A wonderful tour with thr best guide ever

As a huge fan of LOTR movies I am very sceptic about these tours I already did several of them, but none had the power to amuse me. Except this one. This tour is amazing. Thr places and the guide Kate were excepcional. Going to remote places and be where the novies were shot, it's an excellent experience. When they do this with humor and great backgroung stories ot becomes really paradise for the movie fans. Thanks Kate for all. You made two brazillians really happy!

Fun and informative

Our guide Ben was really knowledgeable , not just about Lotr but about all aspects of Nz History and had wonderful bits of stories to tell on every moment of the tour. The journey itself is exquisite thanks to the mountain laden drive and the pretty lakes. The tour included a short stop for lunch at glenorchy. The actual scenes where LOTR was shot are amazing for someone who recalls the movie scenes. The most fun was in the roleplay in the forest. Thanks Ben. We will recommend this tour to everyone.

Great afternoon with Kate

My beautiful wife, two boys (11 &13) and I did the half day Lord of the Rings Scenic Tour with Kate. It was fantastic. Kate made us feel very comfortable from the very beginning. Her friendly and personal demeanour plus her knowledge of the area and its connection to the LOTRs was second to none. Having spent time skiing and paragliding, this tour was just what we needed to wind down and have some fun. And believe me there is laugh out loud fun to be had on this tour. The scenery takes your breath away. I found myself on more than one occasion spontaneously saying, "Wow." If you are in Queenstown, this tour is definitely a must.
