After making a spectacular alpine landing, you will have time for photos amidst the dramatic mountain surrounds that form a stunning backdrop to the Central Otago wine region. From there, you'll be met upon landing by your expert wine guide who will continue to give you expert knowledge of the region whilst chauffeuring you by road to various wineries.  The tour includes an optional visit to a picturesque, historic gold mining town (Arrowtown) and courtesy pickup and drop-off in Queenstown.
