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.

Stunning

Fantastic tour with funny, experienced & local guide Joe(l) - not sure about the name 😉 Due to bad weather our initial tour was cancelled but we could manage with Kate to join (or create) an afternoon tour (per WhatsApp - sooo easy). Bonus: we got an upgrade to the 4WD tour and it was awesome although we had not the best weather. Absolute recommendation to everybody. After the tour our guide recommended a bar in Queenstown with the best steaks and beers for a really fair Price - and again: totally worth it!! Thanks for that! The germans Stefanie & Martin

Fabulous!!

We had a ball with Ben! He was full of stories and facts about the filming of the Lord of the Rings and was very helpful when we get our bag at the bus stop! Ben knew how to take the best picture and now we have hilarious photos that our family loved! The scenery on this trip was amazing and there were plenty of scenic stops and photo opportunities. We’d also like to thank Kate for squeezing us into the afternoon tour when we missed the morning bus! Everyone was very professional, courteous, friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend them!

Cheers for the review Georgia We are stoked to have been able to get you on our tour. Kate was able to shuffle a few guests around to be able to fit you guys in!! No trip to Queenstown is complete until you have done a Pure Glenorchy Scenic Tour. Take care mate and we hope you found the bag lest at the Station Info centre, Kind Regards Joel

Really enjoyed the tour

Guide was attentive and knowledgable, making the afternoon a very enjoyable experience with lots of photo opportunities along the way. Afternoon tea was a treat. Would have loved tour to include LOTR character costumes for optional purchase for dress up in forest and take home as souvenirs.
