We were lucky enough to have a fine, sunny day when we recently travelled on the SS Earnslaw to Walter Peak Farm. My husband was fascinated by the steam engine on board the ship and I enjoyed the magnificent scenery along the way. Our Guide was most informative and entertaining when demonstrating both the sheep shearing and dog mustering techniques and our morning tea of scones and date loaf was made all the more enjoyable by the beautiful views from the old farm house verandah. I found Real Joirneys to be a most efficient Tour Company with all the tours we did with them during our stay in Queenstown. It is such a beautiful place to visit we are already planning our next trip.Reviewed by: Catherine B, January 2014

Everything perfect, staffs were so wonderful :)

Loved the steamship!!! Nice ride over and back. Great time to relax, ride a part of history, and take lot's of pictures. The Farm was great. I grew up on a farm and it was a treat to check one out in NZ. Great guides at the Farm and the afternoon tea was very nice. The sheep dog demonstration was amazing!!! The new litter of puppies were adorable.Reviewed by: Verne C, April 2013
This is amazing trip, we have wonderful timeReviewed by: tum, January 2013
It was a very nice tour with the old steamer. The farmer told us about the farm and showed who to cut a sheep. That was very interresting as well as to see his little dog gather sheep.
The afternoon tea was nice. We had a few small showers but most of the day was clear.
We really enjoyed the farm tour. The cruise would have been better if the weather would have been warmer and less wet.Reviewed by: Karen F, January 2013
