Fantastic tour along the Shotover river in to Skippers Canyon. Breathtaking scenery, and the owner/driver, Wolfgang really made the day. Not only is he a great driver!, he's very knowledgable and friendly. Made for a great day! Highly recommended when in Queenstown. Don't do another jet boat ride, spend half a day here instead. Well worth it!

We loved our morning in Skippers Canyon and learnt so much about the area and its past history. I kept thinking about how much less interesting it would have been without such an informative guide. That was enough education - it made for a perfect day to have wine tasting in the afternoon! We are still enjoying the wine we... More

thank you very much for taking time to review our Canyon & Wine tour. This Queenstown combination tour of Skippers Canyon and the Gibbston Valley region is all about sharing: from the historic past of Skippers Canyon and the leisurely wine tastings in the afternoon. We are glad that you enjoyed this full day tour! More

Very enjoyable thanks. Thought we spent too much time at gibbson valley wines (some are commercial arrangement my guess) but it was cool. Loved the other wineries a little more- peregrine, amisfield, and mt rosa. Guide was pleasant and knowledgeable, but would prefer a bit more passion and a local if I am being harsh. Very good trip though. Thankyou.

My husband and I enjoyed a lovely afternoon touring the wonderful vineyards and wineries of Otago Central Valley. It was like a private tour, as we were the only ones booked for the afternoon, and our wine connoisseur, Wolfey, provided a fun commentary and much knowledge about the area's wines. We lunched and had our first tasting right afterward at... More

It's great to learn that you enjoyed our Queenstown Wine & Culture tour. We do add some extras such as the visit to Arrowtown if times permits it. But we are very pleased to learn that you liked the smaller boutique vineyards we visit on our wine tour. thank you so much for sharing your views. More

We took the canyon tour as an optional excursion AATKings offered. We were picked up promptly at our hotel, we stopped and picked up four other people from another group and we're off to the canyon. The driver (Graham) was excellent and entertaining, the scenery breathtaking, and the ride comfortable. The wine and cheese was a nice touch and made... More

We were the only two people booked in for the wine tour on the day, so we were very luck to have a private wine tour with our fantastic guide - Wofly! He was very knowledgeable about the area and the wines and had great rapport with the staff at the wineries. We received great service from everyone! The food... More

I booked myself and a friend on the wine tour (not skippers canyon combo) and as our guide picked us up we found out we were the only two booked on! Private tour - result!

We had a lovely half a day in Skippers canyon with great guide Wolfy! Scenery of the mountains and river are magnificent and Wolfy knows every single spot and angle where to stop and make the best pictures. This is not just a sitting in the car thing, but there are small distances to walk and enjoy the scenery. What... More
