Jess and Jag are amazing guides. They bring the right amount of professionalism, knowledge, entertainment and humor to make you feel comfortable and welcomed. Like a lot of NZ companies, Ziptrek makes a genuine effort to promote sustainability, preservation and environmental. They tell a great environmental story but most importantly, they do their part as well. Very well run company... More

We had a lot of fun doing this activity. We took the 6-line and it was worth it. The view we had on the lake and the speed of the last line are just amazing. The staff was very professional and made us feel very safe. They were also very friendly and we had a very good time with them.... More

Great experience. I went there yesterday with my three teenagers and the 9 years old. The 5 of us had an excellent time. Dan and Naomi were not only highly professional but also very nice and kind. Very patient and great teachers. We had a permanent sense of safety as we could see everything had been thought of and prepared... More

We completed the 6-line Kea tour with guides Jess and Pete and found it to be a great experience! Both guides were very knowledgable about the area and we enjoyed listening to the stories they shared. We thought it was a great way to combine an adrenaline type activity while feeling completely safe the whole time.

It was an awesome experience and great to know how much the company gives back too. Wrap up warm, don't be afraid to go upside down and... More

The 6 line tour does the 4 line tour and then adds two much longer and faster lines, one which they say is the steepest in the world and was great. How often have you been on a zipline where they put up a safety net between you and the end just in case - didn't need it but that... More

My mom and I used a free day in Queenstown during our Active Adventures New Zealand trip to do ziplining. I had never done it before, so we decided to try the shorter 4 line tour. I was honestly very unimpressed with the ziplines themselves, but the customer service and guides were great. The photos they take along the trek... More

Had the best experience of our holidays. Ziptrek has taken an extreme sport, removed the danger but not the percieved risk and turned in into a family friendly cost effective bonding adventure experience that will have you laughing and reliving it over and over. Loved it. Loved the guides Dan and Kate. And yes still talking about it, laughing and... More
