"We flew into Queenstown with incredible views of New Zealand’s Southern Alps. The next day we could not have had better skiing conditions, and the activities were a blast; Jet boating, Gondola ride and luge track. In all the trip cannot be explained in any other terms than spectacular. We are already lining up for next year. A massive thank you to the team at Educating Adventures for making it an enormous success and an experience I shall never forget."
