Having made the decision to visit New Zealand, spurred by our love of Tolkien's work and our wish to see Middle Earth, research told up that Red Carpet Tours was the obvious organization with which to travel. And we were right. From the booking stage on, the attention to detail and personal contact and advice the Company was superb. The... More

When I first join the tour, I'm not too sure what to expect from a LOTR tour. I enjoy the movies every much but I'm not familiar with the books, so I can't say I'm an official LOTR fan. But all my doubt start to disappeared on the first day, and by the second day, I know Mum and I... More

"What's the best way to see New Zealand?” I asked myself. After some research I found Red Carpet Tours. The decision to go on the 14 Day Lord of the Rings Tour was easy. Covering both North and South Islands; Hobbiton, Trollshaw Forest, WETA, Wellington, Meniscus, Edoras and many more locations, as well as meet and greets with artists and... More

We were hoping the LotR tour would be wonderful - in fact it surpassed every hope and expectation that we had. Julie, Ben an Sue looked after us as if they had known us for ever, and seemed to understand what it meant to us to visit Middle Earth. We quickly go to know everyone on the tour and soon... More

I have been wanting to go to New Zealand for a long time, and when I began researching travel and tours, and am SO GLAD that I decided to book through Red Carpet Tours! Julie and Vic, our tour guides, were first class! We were pampered all the way! We visited several LOTR and Hobbit filming locations and were able... More

I read the raving reviews before we left and was still a little sceptical...but here we are planning another trip as soon as possible. The whole trip was amazing and that is still an mammoth understatement. The hotels were lovely, the food was beautiful and in abundance, the tour went on without a hitch and every part of the way...

My mom and I went on the 14-Day Lord of the Rings tour and there is only one way to describe the experience: Unbelievable. Not only was the trip perfect for giving Tolkien fans the sense that we really were in Middle Earth, the exploration of both the north and south island included scenery that even a city girl like...

This is my second 14-day tour with Red Carpet Tours and I can't say enough about how great these folks are! You will become part of the family and you'll enjoy every mile you travel with your fellow fans. You'll meet people who were involved in making the films (actors, stunties, artists, craftspeople, extras) and you'll stand on the very... More

My review is about the 14-day tours. This was a tour that was totally worth both the time & money I gave it. It took us all around New Zealand, to countless LotR/Hobbit filming locations. Hobbiton with its lovely set was certainly one of the highlights, as was Edoras with its lovely view and our guide Derek, who was an... More
