• FAQ

    • What is your cancellation and refund policy?

      If you cancel at least 7 day(s) in advance of the scheduled departure, there is a 15% cancellation fee. If you cancel between 3 and 6 day(s) in advance of the scheduled departure, there is a 50 percent cancellation fee. If you cancel within 2 day(s) of the scheduled departure, there is a 100 percent cancellation fee.

    • Can our children come on tour?

      Your children are welcome on the Pioneer's Trail (historic gold rush tour) or by arrangement on a Unique Private tour; however children are not permitted on The Thirsty Traveller (craft beer and distillery tour)

    • What happens if I miss the pick-up, or I'm not ready when you arrive...or I simply can't go anymore?

      Oh dear, now that would be sad! We can't really wait for you due to the timing of the tours. Check with your booking agent regarding refund policies.

    • How about if I am late back to any of the pick-up points while I'm on tour with you?

      We would hate to leave you behind. We'll make every effort to find you, but we do need to depart at the designated times. If we can't locate you, there are buses and taxi services back to Queenstown, but you'll need to arrange these and cover the costs yourself.

    • How comfortable are the tour vehicles?

      Very! Our vehicles are modern (2015 model European custom tour vans) and have large viewing windows and comfortable seats. We have 6 and 11 seater options.

    • Can I tip the tour guide?

      If you had a great time during your tour and would like to express that to your tour guide, a tip is certainly very much appreciated.
