A brilliant day with my large family! Jaggs and Jock put up with my Aunts teasing and were a good laugh. I felt very safe and enjoyed the amazing views! Will defiantly be recommending zip trek to anyone visiting queenstown!

We took the 6 run tour and had lots of fun. The guides are great. Only problem was you had to buy a round-trip gandola ticket but could only use one leg of it.

My boyfriend and I did the Kea 6 line tour on our first day in Queenstown. It was one of the best activities we've done yet. The ecological focus was nothing short of outstanding and the scenery and walk was beautiful. The ziplining was so fun, made entirely better with the knowledge we weren't affecting the environment and just the... More

Great way to spend and hour or so. There was just the two of us on our tour, so it was really quick. Our two guides were both informative and funny and the views were incredible. Loved it!

Our party (4 of us) were excited, but a bit nervous to do the zipline, but we needn't have been - it was so easy. The two guides (a Brazilian and an American- sorry, can't remember their names) were really chill, and made it not only fun by a bit educational. The company doesn't just use the name "Ecotours" to... More

We did the four line moa zip line. It was great fun and the guides were excellent. Was pretty pricey, but then everything in Queenstown costs. It was fun and I enjoyed it.

Glad to hear that you felt it was good value for money! We think that a 2-3 hour tour with two personal guides is too! Next time you'll have to try the Kea 6-line tour which brings you all the way from the top of the gondola hill to the base! Thanks for coming out on tour with us! Bonnie More

The 6-line Zip Trek was my first activity in Queenstown and it was fun! The guides were great and I liked the info they provided. Going upside down was a thrill:) If your in a big group, it is slow going and it is expensive for what it is compared to other activities. Nonetheless, I had a great time!

Hi there, Always happy to hear how amazing our guides are and that you enjoyed the eco component! We cap our tours at no more than 10 guests in each group and with 2 personal guides and a 2-3 hour tour we feel that value for money is up there especially when you compare it with some activities that are...

I did the 6 line trip and thought it was really good. The guides were friendly, funny and informative. The set up was very well done with safety standards very high. The guides did well to have different ways to zip on each line. The walk Inbetween is not for anybody with mobility difficulties but not too strenuous. Thanks guys!!

I did the 6-line Zip Trek tour. I was advised when I booked it that if I did the 4-line option that I'd regret it and I was glad that I took their advise because going all the way from the top of the mountain to the bottom was such an experience! I was also given the heads up that... More

“I wish I'd signed up for all 6 lines!” would have to be one of the most common feedback we get from guests who do the Moa 4-line tour.!
