I did the lakeside half day walk and the information about the flora and fauna was top class. As a birdwatcher we found several good birds in the trees on the walk. Morning coffee etc sat by the lake was a treat.

We hiked the Routeburn Track and couldn't believe the absolute beauty of trip. It was only a day trip up to the flats and back where we had one of the most scenic lunches of my life. My wife and I decided that our guide Carl was the best overall guide on our honeymoon as he was extremely informative about... More

We spent a good part of the day walking through a 1000 year old forest. It was breathtaking, beautiful and quiet. The guide was knowledgable and funny as he brought the forest to life for us. It was an experience of a lifetime.

Beautiful day. ended up carrying our coats as the weather was so nice. Thanks Bjorn for having us on the trip. These guys have got everything you need gear wise (we even borrowed hats and gloves, not that we needed them in the weather we had). we'd never done anything like this before so it was very exciting for us...

I was worried when I first booked snowshoeing as my daughter is only 5 years old and I have only taken her to beaches, cities and never snowing mountain tops, let alone there was a storm today, our guide was Peter, an enthusiastic man from kent, England, he made our adventure so much easier than I was ever anticipated!

My friend and I booked the snowshoeing not really knowing what to expect. We both absolutely loved it and it was definitely one of the highlights of our trip to Queenstown. The views were incredible and it's such a great way to see the mountains without skiing or showboarding. I think this is an activity that anyone would enjoy. Jerry... More

The Routeburn track was an easy walk, good for family and beginners by an expert guide. The scenery is stunning and is definitely recommended. A must do when in Queenstown.

I did two activities with Guided Walks - the Routeburn track, and snowshoeing. Both times was taken by our guide, Jamie, who is incredibly knowledgeable and easy to chat to. Having grown up in Queenstown he knows every hike, mountain, and interesting fact about the area. The Routeburn was an incredible day - the weather was perfect, and we hiked... More

My husband & I recently had the pleasure of showshoeing on the slopes of The Remarkables. It was our first time seeing snow and this was an experience we planned and booked from Australia with Guilded Walks & Snowshoeing NZ. Our guide was Jerry and he definitely didn't disappoint! We were the only ones on the walk and Jerry couldn't... More

Great half days activity. A brilliant way to be on the snow without being able to ski. It can make you be out of breathe at times but the instructor is mindful of everyone's pace. It is great to go on the mountains where skiers and boarders are banned. With the sun shining, blue skies, beautiful views and the peacefulness.... More
