Unique and creative experience

The business owner was our host for the activity. He was very accommodating and made us feel very special following our engagement that day. Couldn't recommend this place more highly- great for all ages.

Amazing experience

It was such a great crafting afternoon. Beautiful relaxing place with friendly staff. Nick will lead you to make your own 100% natural products with their local honey. We enjoyed it very much and the best thing is you will bring home awesome scented honey goodies! Highly recommend!! :)

Get Crafting

Where else can you get stuck in and make yourself some natural products to take home?I made soap, lip balm and body butter. Had plenty of fun. Buzz Stop is such a special place. We only get to visit once a year when we do our Queenstown trip but it's something we always include. I cannot speak highly enough of this place. There are so many options available. We did this activity as a group of three. You get to choose three things to make and even better the lip balm and body butters go in a glass jar not plastic. Looks very professional and will make a great gift however I'm keeping mine. The soaps are my favourite. The mixture makes enough for three small soaps.

What a fantastic experience

We did both the beekeeping and honey spinning tour and the beeswax crafting session. Both were wonderful!! Great value for money, with a very knowledgeable guide and great take away souvenirs! A must do while in Queenstown!
