The Fellowship was fabulous. Not a bad egg in the bunch. Everybody both on the tour and running the tour were great! Julie is incredibly well organized. The question to ask yourself is would you do it again? In a heartbeat!

During December I was fortunate enough to journey with Red Carpet Tours on their two day South Island Tour. The trip was fantastic visiting locations we would never have seen on our own. The trip was well organized and the tour guides were absolutely amazing, they brought Middle Earth to life over the two days. I would recommend this trip... More

Vic drove my family and I to Hobbiton in a small van with a total of six guests. It was a fairly long drive, about two and a half hours, so I was very glad to have someone else do the driving, especially since Vic had a wealth of stories to share along the way. Hobbiton requires visitors to go... More

Ever since watching the Lord of the Rings trilogy, I have always wanted to go to New Zealand and see the magnificent landscape I had come to love as Middle Earth for myself. After years of waiting, me and a friend finally got around to it and booked a 2 week Lord of the Rings location tour with Red Carpet... More

Win, Win, Win for us! For years I had heard of the fabulous beauty of New Zealand and my husband and I wanted to go since our marriage in 1990. We planned to do a self-drive/B&B trip as we have always done but, we found that we were tired of me navigating from the opposite of the car on the... More

When planning my holiday to New Zealand, I spent a lot of time researching options, looking for that "perfect" Lord of the Rings/Hobbit experience. To simply say Red Carpet Tours exceeded my expectations would not do them justice. The 14 days my wife and I spent touring was amazing. Julie and the team go out of their way to provide... More

Red Carpet Tours makes fantasy-dreams come true. This 14 day tour takes you to many of the most prominent Lord of the Rings locations, such as Hobbiton, Mordor and Edoras with many options to reenact your favorite scenes (YAAY!). Some of the places are on private property, so you wouldn't be able to reach them. Red Carpet makes it possible.... More

Goodness, where do I start. New Zealand has been at the very top of my bucket list since I was 9 years old. I had just seen the Lord of the Rings, The Fellowship of the Ring and I promised myself that one day I'd go there and see it in person. Now with the help of Red Carpet Tours... More
