2 guides take you hiking, zip lining, scrambling, cliff diving. Afterwards you get coffee, hot cocoa or tea. Totally worth the $

12 Day South Island (March) Trip Review (8 Replies)
12 Day Trip Review of the South Island I’ll admit it is a long review, but I really enjoyed my trip and want to share my experiences. Day 1: Today I flew into Queenstown and explored the city. I stopped by the I-site center to sign up for a jet boat ride on the Shotover River but they were cancelled for the day due to the river being too high and dangerous. I ended up walking around and saw the sign for Queenstown Hill and decided to do that (had read about it in the NZ Frenzy book)....More

Interesting report, thank you, Jean. I'm curious as to why you chose to do a QTN to QTN loop. Did you fly in from Australia? (Your profile doesn't show where you are from!). For most people, this is a much more expensive route than starting from AKL & flying to/from CHC.
