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

The two vehicles collected us from his home , eleven of us in total . Beer was allowed provided it was in tins !!! Obviously not for the drivers but... More

What can I say bad about Off-Road?!! Amazingly beautiful and charming staff who clearly have a wild passion for their country and their fantastic jobs. The off roading tour was exciting, fun and informational. Loaded up with iPads full of LOTR location footage & overflowing with geological, geographical and historical knowledge the trip was accurately suited to the group on... More

We booked this tour upon recommendation from the hotel we stayed in on our last day in Queenstown. My wife and i are not the most avid LOTR fans but we thought that the beautiful scenery is something we cannot miss. I was proven right, the ride to Glenorchy is a very scenic and beatiful ride. I couldn't stop snapping... More

We arrived in early July to snow on the mountains. The tour to Skippers Canyon was just that, a drive along snow covered roads on the mountain high above the canyon. We travelled along the Shotover river past old gold mining huts, stopping for photos of picturesque scenery along the way. After about an hour we arrived to a magical... More

I booked the Discover the Rings 4x4 tour and couldn't help but feeling pretty disappointed afterwards. The seemed to be very little content that was geared towards Lord of the Rings which was the main reason I booked the tour apart from maybe two stops. At every stop I asked if any scenes had been filmed here but the guide... More

Did the Skippers Canyon 4 x 4 tour Really interesting learning how much of the early development of Queenstown and the surrounding area was driven by gold mining Tour lasted about 5 hours. We were picked up from our hotel and driven along a (what seemed to us) precarious track with our excellent guide (Simon) relating all sorts of stories... More
