Owner description: Ziptrek Ecotours is NZ's #1 Original Zipline tour and is a spectacular eco-adventure through the forest canopy high above Queenstown, situated on Skyline Gondola hill. Ziptrek runs all year round and is stunning whatever the weather. With two tours to choose from it is suitable for everyone, whether looking for an introduction into Queenstown adventure (Moa 4-Line Tour) or wanting the latest gripping eco-exhilaration (Kea 6-Line Tour) which includes the steepest tree to tree zipline in the world.

Our tour guides were really cool, and the views were really great. You learn a lot about conservation too. They have a good mission for the environment.

This was my first zip line ever and I had a great time. Our guides (TJ and Kyle) were great, very informative yet with a great sense of humor, but they were also very professional and safety focused.

I did the six line (Kea) tour which I strongly recommend over the four line tour. Yes, I know it's a bit more expensive, but the last two lines are the best. I'll admit a few of the first lines are not that long or fast.

Looks like you had a great time in Queenstown. We are pleased that you got all the cultural experiences including Fergburger. We always recommend calling your order through:) Thanks for the feedback to TJ and Kyle. We try to deliver as rounded experience as we can. The Kea 6 line tour is one that we really try to build up for the guest. Hope you get to do more zipping with us or others around the world! We have an operation in Whistler Canada if you ever get there. Cheers, Trent

Make sure you do the 6 line Kea as you definately feel more confident towards the end. The guides are friendly, helpful and encourage you to let go of your fears - worth the money!

Our family of four did the 6-line tour. Our children are 9 and 6, and they both had a blast! Our guides, Holly and Rich, were so much fun. Our 6 yr old had to tandem lines 4 and 5 and was too light to do number 6. The guides brought her down to the end platform by vehicle and she met us as we came in from line 6. I was nervous about the steep ending at first, but they do all the breaking and the work for you. You just walk down the short steps and take off. It is so much fun, and I would recommend it to anyone. They are very safety conscious and professional. Be aware, there is a short hike between lines 5 and 6, so wear appropriate shoes....lots of downhill.

We did the Moa 4 line tour. Great adventure activity for those not brave enough to bungy, suitable for all ages. Staff and guides were really friendly, helpful and knowledgeable; made the time more enjoyable. Good views, definitely worth the money would happily spend the extra money to go on the 6 line tour next time!
