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.

Trip started bad coz my Mrs was late and the driver had to wait 5 minutes for her which upset a yankie dude in the truck but our guide Shael was cool and the yank calmed down (eventually). I'm a kiwi and a big LOTR fan (well 1&2@least!) Shael took us to Glenorchy and it was awesome. He said he's... More

Thoroughly enjoyable experience, Shayle was informative and friendly. It was great to see the filming locations whilst having a wonderful scenic tour as well. I would recommend this to anyone.

Went with a couple of mates on a off day from snowboarding Great easy going instructor and learning curves. Seemed to tailor to various levels of experiences. Mostly dirt tracks which were great fun. Would had liked to been more "off road" for the quad biking. Thanks for the fun time!

We went on a 4 hour Discovery of the Rings Tour outside of Queenstown. Our tour guide Sophie was fantastic. There were only the 2 of us, so we had our own personal tour. Sophie took us to some great photo spots. Showed us film locations for "Lord of the Rings", "Wolverine", & "The Hobbit". After pointing out the film... More

We had Pete on our Off Road 4x4 Glenorchy tour and were a small group of 7. It was very informative with parts of the film shown on his iPad and then you see the actual scenery, so great. We were taken in a 4x4 through streams and bumpy roads and it was unforgettable. The day started dull and there... More

My own fault but....I thought that we were buying a tour of genuinely off-road sightseeing--just not the wild river crossing one (Macetown), that would start in Glenorchy and head off up into the hills. Instead we crammed into a not very comfortable land-cruiser in Queenstown, and then drove up the main road to Gelnorchy, and stopped off at a bunch... More

As most on the trip were there for the scenery, I think our guide decided to do a general talk of the area with odd LOR snippets thrown in. For us this made it an expensive sight seeing tour. I expected much more Rings content & not a local scenic tour. very disappointed as we had driven the area in... More

A great afternoon touring the LOTR sites with a very engaging and knowledgable tour guide, Tony, who could answer all our questions and took us to some amazing locations. Lots of stirring and great local knowledge stories! Well done!

Wow what an awesome way to spend an arvo. These buggies are amazing, they just want to eat dirt and climb. Nothing's too hard for these bugs. The views and photo opportunities would have to be the best in Queenstown, and as for "Lucky" our local motocross legion well he is magic and knows all the local history on the... More
