Ziptrek runs all year round and is stunning whatever the weather.

Zip-lining was a little on the pricier side, but after learning about the ethics behind Ziptrek's company you feel better about spending that kind of money. The views are absolutely stunning. Rich and Josh were awesome guides... Safety-conscious but fun. Informative about Queenstown, geography and sustainability to top it all off.

Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback. We're thrilled you enjoyed your tour and the messages you learnt along the way. Your own personal tour guides for a 2-3 hours experience on our Ziptrek tours are an added bonus compared to other zipline tours around the world and add great value for money. We have passed your feedback onto our "awesome" guides Rich and Josh. With kind regards

Had a great time on the six line Kea tour with our guides Josh and Rich. They were fun but professional and kept us feeling safe at all times. The zip lines themselves are amazing fun and you get taught how to do extra fun stuff like turn yourself upside down. The views are incredible too. I liked the Eco friendly messages - what a great and fun way to raise environmental awareness! Good job ziptrek!

We did the six line tour. Didn't love the long and steep the walk from line five to six is, but the guides were fun and informative while keeping everyone safe and moving along. The lines themselves were extremely fun. And the guides issued gloves and hats (it was quite chilly that day) to keep everyone comfortable, which was a nice touch.

My only suggestion would be to improve the camera stations along the way. They take pics of you on the first and last lines, but they either were too far away, or dark, etc. taking the pics right as people leave a platform might help. We had really wanted to get pictures as a souvenir but because of the quality ended up not purchasing a single one.

Hi Caron, we appreciate the feedback and are always looking to improve! We are working on increasing the power from tree clad solar panels to get you more options for photos for you. Glad you had a great time on our Kea 6-line tour! Bonnie

I did the Ziptrek on the weekend and I liked it and enjoyed it. It was fun. I recommend you to give it a go if you are reading my review to help with you decision. There are so many activities in Queenstown but Ziptrek is one of those don’t get affected by the weather, which means you won’t be worrying about it getting cancelled. You won’t get disappointed by any occasion. And according to my experience, it is worthy and yes, a must-do activity.

Hi Angie, thank you for the positive vote of confidence! It is true that one of Ziptrek Ecotours' strengths is that we run rain or shine and even as of late, snow!
