What did I like best? Queenstown Marathon. Many choices of adventurous day trips surrounding Queenstown, such as Milford Sound scenic boat tour, Routeburn Trail 1 day hike, Gibbston Trail bike ride from Arrowtown to Gibbston Valley Winery.
Queenstown is a very picturesque place with many things to do. Jacqui is very familiar with both Auckland and Queenstown so was very helpful in thinking about what to do. Thought the marathon was very well organized and beautiful. Would do this trip again
