Being a lord of the rings fan for a long time I decided to go on a tour of New Zealand with a friend and thus we found Red Carpet Tours. This is where the story begins but I can assure you this is not where it ended. Over the course of 14 days we not only visited numerous LOTR/... More

After thinking about it for ten years, I finally went on a Red Carpet tour’s lotr-tour this July. I had very high expectations, and expected a great trip. However, everything was far beyond my wildest dreams. The locations (most of which were immediately recognizable) were outstanding, with Edoras as the absolute highlight. Our guide, Julie, did whatever she could to... More

This was the first time I'd been travelling by myself for any real length of time and, as such, I was initially somewhat trepidatious. However, from the very first moment I met Julie, the Fellowship's most excellent tour guide and our very own Gandalf/Galadriel hybrid (Lady Galadralf?), I was immediately put at ease. She made sure everyone was having a... More

The two week LOTR/Hobbit tour was the most amazing holiday, or rather adventure, ever. New Zealand is the most beautiful country I've been to so far and seeing the exact locations of the films was a dream come true (my favourites were Hobbiton and Edoras). The weather wasn't always in our favour but nobody can control that and even when... More

What can I say....... This was the most amazing holiday ever! From the awesome locations visited and the stunning scenery, to the fabulousness that is Julie, and the best bunch of travelling companions that we toured with. This was a brilliantly organised tour. I can't speak highly enough of Julie, who is a very knowledgable, enthusiastic, helpful and very fun... More

Myself and my fiance went for the full 2 week tour starting in Aukland and ending in queens town. It was absolutely amazing, getting to experience the beauty of new zealand through the eyes of an avid lord of the rings fan. We participated in the recommended extras such as helicopter rides and boat rides. We also ate like hobbits... More

These past 2 weeks have been absolutely amazing! Eventhough the weather wasn't always helping us, I did have an absolutely wonderful time and new friends that I am super grateful for!

Friendly, informative, efficient, and one of the best day trips we've ever taken. I would go with Red Carpet again anytime.

The best LOTR Experience you will ever have. So many locations, and great, knowledgeable, HELPFUL guides who have been doing this for close to a decade now, and really know their stuff. Go with friends or family, doesn't matter. You will come away with new ones. I'm already planning a return trip with Red Carpet for 2018.
