West Coast: Eco River Safari in UNESCO World Heritage Area
- Private group
- Duration: 2 hours
Tour was a little pricey but worth it for fans of Lord Of The Rings. One will have better appreciation of tour if the trilogy was reviewed before the trip to Queenstown. Destinations were picturesque. I went on a rainy day but umbrellas were conveniently provided. Ben, the tour guide was very pleasant and knowledgeable about the destinations. The activity when participants get to wear costumes and pose for pictures was fun but the costumes were a bit stinky and probably would need more frequent washing/cleaning. The snack served in the Glenorchy shack was yummy and was perfect with hot tea.
We really enjoyed this tour. Our tour guide, Joel, was friendly and funny. It was informative and complete with visual aids from the movie. And we were allowed to go where other tour companies weren't allowed to go, which was a plus. Highly recommend.
Very knowledgeable - you learn not only about movie scene locations but about New Zealand itself! This is a great tour - don’t hesitate to go even if you are not a fan of the movies!
