You tour begins with pick up from your accommodation and the you'll drive to the charming Arrowtown. You'll walk among tiny restored cottages and become enchanted with the historic buildings of this town that was the site of the Gold Rush in 1860s.
You'll also make your way to Wanaka; a gorgeous town that has made a name for itself as a trendy eco resort town.

That’s 10% of the Australian population! When we started ‘doing’ experiences in 2001, Facebook didn’t exist; the iPod had just been invented; John Howard was Prime Minister; and Destiny's Child were popular (yikes!). We’ve been at this business of experiences for quite a while, so put your trust in us to show you a good time.
