A fun trip to Glenorchy and Paradise

We had a great time with the half day tour run by Altitude Tour. We went for the morning tour where there were not many visitors all along the way. Thanks to the tour guideTania who are so humorous and passionate for her job. It was her explanation for the locations where LOTR were filmed which make this trip so interesting and amusing. We may not be able to identify these locations if we drove by ourselves. The scenery was magnificent along the way from Queenstown to Glenorchy and Paradise. Great work Tania and we hope that your dream will come true soon. : )
