valley Winery and slowly sip three tastings of their award-winning wine produced on site. Savour the fruity aromas and clean flavours.
After the winery, you arrive at Kawarau Gorge, with its flowing river and steep rocky cliffs, it's no wonder it was the site chosen to film the highly recognisable 'Pillars of the Kings' from the Lord of the Rings trilogy.
Complete the tour with a stroll through historic Arrowtown, steeped in gold rush history and filled with colonial architecture. Take some time to explore the many boutiques and cafés before being driven back to your hotel.
