A great day out

We had a rainy grey day when we set out. The tour guide Maria had a fantastic positive attitude that made our journey to mt Sunday sunny and bright. She had great energy and we had so much fun. The day brightened as we proceeded to the bottom of mt Sunday and by the time we were at the top we had blue skies & sunshine peeking through the cloud. We got the best of both worlds with some moody mountains with low cloud and then sunshine and blue skies with snow capped mountain views. So fun and stunning scenery.

Middle Earth comes to life

Micheal our guide was very informative with everything, about Christchurch, the area that we were travelling through, and of course Lord of the Rings. He did a fine job, particularly as he was battling the wind rather than the orcs. The weather, although a bit windy stayed bright so we could get the vistas and imagine Helm's Deep was only across the valley. We were even given props to re-enact the various characters from the film. All in all a great tour, which we thought was worth it with the discount by bookme.com, without, a bit pricey for a couple of stops and basic lunch, although nice. Micheal was great, he looked after his group, a good guide to guide you.

Great experience and incredible scene

It’s really an enjoyable experience to join this Lord of Ring trip. Being picked up from our apartment, we started our journey. The young guide we had is very passionate in his job. He gave us an extra stop to see the beautiful Windwhistle. We are very lucky to have had a sunny day. Along the way, the view are stunning. Green grass with the snow mountain at the far back, surrounded by the shining river. The Sunday Mountain is certainly a highlight of the trip. This is the place that you cannot drive in by yourself. There,you just have a feeling as if you are in the movie. Highly recommend !
