Where do I start? I guess I could start with saying this tour was the best experience of my entire life, undoubtedly. Being a huge fan of Lord of the Rings, I wanted to visit New Zealand just for the locations of the movies etc and I found the red carpet tours online, reading amazing reviews about it, so I... More

I did the two week tour in October of 2014 and it was one of the greatest experiences of my lifetime! You are in great hands with Red Carpet Tours as they take care of everything, from the wonderful transportation that lets you see the entire beautiful country of New Zealand as you drive from destination to destination, to the...

What more can be said except this has definitely been the most amazing Lord of the Rings experience I could have ever imagined. Whether you're a fan of the movies or epic scenery, this 14 day tour takes you on a journey you will never forget. Julie and Deanna are amazing guides looking after you every step of the way....

This was among the best trips my wife and I have ever taken. We were part of the October 2014 Fellowship that went from Auckland to Queenstown. We took a bus tour to filming sites in 'Middle Earth' that were totally immersive. We visited sites like the Trollshaws from the Hobbit, Gollum's Fishing spot, and Hobbiton - and this was... More

This past September, my sister and I took a pilgrimage to Middle Earth (aka New Zealand), and let us start by saying anything we say can't fully express our amazement at the trip. We got everything we expected from the journey times a thousand - plus so much more we didn’t expect including life-long friendships, tears (when we had to... More

As with many LoTR fans, I have wanted to do a New Zealand LoTR tour since I found out that it was filmed in New Zealand and that such tours existed. Doing a LoTR tour through NZ was my dream. I've expected to hop onto a bus with a group of people and experience a week-long scenic ride through NZ... More

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
