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.

My partner and I had an amazing time on this tour. We went bungy jumping and speed boating earlier that day so we were a bit tired but put guides (Kate UK and Kate AU) were amazing and fun! They kept the entire trip exciting and interesting - I'd highly recommend the zip line tour!!!

“Great Views of Queenstown while Flying Through the air.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

This was a great way to see Queenstown - going upside down on the flying foxes was thrilling and the last flying fox was the best on the 6- line tour! I would recommend doing the 6-line tour. I would also recommend walking up the One Mile Hill track to the Ziptrek Treehouse to see some lovely New Zealand nature on the way to the attraction. The staff were very friendly and enthusiatic - and also made each guest feel valued.

“Awesome Fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

This Zipline is the most fun I have had on Zip lines. The views are spectacular while brief because the Zip is fast! You are able to take your camera to take pictures and movies of your experience! The guides are knowledgable and teach you tricks if you feel comfortable while maitaining safety. The 6 line tour is the best and worth it. The walk between the 4 & 5th zips is downhill and steep for us Florida people but not too hard. Our Family was aged 54 to 81 and we all had a wonderful time!

“Snoozetrek”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2013 via mobile

Whilst I like the company's Eco ethos the tour itself is very dull and not exhilarating as the website suggests. If you are a thrill seeker then this is not for you. The cost for the very short and quite frankly dull tour is a total rip off. We were so gob smacked when we finished the 'tour' that my husband and I walked away without saying anything. The tour guides are friendly & have text book knowledge of trees and the local area which was ok.
I only recommend this tour to families with tweenies. Anyone else will die of boredom.

ZiptrekCrew, Manager at Ziptrek Ecotours, responded to this review, February 18, 2013
Thank you for your feedback and taking the time to respond. Our product is not developed to compete with the high adventure products that exist in Queenstown but provide a fun educational tour immersed in the New Zealand's native and Douglas fir forest. Everyone's levels of adventure is different and it is unfortunate that the Moa 4-Line tour didn't meet your personal view of what that is. If you're looking for higher adventure the Kea 6-Line tour, with the steepest tree to tree zipline in the world would perhaps have been more suitable. We're pleased you found our guides friendly and interesting, we pride ourselves on our amazing staff, which make our company what it is. Thanks and regards
