Driver Craig was awesome, and Julie was simply great. We had an unusual experience of only a one day tour rather than the multi day tour, as a result of winning the #gigatown competition (thanks #gigatownnsn!) But I could tell the immense amount of knowledge that they held between them. Julie offered a family friendly and interesting history of LotR... More

This trip was the best I have ever been on as of yet. (And I have done quite a bit of traveling all over the world) If you are a Lord of the Rings or Hobbit fan this tour is a must. My tour was led by the incredible and wonderful Julie and Deanna. They were always well organized, willing... More

For Lord of the Rings fans, this IS the way to visit Middle-Earth. For even casual/non-fans, it's still a chance to see the incredible beauty of New Zealand with the best people! Led by wonderfully well-organized, patient, friendly, and helpful Julie and Deanna, the trip was a magical two weeks full of new experiences, fun activities, and great times. From... More

This trip was the most wonderful adventure I have ever gone on. From the time you put your deposit down, until you leave at the end of the tour Julie is there to help with planning and recommendations. I knew this would be an awesome trip but it blew my expectations away. Red Carpet Tours has years of experience and... More

Our Lord of the Rings tour in February was simply amazing - as noted in other reviews, the tour guides (who become your friends) take care of all the details to ensure your trip goes well. The owners have carefully prepared an excellent itinerary that takes you to some very scenic places in both islands. And there's a great mix... More

There are so many parts of this trip that were incredible that it is difficult to pick out just a few...each day Julie and Deeanna planned our adventure in such a way that we not only were able to immerse ourselves in the beauty of New Zealand, but develop a fellowship that will endure. From the first day in Hobbiton... More

To sit down and plan any holiday is alot of work. Thinking about where to go and what you want to do takes effort, budget and a straight forward mindset. Red carpet tours take all the stress away and look after you ao you can sit back and relax. Going in a tour group seems like you put yourself out... More

January tour: This tour is nothing short of amazing. I've been to other countries before but NZ definitely tops it because of the Red Carpet Tours. Julie and Deanna were fantastic tour guides and take care of you from the first day you book to the last day of the tour. They are so well organized and we had a... More

Words can't describe how wonderful this 14 day tour was from start to finish and ever on... The Red Carpet team, headed by Julie James were super professional, incredibly talented, welcoming & went above and beyond in all areas to care for every single member of our Fellowship! We went to spectacular locations, some completely out of the way; we... More
