Jet boating and sightseeing tours rolled together in one.
Really great experience. Not just a high-quality jet boat ride on a beautiful stretch of the Shotover River, but a beautifully narrated sightseeing tour and history of Queenstown at the same time. Sets this tour aside from other jet boating tours by far.
Would 100% recommend doing this tour. You get a lot done in the time without feeling rushed at all.
Great tour guides. Bus driver Bob was amazing. Very knowledgeable and operating like a well-oiled machine. Felt very safe and organised. This is a fun tour, with good photo opportunities and the jetboat was super fun. I would highly recommend going for the price.
Had a great time
Had a great time. The bus drive there was just as good as the boat trip. We got the 8:30 am tour and it was only about a handful of people which made it extra special. Definitely wear a raincoat and bring a jumper. Thanks for the lovely tour. New Zealand is tops.
