We were Mark's last group before he was leaving Queenstown (eventually heading back to the US after travelling through Thailand a bit) & we thoroughly enjoyed having him as our guide. He "showed us the ropes," literally, & made our experience well worth the money. It was our 1st time doing actual rock climbing & he made it easier than... More

Knowledgeable, experienced and attentive guide Mark that cater to my every need for a one in a lifetime experience. I lucked out and just happened to book a trip where the other guests backed out at the last minute. As an intermediate indoor climber, I wanted something both challenging and serene. Boy did my guide deliver! He eased me into... More

Was hyped about the experience considering all I've done before was indoor climbing. The whole experience was great and I learned I got to cleanup on my technique, but it left me wanting to do more later. Would come back again next time I visit Queenstown.

Last week we did a half day rock climb with our three kids - 9, 11 & 14. None of them had done any outdoor climbing before and they all had an absolute blast. Mark, our guide, was fantastic. He challenged the kids, but made them feel really safe and secure as well. They each did three different climbs, plus... More

We had a great day with our guide Mark, who was extremely supportive and knowledgable and despite being inexperienced, we were able to climb much further than we thought! Would recommend to anyone regardless of experience!

First time climbing outdoors and loved every minute! Mark was a great instructor and found the best spots to accomodate the not so good weather. Learnt a lot and would definitely go again.

Enjoyed the climbing. It was great to have 1 guide, Scott, for our family of 4. He kept us all climbing for the whole time. When we mastered the easier climbs Scott set up more challenging ones. Close to Queenstown (perhaps a little too close) but challenging climbing for all of us. Thanks.

I had a really great day getting to climb some local crags and learning some new techniques. I climb regularly at an indoor gym but on my day with Climbing Queenstown I got to put my skills to use in the outdoors and I got to learn how to lead climb. Overall a great day and one of my favourite... More

I arrived in Queenstown travelling with my parents, husband, 1-year old and 4 grown-up, but younger siblings. I was obviously looking to make the most of our time in Queenstown, and Zach and Paul made it possible. Zach was amazing to talk with. He was able to work with me to figure out which find activities and adventures would best... More

I went on the half-day rock-climbing. Paul was my guide and it was the perfect mix of challenging and exhilarating! He carefully chose climbs to slowly increase difficulty and gave me pointers where necessary, but also space to figure out the climb myself. Definitely recommend!
