For a unique wedding experience, Southern Lakes Limousines & Taxis takes pleasure in adding that little extra to your very special day: bonnet ribbons, floral display, white seat covers, individually coloured champagne glasses and a most attentive 'gofer' to tend to your every need - safety pin for that small dress mishap? - clothing brush for the groom? And after the reception, we're happy to provide post-reception transfers for you and your guests.

Although most of our weddings are in Cromwell, Clyde, Alexandra, Queenstown and Wanaka, we've been as far as Tekapo and Middlemarch.

Wine Tours
Personalised wine tours with the freedom to choose your own itinerary. Treat yourself to a relaxing time sampling the unique wines of Central Otago, New Zealand's fastest growing, and the world's southernmost, wine making region.

Southern Lakes Limousines & Taxis operate no fixed tours as our service is tailored to your desires. Some clients know exactly which wineries they wish to visit and where to have lunch; others are happy to let us make recommendations based on what we learn from them, and then there are those who enjoy a blend of both. All tours are flexible and readily adapted, with start and finish times to suit.

What is your wish? A half day tour of a few select wineries with lunch, or a full day 8 hour tour, visiting up to 9 wineries, with a platter? We know the area well, have visited over 30 wineries in Central Otago, from Wanaka to Queenstown, the Gibbston Valley, Cromwell, Clyde and Alexanrda, and will tailor one to suit. The choice is yours.
Milford Sound

Day Trip to Milford Sound: At Milford Sound there are cruise options from which to choose and, although the cost of the cruise is not included in our price, we are happy to book this for you.

The Ultimate Cruise Ship Package:
Day 1:
From Milford Sound travel through Fiordland National Park, with stops along the way. Pause in Te Anau to see the Takahe, New Zealand's largest flightless bird and our Southernmost Kauri trees. Continue through farmland devoted mainly to deer, sheep and cattle, for sightseeing around Queenstown, before arriving at your accommodation in Cromwell.

Day 2:
This day is set aside to relax whilst visiting some of the many wineries to be found in Central Otago, have a relaxing lunch, visit Alan Waters' unique Art Gallery and stroll round Old Cromwell Town. Whilst in Cromwell, receive complimentary transfers for local shopping and evening dinner transfers.

Day 3:
Your first stop is the Central Gourmet Galleria in Clyde. Then on to Alexandra, Roxburgh and the historic township of Lawrence. Reaching Dunedin, there is time for some sightseeing before joining your cruise at Port Chalmers.

Our Point of Difference: Having lived, travelled, hiked and climbed in the area for 23 years and, with an interest in the history of the Milford Road, Michael will bring a uniquely memorable and personal perspective to your journey.

Need a Driver? Should you prefer to sit back and enjoy a Day Trip to Milford Sound, while someone else drives, then Michael will be happy to do this for you.

Having spent all that time coming to Queenstown, it's time to sit back and relax to view the sights.

Enjoy a drive along the shores of Lake Wakatipu to the township of Glenorchy.

Take in the views from the Coronet Peak Road followed by a visit to picturesque Arrowtown with its Museum, shops, and restored Chinese Village.

Travel over the Crown Range (New Zealand's highest sealed public road - sorry, not in the limousine) to the Cardrona Hotel, carrying on to Wanaka with its Puzzling World and Transport and Toy Museums.
