Your day begins leisurely, you will get picked up by your tour driver from your Queenstown accommodation and set off on a scenic drive past the Shotover River. Back in the Gold Rush era, this was the richest gold bearing river in the world, now, however, it is associated with the famous Shotover Jet Boat. You'll continue on past Coronet Peak Ski field, stunning Dalefield farms and the world class resort of Milbrook.

Once you're in Arrowtown, you will drive past the Chinese Village, the old Goal and the scenic lookout; your guide providing informative commentary and pointing out the best photo opportunities along the way, of course! You'll get out to stretch your legs on Main St and enjoy a 90 minute free-time session where you can explore the town - everything is in walking distance! You can take advantage of your 10% discount on entry to the Lakes District Museum and Art Gallery to peruse some interesting exhibitions or browse in the local shops.

You'll also get to stop at Lake Hayes, more commonly referred to as 'the mirror lake' for gorgeous photos of the pristine lake and the surrounding mountains. Get back into the tour vehicle and enjoy the drive back to Queenstown.
