A bit average tour. Be sure to sit up front otherwise you get sick in the back. Lunch options are home made sandwiches which are OK but I recommend you pack your own. Nice but a bit average. Don't be shy to ask questions.

We went on a lord of the rings Glenorchy tour with our awesome guide TONYTMAN who was very good and knew a lot about Queenstown and also the filming of LOTR. I think the part that made the tour was his inside knowledge of him working on set. We were even the first customers in the new 4x4!

Went out with Lachie in the snow today and it was awesome. Went all over the place, saw some excellent tracks and had a great time. Would highly recommend to anyone. We are a family of 5 including a 10 year old who sat between Mum & Dad and screamed for more!

Great views, off-roading on dirt roads and a river bed, gold panning and two wineries.... A simple way to sample Otago! Our driver and guide offered insights in to the area and adjusted the trip to our areas of interest. It seems this is one of their less popular tours but we struggle to understand why....we came back with loads... More

Go for the amazing scenery and completely different day out, even if you are not a LOTR fan. There are so many different locations all over NZ that obviously you cannot do them all! As a couple over 70 we had a great day out with guide and driver Pete who was very knowledgeable. The 4 x 4 driving of... More

For a half day trip we went with our guide Tony for a ride along Lake Wakatipu in a Land Rover truck. He was a very knowledgeable Lord of the Rings guide, as well as a botanist and nature guide. The sights were incredible, from the snow covered mountains in the distance, to the beautiful greenery around us and the... More

Had decent fun and saw beautiful scenery used for shots in the movies around Queenstown. Guide was an old film worker and knew a lot of trivia and interesting facts. The 4x4 part through the river was a bit extraneous, but relevant for one of the scenes. Go for the tour, not the excitement. Included a snack and plenty of... More

Very little actual lord of the rings information. If you want a general tour of the area, this is fine but still overpriced. The "off roading" is also not accurate.
