A wonderful afternoon.

Queenstown is obviously gorgeous, and the movie set tour just made it that much more enjoyable. Our guide was very informative.

Stunning

Fantastic tour with funny, experienced & local guide Joe(l) - not sure about the name 😉 Due to bad weather our initial tour was cancelled but we could manage with Kate to join (or create) an afternoon tour (per WhatsApp - sooo easy). Bonus: we got an upgrade to the 4WD tour and it was awesome although we had not the best weather. Absolute recommendation to everybody. After the tour our guide recommended a bar in Queenstown with the best steaks and beers for a really fair Price - and again: totally worth it!! Thanks for that! The germans Stefanie & Martin
