Based In Queenstown

Based In Queenstown

Queenstown is situated on the shores of Lake Wakatipu in the Southern Lakes region of New Zealand. A popular tourist destination for visiting families with plenty to see and do. The climate is moderate with temperatures sometimes reaching 30 °C in summer. The snow in the winter remains mainly on the mountains. At 310 meters above sea level the occasional snow coverage in the valley is infrequent and of short duration.

Coronet Peak and Remarkables are the nearest ski resorts. The ski season typically starts early June to early October. Queenstown Ice Arena is open from
April through to mid October. Other all year round activities include, jet boating, rafting, bungy jumping, bowling, sightseeing, hiking, mountain biking, luge rides, lake walks and vineyard tours. Many of these activities cater for children.

There are numerous dining options. Popular family restaurants include Lone Star, Winnie Bagoes, Fergburger, Sombreros, Public Kitchen & Bar and many more. For the most incredible view of the Remarkables range a visit to the Skyline Restaurant is a must.

Tots on Tour is conveniently located near Queenstown’s international airport.

Around The Clock Childcare

Around The Clock Childcare

Tots On Tour Babysitting was previously known as Around The Clock Childcare (ATCC). It is still under the same ownership. Bringing ATCC under the same brand as Tots On Tour now means you can find all your equipment and babysitting hire in one place.

When hiring a babysitter you will receive a notification confirming the rate specific to the number of children you have booked. You can check the details on the notification to make sure everything is correct. We will then contact you to confirm your booking. We ensure the babysitter allocated has the relevant experience to match the needs of your child/ren. The babysitter’s profile with photo and contact details is sent to you the day before your booking. The same booking confirmation is given to your babysitter. This ensures the same information is shared with all parties. Payment is made directly to your babysitter at the end of each booked date in $NZ cash.
