Awesome scenic drive

Even though the weather was not at its best we had an enjoyable drive thanks to our host Erik who was certainly very friendly and knowledgeable and off course entertaining with his jokes Perhaps I should have seen Lord of the rings again before going on the tour so I could relate to where the scenes were shot...our afternoon tea was pleasant and we still managed to capture some very beautiful photos...overall a lovely afternoon out

Glenorchy and Paradise tour

It is really breath taking view. I love it so much. But this altitude company have a false advertising when it comes to The Lord of the rings brochure, it's not included. We did not visit the lord of the ring place, not good.

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. : )

Best Tour from Queenstown!

This tour was absolutely fantastic. Our guide Andy was so knowledgeable about the area and also the Lotd of the Rings. He was an absolutely fantastic guy who went out of his way to make the experience top notch. The scenery on this tour is a must for anyone visiting Queenstown. I’m not a huge LOTR fan but I really enjoyed the whole tour. The food and drink supplied was delicious too. I give this tour a 10 out of 10.
