RedBalloon is your one-stop shop for experiences and curated gifts. We’re so confident you’ll love what you get from us, we’re offering this promise to you…
We want you to have the most enriching experience possible, so if this means swapping your jet boat experience for wine tasting then we’ve got you covered. Simply exchange online or contact our Customer Experience Team and we’ll do the work for you.
Not only do we handpick the best experiences for you, we also guarantee you’ll pay the same as you would buying direct from the experience provider. If you find the same experience advertised at a lower standard price on the same day by the same provider, simply take a screenshot of the experience advertised at the lower price and tell us within 30 days of your purchase and we’ll match it.
We understand life gets busy, which is why all vouchers and gift cards purchased have a 5-year expiry. The only exception to our expiry terms is if the experience has already been booked in. We honour the purchase price of our experiences for 18 months. If you book your experience after this time and the price of the experience increases you can either pay the difference or exchange it for another experience free of charge.
We know the trust consumers place in ratings and reviews is tied directly to authenticity. That’s why we use Bazaarvoice. We believe that reviews should represent the genuine, unbiased, and transparent opinion about the author’s experience with a product or service. Reviews are not altered in any way by anyone other than the original author — including corrections for spelling or grammar. Reviews are not filtered, edited, or deleted simply because they are negative or are lower-rated.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.
Stretch your legs and prepare to cycle the spectacular Otago Central Rail Trail, the oldest rail trail in the country, over four days. Pedal past vine-laced valleys, lush farmlands and eclectic towns, and experience firsthand the famous hospitality of the South Island along the way.
Surrounded by stunning landscapes and steeped in 'southern hospitality,' the Otago Central Rail Trail is a fantastic journey on two wheels. There's no need to be a lycra-clad cycling machine during this cycling adventure, as you'll be riding on well graded, traffic-free paths. Begin your journey in Queenstown, where you'll be picked up at 8am and escorted to the start of the trail. Expect to pedal past a diverse range of landscapes including verdant plains, farmland, rolling hills and vineyards, and cross over numerous bridges and viaducts. You'll also cycle through small gold-mining towns like Alexandra, Omakau, Wedderburn and Hyde, and experience authentic South Island hospitality at local taverns along the way.
Minimum of one and maximum of 12 participants.
The average New Zealand temperature decreases as you travel south. January and February are the warmest months. July is the coldest month of the year.
