    Great day

    Louise was a very enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide. We weren't extreme LOTR fans but she made it all come alive and I will now watch the DVDs again knowing where scenes were filmed. Lunch was great at the Glenorchy hotel and needless to say the views around Glenorchy and Paradise are magical.

    Wealth of interesting info!

    Louise (the tour guide from Scotland) is amazing, slightly crazy, but amazing! She knew everything you could imagine about Lord of the Rings and more - about the cast, crew and locations (where they loved to eat, pranks they played on set, crew that became actors and vice versa and every little detail about the locations we visited! Lunch was great too! Overall a fantastic day and a worthy experience when visiting Queenstown!

    Well worth doing!!

    Our tour guide, Louise, was the most enthusiastic, & knowledgable person to conduct this tour. She had a constant stream of stories about the filming, that even I found interesting. (I only went along for the scenery, which was beautiful, asI have no interest in L of R) My husband rated her commentary as "excellent". We had scenic stops along the way, & Louise even accommodated my interest in taking photos of the lambs. Lunch at Glenorchy Hotel was great. Good food, & a chance to chat to the others on the tour. Be prepared to arrive back in Queenstown later than expected. Simply because Louise was so full of information,& also was very patient with any of us who spent longer taking photos.
