Had a wonderful day with Wayne touring to Wanaka, Cromwell, Cardrona and Arrowtown and many interesting stops along the way to take in the sights and for photo opportunities. We stopped for morning tea which is included in the tour, at a great little place in Cromwell. We stopped for a while at Wanaka, then on to Cardrona and the historic pub which you just have to visit! It is a fantastic watering hole and we were shouted a beverage at this stop too!
Arrowtown is an historic mining town, now a very up market residential town. Here you can pan for gold in the river, see the restored Chinese miner's camp and learn a bit of their history. Can recommend the Bakery!
These tours carry only a small group, on this one max of 11 but we were five in our tour, which made for a great day.
Our guide Wayne was very friendly and entertaining, providing a great commentary of the places we visited. As we Aussies say, he is a great bloke!
I would highly recommend Wayne and his tours to anyone visiting Queenstown. They will pick you up and drop you off at your accommodation which is very convenient.

Booked a tour of Arrowtown & Wanaka to escape the business of Queenstown and wanted to get out and see the surrounding area. Our guide was Wayne who was very friendly, have lots of local tips and kept us well looked after. A highlight was definitely the Crown Range, covered in snow and then the beautiful town of Wanaka that has some of the best views ever. Fantastic day out that exceeded our expectations and would recommend highly.
We had limited time in NZ & thus, we did our research online prior to coming over. We booked the tour via email & the process was smooth & hassle-free.
On the day of the tour, we met Wayne who was our guide. Wayne was punctual, and best of all, he was warm & friendly, which made the tour even more enjoyable. We took the Arrowtown-Wanaka half day tour and with Wayne as your guide, one really can't go wrong. He was informative yet entertaining and he took us to the best places to see the sights in the short time we had. Definitely a plus in our books! :)
