An absolutely awesome way to spend time in a truly incredible location. Laura was the perfect host. I can’t think of anything that could have made the experience better.

Our experience with Laura was nothing short of perfect. If you’re looking for something unique to do in Queenstown, this has to be it. Unbeatable host, absolutely spectacular location, fun activities, value for money is massively skewed in your favour, and a legendary dog. Hands...More
