Wearing high-tech snowshoes that feel as if you’re floating across the snow, you can hike at your leisure and explore snow-covered ‘back country’ wilderness, as well as a gourmet picnic lunch with a selection of beverages and warm, mulled local win.

Our Dream Wedding

From very first contact with Lee, I knew I had FINALLY found what I was looking for. Planning an overseas wedding proved difficult with all correspondence via email. I was about to give up! Then I was recommended Alpine Luxury Tours! We chose to have a 5 hr private tour as apart of our wedding day. Our tour was well thought out, the experience made our wedding extra special and definitely memorable. All our guest had an incredible day. No matter what your occasion, Alpine Luxury Tours will make your trip extra special. We cannot wait to go back!!

Great coordination, highly flexible, travel in comfort

We actually had multiple days with Alpine Luxury Tours. Jamie was our driver/host on all 3 days. We were a small group so it was very easy to discuss our destinations. We did the wine tour (slight changes due to the weather), Tasman glacier hike/helo ride, and Dart river jetboat ride/Arrowtown tour. Separate reviews were done for those specific events. Alpine Luxury Tours provided us with lunch for certain events, transport to/ from activities and narration along our routes. Many thanks to Jamie who made our vacation a truly memorable visit.

Simply Spectacular

Such stunning scenery at Middle Earth!!! What a spectacular place to visit, the Middle Earth waterfalls is one of New Zealand's best things to do! The glacier, waterfalls, alpine flowers/moss all add up to make this not only a unique experience, but was quite awe inspiring too. Lee was amazing to deal with, going out of his way to ensure that we could go on this helicopter flight..... firstly cancelled due to Covid in March 2020, and then due to weather. An amazing experience shared with family. Would absolutely recommend this fantastic opportunity to you all.

A magic 48hrs

Fantastic! Lee is an absolute pro, every detail is taken care of and you are guaranteed a super comfortable, enjoyable experience. You can tell he's a local and really loves the area, his insider knowledge adds value to the trip and helped ensure we made the most of every moment. And to top it off he's a bloody good bloke! I'll be on the phone to book him in again if I'm lucky enough to spend more time in Central Otago.
