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 had the best guide!! He had so much enthusiasm and absolutely loves what he does. A fun filled half day. We saw the back drops of scenes used in filming the LOTR films, drove on an old gold mining road, drove on an old one lane gold mining equipment road through the mountains, panned for gold, and had morning tea riverside. We learned so much! Best half day tour of our month long trip.
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.
It was Awesome. I enjoy the breathtaking scenery. It is a must do for those who is going to visit Christchurch. Our tour guide, Mark, was impressive. He told us everything about the set of LOTR. Overall, Wownderful..
Great half day tour and Aaliyah was an awesome tour guide, even bringing the bug spray! Free time in Glenorchy and awesome dressing up time in Paradise made it a memorable trip. Thanks!
