On Tuesday my partner and I boarded the TSS Earnslaw to Walter Peak Farm
On Tuesday my partner and I boarded the TSS Earnslaw to Walter Peak Farm, once we there we got a warm welcome and took us around the farm after we had an amazing BBQ lunch and the views were something else. We definitely had a great day and there’s no problem for us not doing it again.
Bost was great
Bost was great, I'd been meaning to take this trip on my last couple of visits. We love being on the water and the old steamer is something special. The farm tour was fun, probably the only disappointment was the lunch venue. The advertising indicated alfresco dining with views back to Queenstown. Had we known the outdoor area was being renovated, we would have given the lunch a miss.. it was nice food, but there are plenty of other options in this part of the world. I'd check with operators before including dining, that the venue is open and the experience is available.
All 10 of us had a great time thank you
All 10 of us had a great time thank you. Your counter staff at the Queenstown Office were extremely efficient and courteous. The professional waiting staff at Walter Peak (Chloe and Jeff) and our own wonderful antique table inside absolutely made the BBQ experience. With all those people on the 10 am boat the staff at Walter Peak made us feel special..difficult sometimes when there are so many people. I do think though that an Asian/Chinese interpreter around the food queues for the BBQ would be most helpful as the constant almost frenzied pushing in, particularly with elbows was unacceptable and could be controlled. Again thank you. We loved it.
