I enjoyed this activity. Our 2 lovely lady guides (I forgot their names) were fantastic. I wish I had more time. Could have done the bungee, too.

This was excellent, I chose the 2 line tour, it was great fun without being too thrilling. The drop at the end was unexpected, it was a great thrill. Hosts JAck (England) and Toby (NZ) were lovely, informative, and very safety conscious. Fabulous adventure, highlly recommend it.

Hello, the Zip line tour was fun, zipping through the tree line is a different experience and a good way to test yourself. I would suggest you try it, the first time for doing anything like this always has a wow factor with it. The guides were fun and informative about the environment we were in. I suggest that if you can walk the track up to the top as the walk is worth doing and I appreciated the whole experience much more. Alan

Great experience! Highly recommended. This is a fun, thrilling activity for all ages. The two guides that go with you are well trained so you feel safe throughout the experience and also give insight into the area. If you can I'd recommend the 6- Line tour which finishes with steep line drop at the end, but there is a bit of a trek to that last one through the Tiki Trail. Also bring a beanie and gloves as this can get chilly during the cooler months!

Sapphire and Rhys did an awesome job guiding our tour, but all the employees were super fun and friendly in general. We knew we were in capable hands the entire time. Would recommend this to other travelers.

Ziplining is so much fun and the views here in Queenstown make this a great place to do it. Especially loved the world's steepest zipline and the different tricks they gave you as options to do. Our guides, Fran and Jenn I think, from Canada and Chili, were professional and friendly. Towards the end there is a trek through the woods, about 10-15 minutes, that is a pretty steep decline, not good for person's with physical limitations.

This was a really fun, beautiful and well run tour. We would definitely recommend it!

Do the 6 line tour, you will not regret it and do not need any zip lining experience. The guides will take care of all the zip line related tasks. All you've got to do is throw yourself off one tree house and enjoy the ride to the next! Guides will also provide a lot of interesting information about the environment, plant life, the way they built their tree houses. Don't miss out on some of the most breath taking views in Queenstown that you can only get during this tour!

loved the tour. our guides were awesome. beautiful views. only downside is you have to pay for the gondola ride and they charge you for both ways even though you only need to use the gondola to go up. kinda lame.

Excellent short duration trip in Queenstown! The zipline courses were tons of fun and offered some fantastic views of the city of Queenstown and Lake Wakatipu. Our tours guides Boone and Elias were fantastic guides not only for taking you through the zipline courses but also offering interesting information about Queenstown ecology and preservation in New Zealand. Would highly recommend this trip for a little bit of thrill seeking!

The most awesome thing I have ever done. It was so much fun that I purchased the two additional zips since I only book the 4 beginning ones. I even turned upside down during one. The guides were the best and they made me feel very comfortable!

Great time! The guides, Lily and Naomi, were great - helpful, friendly, professional! I had only ziplined one other time and this was different in that the guides did the breaking for you so less stress, more safety, and more carefree focus on the thrill. Thee was a variety of lengths and height drops on the 6 lines and a long hike between the last two lines. A bit muddy given recent rain, but the views were spectacular. They boast the last line is the steepest n the world, and my inexperience prevents any dispute from me. The tour does not include the gondola ride up. I highly recommend you include this tour in your trip to Queenstown.

Tons of fun with great tour guides. Learned a lot too about the environment and the area around Queenstown. Be aware of a mile or so long hike to get out of the woods when you are finished zip lining, but they did provide poles to help with the treck.

This is an absolutely must do for everyone visiting Queenstown. My son who was 6 at the time and I had a fantastic experience with adrenaline pumping excitement and breathtaking views. Our guides were brilliant and very child friendly. Since arriving home we have not stopped raving about our amazing experience with the guys and girls from Ziptrek Queenstown.
