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.
Uncover the gems of Queen Charlotte Sound during this three hour nature cruise. Visit Kaipupu Wildlife Sanctuary where you'll spot little blue penguin nesting boxes, get up close to bush-clad Allports/Motu Ngarara Island and stop at the sheltered Double Cove marine reserve to feed tame fish.
Rich with island sanctuaries, thriving native birdlife, pristine waters and stunning beaches bound by native bush, Queen Charlotte Sound/Totaranui is a wonderful place to cruise through. Departing Picton, you will take in the gorgeous scenery that surrounds before visiting the Kaipupu Wildlife Sanctuary. Stroll around the easy 2.7km loop track and spot the little blue penguin nesting boxes and other native birdlife along the way. You'll also have the opportunity to get up close to Allports/Motu Ngarara Island, coated in nearly a century of regenerating native bush, whilst learning about its intriguing history, which included regular police raids in search of an illicit whiskey still. Then, stop off at the sheltered Double Cove marine reserve with a backdrop of picturesque native bush and feed the resident tame fish. A bagel with your choice of delicious Marlborough Regal salmon and cream cheese or jam is included.
