January tour: This tour is nothing short of amazing. I've been to other countries before but NZ definitely tops it because of the Red Carpet Tours. Julie and Deanna were fantastic tour guides and take care of you from the first day you book to the last day of the tour. They are so well organized and we had a... More

Words can't describe how wonderful this 14 day tour was from start to finish and ever on... The Red Carpet team, headed by Julie James were super professional, incredibly talented, welcoming & went above and beyond in all areas to care for every single member of our Fellowship! We went to spectacular locations, some completely out of the way; we... More

I know I am going to have a hard time putting into words how wonderful my journey with Red Carpet Tours was. I will do my best. From the initial booking, the Red Carpet Team is there for you. They will answer all of your questions. And trust me, I had a ton over the 10 months between booking and... More

Disappointed I couldn't do full 14 day tour, but Wellington Week was the most fun I've had in ages. Julie, Vic and Raewyn did as proud as usual, the nicest friendliest people I know. Nothing was too much trouble, and the tour was the best. Will definitely go on a Red Carpet Tour again.

This was my first full-service tour of any type or duration, and I really enjoyed having all the arrangements taken care of, from arrival at the airport to ferry tickets to hotels to the opportunity to stop and view a sea lion colony on our way to another night's stop. There is a high level of attention to detail and... More

I have travelled three times with this wonderful Fellowship and have loved EVERY Journey and EVERY Oppurtunity they have given me. Memories for life and well worth the price.

This is my third time with Red Carpet Tours (1st-the 14-day tour in July 2007, 2nd-14-day Hobbit Premiere Tour in Dec. 2012, & 3rd-Welly Week in Dec. 2014). I love Vic, Raewyn & Julie James and can't say enough good things about them. They are my New Zealand 'ohana! The tours are always very well-organized, accommodations are very comfortable, and...

Imagine two weeks with 140+ Hobbit fans on four buses traveling up and down the north and south island, visiting film locations throughout New Zealand where Peter Jackson filmed not one but two trilogies of movies. Vic and Raewyn, Julie, and the rest of the tour guides somehow managed all of us and our luggage and costume cases with humor,... More
