Great Day (Queenstown Wine and Cardrona Distillery Tour)

Our family of four booked a wine tour with Lee in late December 2019. Lee was extremely flexible and responsive to our group - his kind and friendly demeanor made the tour seem more like a day out with a friend rather than a tour. The tour (ie Lee) was full of interesting information, laughs and friendly exchange coupled with excellent locations to visit - the day was excellent from start to finish. Thank you, Lee!!1

Tour of a Lifetime! (Untouched back country heli tour

My husband and I did the "Untouched Heli and Hike Tour" and it was absolutely the highlight of our entire trip. The crew was is top notch, which made the experience even better. Highly recommend any tour which will take your to the Middle Earth Waterfalls, this by far was the most amazing place / landscape i have ever seen. You got chills walking through this area! It was out of this world! Thanks again Lee for the amazing tour! If we are ever in Queenstown again, I know we'll be in touch!

Amazing trip to Milford Sound

Steve was a fantastic host and driver. Every part of the trip to Milford ran to time. Steves timing was impeccable resulting in crowd free stops at spectacular stops along the way. The drive included very informative commentary about features along the way as well as interesting history and modern interruptions related to NZ. The lunch provided was delicious. I would recommend alpine luxury tours to anyone wanting the personal touch to a tour whilst being kept informed along the way and have a bit of a laugh.

Wow!!! What an outstanding day

We have fallen in love with Queenstown after this tour. Lee is so knowledgeable and passionate about the area and adding his passion for gold mining and vast historical knowledge of the area we had an unbelievable personal Queenstown experience. We drove down into Skippers canyon and were surprised with a delicious morning tea at the school house. This was followed by panning for gold at deep creek and a stone skimming competition. Both Lee and Paul were so amazing with our young children (both pre school) that this was their highlight (as well as ours) of the trip. Highly recommend Alpine Luxury Tours to anyone. AMAZING........
