I love that this cruise is not crowded, just enough number of people that we can move around and take pictures. The view was amazing but the temperature was cold for summer. A thicker jacket is definitely needed because of the wind and some parts of the lake relatively colder than queenstown area. Overall it was a pleasant experience

I thoroughly enjoyed the tour on the lake. The scenery was magnificent. We enjoyed the commentary especially about the geological facts. Interesting facts about the surrounding properties. We also had a very nice cheese board. I would recommend this tour.
