    “Great great and excellent tour” TripAdviser

  • Fantastic tours with great local knowledge ” My mum and I recently visited Queenstown, and joined a half day Arrowrown tour with Remarkable Scenic Tours, as we didn't have access to a car. We were picked up by husband and wife duo Wayne and Kathy, who were extremely friendly and professional, and had incredible local knowledge (Wayne grew up in NZ). We had such a great time in picturesque Arrowtown, that we decided to do another full day tour with Wayne, that he was kind enough to customize based on what we liked. We were then able to explore some more 'local' towns, amazing wineries, cheese shops, chocolate shops, bungee/zip line, and even the snow! My mum and I sincerely recommend Remarkable Scenic Tours for anyone looking to explore New Zealand a little more beyond the standard tourist traps. Thanks again Kathy and Wayne - we'll see you next time!

  • We did a couple of tours over two days. Wayne was our guide both times. We went to Arrowtown and Wanaka. The scenery was amazing with plenty of time to take photos. Explored the towns and a few wineries along the way. Wayne was very welcoming and knowledgeable about the area. Definitely recommended.
