It was really easy and organised logically, we found the Real Journeys office really easy and they printed off our tickets right away. The boat ride was nice with good scenery and photo opportunities. The farm was such a great experience, the animals were so cute and friendly and our guide was very good at giving us explanations about the sheep shearing. We had a small group on the farm tour which was good, most people went to the BBQ lunch but I was more than happy getting to feed the animals and getting some cute photos! We then got afternoon tea and the sultana scones were amazing!
I was also going to book a milford sound tour but unfortunately after I booked and paid I realised that it clashed with something else I already booked that I couldn't change. Real journeys were so nice and understanding, they allowed me to cancel it and get a refund. Saved me so much stress!

Real journeys and Walter Peak are great people to deal with, thank you!

$79 per adult is a little expensive but for us it was the perfect trip on a beautiful sunny day. We had a tour of the farmfed animals, saw sheep shearing, delicious high tea (unlimited), walked through rose gardens. And all this after a ride on a vintage steamboat to and from Queenstown. I would do this again over any of the Milford Sound trips!

Great views of Lake Wakatipu, very big steamship but a lot of tourists. Can be quite pricey but the buffet lunch was yummy with good quality food.

This WOULD have been a beautiful cruise had it not been booked with twice as many people as what should have been on the tour. You were squeezed onto the boat (which is a large boat...there were just so many people) where you jostled for a seat, off the boat and off to the farm tour. This would have been good if we could have found a seat (none left) and been able to see. This was followed by a morning tea where everyone was grabbing at the food afraid they were going to miss out because there were so many people. Then it was time to go. Another stream of people came off one end of the returning boat and were squeezed back on the other end. We called it the sausage factory! Very disappointing for the amount of money we paid!

A little twee old fashioned (although historical) commentary over the top. Too many rude brunettes. For the over 80's.
