Lord of Rings

Great and interesting Suggest a visual before we look at the location in A TV in the coach to have matching experience. After the tour those who post the picture requested to show the guide . Those posted be given a token complement on Lord of Rings theme

An Amazing Experience

The tour was beyond amazing the 2 guides we had, Shane and Fabio, we both very knowledgeable, and made the whole tour alot of fun. We were only a small group of 3 which made the experience even better because we got to enjoy alot more for our time! Thanks so much for the experience and I would reccomend this to any Lord of the Rings fan and even people who love to feel apart of our filmography history! Cheers Ryan

LOTR Tour

I had an awesome time on this tour. I am a big LOTR fan and found it so exciting to visit shooting locations, find out some cool facts, and of course, dress up! We had a small group that got close over the course of the afternoon. I would recommend to anyone with a bit of interest! Even if you know nothing about LOTR, you will have a great time... :) ~~ Kudos to Shane- great guide!

Glad I didn't pay full price

Whilst the trip was not all bad I would have been very disappointed if I had to pay the full price of $170 for this trip. There were 8 people on the trip and I assumed the other six people on the trip paid the full price. We only paid the bookme price of $70 each. All we did on the trip was go to one end of the Arrowtown river, driven to the other end of the river and then driven up to a lookout where we could see the Gibbston Winery and the AJ Hackett Bungy. The guide provided a lot of information on the Lord of the Rings from filming, cast and history/background of the writer and director. All of which I can only assume was correct and not just made up.

Excellent

The tour was great. Lot of locations of Middle Earth. Our guide Shane was very knowledgeable and made us enjoy the experience. He made a lot of photos of us in all the locations and playing with the swords. A lot of information about the filming of the movies and funny facts. Highly recommended.
