What people are saying about Queenstown

Gorgeous. Nice coach. Laid back, informative commentary. Nice boat

We were picked up from our hotel (Mercure). The coach was quite comfy. The commentary was quite slow but informative too. There were a good number of stops for some gorgeous photos. The refreshment stop was quite cool and there were decent vegetarian options and there were friendly alpacas around too. The cruise was pretty straightforward and we spent most of the time on the deck. The commentary on the cruise is not as audible on the deck but the views are spectacular (we had sunny weather all through - saw a few juvenile seals lazing around on the rocks, no dolphins though). There are some basic meals available on board for vegetarians but you can't pay by cards that don't have details embossed (I paid later at the counter). They offer an optional helicopter or plane ride back to Queenstown provided weather is good. Perfect all round for romance and photography since the entire journey is quite breathtaking

A truly magical morning out on The Spirit Of Queenstown Cruise..

My first visit to Queenstown, so this was my first taste of her wonderful beauty, and she did not disappoint. The luxurious Spirit of Queenstown cruise boat made for a wonderful and comfortable journey on Lake Wakatipu. The panoramic views were absolutely breathtaking, I could go on, but all I say is I highly recommend this cruise, especially if you're new to Queenstown. Thank you to the skipper and crew of The Spirit Of Queenstown for a wonderful morning on the lake. I will be coming back and taking this cruise again for sure!

A road trip experience that is unique and enchanting

From start to the end of the trip, it was well guided by Russell. The journey was filled with many scenic landscapes and ideal stops for quick wefies. It was pleasant that Russell giving us some historic facts and tales about the various places we were driving along. Importantly, the cruise experience was pleasing and the lunch buffet was decent. Milford Sound is definitely a multi photo worthy place.

Fantastic!! The guide Sam was a high point. The Fiord was amazing!

I especially appreciated our guide Sam who was informed and entertaining throughout the trip. He is a safe and careful driver too, which really helped for those of us not used to driving on high mountain roads. I would recommend this trip to anyone visiting Queenstown, as it has been a high point of my trip here. Thanks again to our guide and driver Sam, who did an amazing job.

a terrific day out with good company very informative bus driver

The Southern Discoveries organised trip was great. picked up from the motel by taxi, great Bus Driver who told us about all the places along the route. stopped at a couple of places for brunch coffee etc which were very clean and fast service. cruise on the Milford sound was terrific and lunch (while some food ran out) was very nice with plenty of variety.
