I did a half-day climb with Paul & was fortunate (from my point of view) to not have anyone else on the tour. Thankfully they didn't cancel as this was my last day in Queenstown so I wouldn't have been able to go at another time. I have a little climbing experience but I'm certainly not an expert but Paul...

Just wanted to get away from the crowds, do some climbing and relax for a day during our stay in Queenstown. Contacted Zach and lined up a day, they provide all the gear and timing to suit. ( I had my own shoes but they had the gear) Hooked up with Cam on the day who was very knowledgeable about... More

We had an awesome day out with Climbing Queenstown. We went out on a private trip with Zach and Jess - both were terrific. We had a range of skills and interest in our group and they did a great job accommodating everyone. They were incredibly well trained and safety conscious-- I also really appreciated that they taught the kids... More

This is my first negative review and my only bad experience in New Zealand. We booked a via ferrata trip for Feb 11 as part of a combo with Ziptrek. The combo booking was through Ziptrek and was confirmed by Ziptrek on December 20th. On Jan 31 we emailed Climbing Queenstown to get details on what clothes to wear, etc.... More

Hi, I'm really sorry to hear about this experience. It is disappointing that you weren't quickly and clearly communicated with. Due to the injuries of key personnel, there was a period with no management in place to operate. We have subsequently transferred management to a new director and parent company. We certainly have a view for this to improve our... More

This company offers various climbing experiences, including a Via Ferrata. I'd never heard of one of these before so I decided to give it a try. It's basically like climbing, but there are metal rungs and handholds in the rock that you use to climb. It may not sound like a huge challenge, but I found it scarier and more... More

Had such an amazing time climbing at Arawata Terrace! Cam was a super guide and was very patient and helpful with the routes. The view from the crag is absolutely beautiful as well. In the full day climb we did about 6 routes, which was plenty! My fingers were shot by the end of the day. Cam also went over... More

My husband and I did the morning Via Ferrata with Paul. Not only was Paul very friendly, he made sure both of us were very comfortable and confident with the climb. It was a great experience with beautiful views! We had the chance to do the abseil at the end which was so much fun!

Our group was new to Via Ferrata but the instructor Paul did a superb job helping us scale the cliffs and enjoy the glories of Queenstown from a new vantage point. Highly recommended!
