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.
Great fun! The added assist from the Ebike was great so you didn't have to worry about any hills and could enjoy yourself and the scenery. The tour guide was very conscious and courteous of asking how we were doing. Very friendly & knowledgeable guides. The scenery was fantastic and the winery was charming. Very much enjoyed the wine tasting.
Jenny was an awesome guide and took us to many of the Lord of the Rings film locations. We got to wear capes and hold weapons for some fun photos. Such beautiful country. It was a very bumpy ride in the jeep-type vehicle, but that was part of the adventure.
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.
