  • Would highly recommend this tour company, we just did the $49, 2.5 hour trip to Arrowtown, very friendly the van was spotless and very comfortable enough room to stand. This company can also organise private tours. Kathy was very prompt and had loads of local info to share with the group. Nothing was to much of a problem Thanks again Kathy Jill

    "Personalised service” TripAdviser

  • Loved this couple of hours. Wonderful way to spend an afternoon before a flight home. Kathy gave an enjoyable commentary throughout and happily accommodated us by collecting and dropping us off at the hotel which was 15 minutes out of town. Really worth the small your cost. Thanks again.

    “Quick afternoon tour of Arrowtown” TripAdvisor

  • Our day started off on time. Greeted by Cathy we were promptly on our way toward Arrowtown to enjoy the sights on a beautiful morning. Our guide had a great passion for the environment and an extensive history of the area. Any questions you may have are of no problem and are answered honestly. Plenty of photo opportunities along the way. The trip duration is sufficient time and you are taken around the town first to learn a bit about the town and what it has to offer before you have the opportunity to enjoy the area yourself. Enjoyed a little morning tea and visited some fantastic novelty shops unique to Arrowtown. The Chinese village is a must see and gives you an insight to the history of gold panning and the raw truth about the people who resided here during the 1800s. The tour offers an 11 seater vehicle and is perfect for those wanting something more personal. I would recommend this company for those wanting a seamless visit to Arrowtown without the hassles of waiting for buses etc and people visiting briefly wanting to fit more in their day. Our driver on the way back was equally as informative . Shared a lot of laughs with these guides and would definitely hope others do too. The morning we went was incredible. It snowed the evening before and we were left with a Winter Wonderland. Awesome I can imagine any season of the year. A must do. Thank you for this experience. I wish we had heard of this company earlier to take advantage of the full day tour to Cardona Hotel and Wanaka. Perhaps in the future. All the best.
