We had a great time on this tour. The guide was very welcoming and helpful, and had a great knowledge of the local area. The commentary on the bus was also great and really insightful. We had a really good time in Glenorchy and at the scenic lookout. Definitely worth it!

Jenny was an awesome guide and took us to many of the Lord of the Rings film locations. We got to wear capes and hold weapons for some fun photos. Such beautiful country. It was a very bumpy ride in the jeep-type vehicle, but that was part of the adventure.

Tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. Was not a 'canned' presentation. She made it conversational. If you are a LOTR fan or just watched one of the movies you will really enjoy this tour.

The half day Journey was excellent. We enjoyed every minute of it. The guide has well sense of humor, which made us laughed a lot during the 4-hour-trip.

It was an excellent tour that allowed us to see some hidden areas of New Zealand plus great for LOTR buffs
