We just returned from the May tour. It had been a dream of our family for many years to visit New Zealand & Red Carpet Tours helped make this dream come true. We had an AMAZING time, a wonderful way to celebrate our 25th anniversary!

I had the privilege to be part of the 14 day April 2015 tour and I can’t describe in enough detail how amazing the experience has been! I’ve wanted to visit New Zealand for about 15 years now, but it was always a dream and never a possibility. It’s taken a long time to pluck up the courage to travel... More

I did the 14-day tour of North and South Islands with Red Carpet Tours in April 2015. I had dreamed of visiting New Zealand for years, ever since finding out that the gorgeous locations in Lord of the Rings were actual places, not CGI. Julie, Vic, and Raewyn made my dream come true, despite the fact that I had not... More

Excellent Tour of the North Island. We went to many places and not just places for the movie nerds. We were treated to several surprises. Being able to go to Weta and experience how they put on ears and scars, and see many props from different movies was just one such surprise. The mountains, waterfalls, volcanoes, the sea and ocean,... More

Reading reviews of Red Carpet Tours on TripAdvisor, it seemed almost too good to be true; but it really does live up to the hype! Travelling as part of the March 2015 Fellowship was one of the best experiences of my life, and one I look forward to repeating in the future. I found it slightly daunting to travel across... More

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
