Did the zip Trevor with a couple of work mates. It's a lot of fun, however a little too much background information on trees/the environment etc...more zipping would be better

The Zipline Ecotour was really fun activity in QT. You get a nice view of the Lake Wakatipu and the beautiful mountains around it. It gives a little adrenaline rush going down the ziplines. Great fun and very entertaining and fun guides!

Me and 2 of my friends booked into the Ziptrek tour, on the 6 zip course. The weather was good on the day but even if it wasn't this activity would still be a hit on a rainy day. The tour was 3 hours long and i could see why, the attention to safety was excellent. and the 2 tour... More

We did this last week (my mother and I) the weather was rainy, cold and bleak and both of us were not looking forward to it. That all changed when we met Connie and Reece! Both were so informative, lovely, funny and some of the best people we met in queenstown. They made it an unforgettable experience which was so... More

My daughter and I tried out Ziptrek today (11th May). It was a cold and rainy (not heavy rain) day but the staff were able to provide wet weather gear (gloves, long pants,jackets & beanies). The staff rostered on at time, were Connie & Rhys..amazingly friendly and conversational. There are 5 lines set up that you traverse down Bob's Peak... More

This is the second time I have been on the Queenstown Ziptrek. It is a great way to spend a morning or afternoon having a lot of fun. Ziptrek is for all ages, all you need is a scene of adventure, a good scene of humor and it helps if you are not afraid of heights. Today it was raining... More

I have done the 6 line tour with 3 teenage children and we really enjoyed it. After the tour I gave myself a big clap on my shoulder that I have done it because I am usually very anxious of falling. The guides were very knowledgeable about the area and the whole eco sustainability. The kids/young adults have done quite... More

This was a great beginner's zipline tour. The ziplines were pretty short though. If you are considering it, definitely do the 6 zipline tour which is what we did. The 4 ziplines will leave a lot to be desired. The first 3 are just through the trees and the first 2 are very short. The 4th one is a nice... More
