My husband and I were looking at LOTR tours for almost 15 years with a goal of going for our 25th anniversary. We had our anniversary in December of 2014 and we had begun planning our trip in January of 2014. Julie was always quick to answer questions, even when she was on the road with a fellowship!

I recommend this tour to everyone ,even people that are not LotR fans. Julie James was our guide and she knows so much about LotR and New Zealand, she... More

As we wrapped up our wonderful 3 week tour of New Zealand, in spite of specifically trying to not get obsessed with Lord of the Rings and Hobbit film locations, we decided that instead of spending our last day before flying home in Auckland, we'd take a tour to Hobbiton in Matamata. Although we had booked our excursion only at... More

Took the whole family on this 2 week LOTR adventure. I have been on many tours, but this was hands down the best. We started in Auckland and ended in Queenstown and in between we saw some of the most beautiful places you could imagine. It was a dream come true to experience the places where my favorite movies were... More

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
