About Us

Designer Days – Professional Queenstown Tour Operators

Queenstown Wine Trail Logo

Designer Days and its parent company Queenstown Wine Trail Ltd  have been operating for 27 years and over this time we have established relationships with niche and unique suppliers enabling us to tailor-make a variety of experiences sometimes not accessible to the general public.

We have hosted many groups, typically who have a passion for great wine, food and sightseeing of the area. We also love to customise tours to include biking to the vineyards, or walking on the river trails in Gibbston Valley. Craft beer and Distillery tours are also becoming popular.

New Zealand and Australian work incentives and conference organisers  come to us directly , or travel agents and travel planners contact us often far in advance to plan their travel groups coming to Queenstown. We then send out detailed itineraries with pricing with all attention to detail taken care of. 

Queenstown Wine Trail is proudly family-owned. Lance and Heather have formed strong local relationships, and local knowledge converts to a quality experience for all tour clients. They are well supported by a creative team who deliver to a high standard. You can expect a friendly, personalised day with the best in the business.


We offer a fleet of 5 high quality modern vehicles, catering from couples to our optimised group sizes of less than 20 people.  We do the flexibility of using several vehicles for larger groups.

All transfers are included in our Designer Days, picking up and dropping off from your Hotel door.

Helicopter transfers and Jet Boat rides can also be part of your experience.
