Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: There’s so much to do in beautiful Queenstown it’s hard to fit everything in. Queenstown Highlights makes sightseeing easy. We’ve chosen 6 must-see locations and activities which everyone should experience whilst in Queenstown. • Queenstown Hill View point: Get the camera ready for stunning views of Lake Wakatipu, the Remarkables and Bob’s Peak.• AJ Hackett Bungy Bridge: Experience the thrill of bungy either as a watcher or maybe even as a jumper. (To jump: Combo Option).• Gibbston Valley Winery: Taste a selection of locally produced fine wines, including the celebrated Pinot Noir at this award winning winery.• Lord of the Rings Film Location: Keep that camera handy. The famous Pillars of the Kings scene was shot here and the views are spectacular.• Arrowtown: Rich in colonial architecture but with modern boutiques and quirky shopping Arrowtown. Enjoy the Lakes District Museum or Chinese Miners’ Settlement.• Shotover Jet: No visit to Queenstown is complete without riding ‘the World’s most exciting Jet Boat ride’. (Combo option)

Reviewed August 25, 2012

The Queenstown half day tour is a great way to see Queenstown. I had a very good time in Queenstown. The tour guide Mr Lyall McGregor is very friendly and professional. The tour will take you to the major attractions, eg Arrowtown, Lake Hayes... High recommended!

“Good value, worth doing”
Reviewed July 30, 2012

Great tour,very informative and about 3 hrs long. Takes you around queenstown and some spectacular places, Bungy bridge, movie locations, winery & cheesery. Yum. Arrowtown is a great place to visit, lots of great shops, different from what you see in Queenstown. Just wish we could of stayed in Arrowtown abit longer.

“A great way to see queenstown...”
Reviewed November 16, 2011

We did the morning queenstown highlights tour and it was a highlight of our NZ trip! James our guide was informative, friendly & really good fun!!

The structure of the tour is great and all small groups so seems really personal! James for example we bumped into the next day and got out of his car to chat!

LOTR sights are great as was arrowtown...

When we went to AJ Hacketts, they gave Nick my husband time to do a bungy even though this wasnt actually part of the tour!!

Definately recommend!!!

Thanks James!
