This was a fabulous way to spend an afternoon. After taking the Skyline Gondola to the top of the mountain, zip-lining down was a fantastic way to appreciate it even more. Being an eco tour there was a lot of important information imparted and they are clearly passionate about preserving their environment, as we all need to be. However, they... More

I booked this experience on BookMe and we were so lucky to have such amazing weather. My husband went on this experience with our 3 teenage children, son at 15yrs and twin girls at 13 years. The safety briefing was find and I got to take some good photos before they went. (Due to knee and shoulder surgery I couldn't... More

Really good set of zip wires through the forest - good fun for all the family, with a bit of environmental explanation as well. Team made it good fun for the adventurous and encouraged the less adventurous! Dont leave Queenstown without doing it!

The guides were fun and friendly as we zipped down 6 lines to the bottom of the mountain, including one line that is the steepest in the world. They encouraged us to try different positions, like hanging upside down, which was amazing. Also, we received great eco information all along the way.

I did the 6 line tour and would recommend this to everyone! It was so fun being in the trees and zip lining (flying fox) from tree house to tree house. It was such a fantastic way to get down the mountain, with stunning views along the way. The 6th line was great, steepest flying fox in the southern hemisphere!

We did the 4 line tour and loved it. I was really nervous at first but you can see that the teams take safety really seriously. Flying through the trees was exhilarating and the views are amazing... especially on the 4th line!

I loved my experience. I opted for the 6 line and it's really the only option in my opinion. It really didn't get good until the last two lines. It was a bit pricey, but everything is in Queenstown. It's a great warmup activity of your worried about bungee jumping.

Though we enjoyed our time riding the six flying fox lines, was it worth almost $700 for two adults and two children? Stephen and Ellie were fantastic, they talked us through the 4 step Eco chart that the company followed. I love the fact that some of your payment goes towards a charity. However, we had to pay $86 on... More
