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)

Recently visited Queenstown for the first time so decided upon a guided tour of the immediate area. Our daughter had booked us a half day tour with Queenstown Highlights. Fantastic tour with an excellent driver/tour guide called Bruce, in a new and very comfortable mini-bus. The tour took us to a Bungy bridge, wine and cheese tasting at Gibbston Valley winery, Arrow town, a fantastic little town to look around, the Lord of the Rings location, and between those a very enjoyable tour of the area with a very informative and relaxed explanation of the area by Bruce. Well worth going on, not to be missed.

Queenstown is a wonderful destination with lots to see and do.
We did the half day Queenstown tour which included excellent photo stops, watching bungy jumping, wine and cheese tasting and a visit to Arrowtown. We had a lady tour guide whose name I can't remember (apologies) but she was very friendly and profesional. Great local knowledge and advice about other things to see and do if requested. They specialise in small groups (5 in our group) so the service is more personal and this really adds to the enjoyment of the tour. Do this as soon as possible after you arrive as it is a great introduction on what Queenstown has to offer and very good value. Highly recommended.
Queenstown is small enough to walk around with plenty of restaurants and cafes to suit every taste and budget. Beautiful lake with lakeside restaurant area and lots going on there. We only stayed for 2 days but it is well worth a longer visit and we hope to come back and see a bit more.

We were first time travellers to Queenstown and we couldn't have asked for a better introduction to this amazing place. Our tour guide, Evan, was the nicest and most accommodating guy and his local knowledge just made us appreciate our stay even more. Thanks for a memorable experience!

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!
