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

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
