I have recently returned from the July 2016 Red Carpet Tour. It was amazing. I am sorting through over 4000 images (and 200 videos) trying to find the best pictures for an album, my only problem is that they are all great. From the picturesque Hobbiton, and the cosmopolitan Auckland and Wellington (including Weta Workshops), to the grand vistas around... More

Went to New Zealand for our honeymoon and had a blast thanks to Red Carpet Tours! Everyone should do this LOTR tour! It covers all the main LOTR points on both islands as well as the popular NZ locations.

My husband and I traveled to New Zealand in June 2016 for the 14 day Middle Earth tour. We are fans of the Lord of the Rings movies, but not scholars of Tolkien. We had dreamed of taking this trip since we saw the movies and were not disappointed! Red Carpet Tours took excellent care of us and we did... More

From Auckland to Queenstown we didn't just see the Lord of the Rings locations, we were immersed in the whole story. As well as the sights there was attention to film-making, production, props, as well as the wider experience of New Zealand. I went as a solo traveller but quickly found like minds in our fellowship. Our tour was guided... More

I can't find enough superlatives to describe how wonderful my experience was on the 14-day Middle-earth tour. I did the tour with my husband and our just-graduated-from-university daughter. We all loved the tour, start to finish! This was our first visit to New Zealand, and I definitely hope it won't be the last! The RCT staff are all fabulous, and... More

My (now) fiance and I took the 14 day tour In February of 2016 and we still haven't stopped talking about it. We had such a wonderful time and met so many wonderful people in what must be the most beautiful country in the world.

My husband and I took the 14 day tour offered by Red Carpet Tours as our honeymoon, and our expectations were surpassed by many fold. Leading up to the tour, Julie was very responsive to our questions. She was our guide for the whole time we were there, and her enthusiasm for both her country and the LOTR movies were... More

To summarise this review, the 15 day tour is amazing, breathtakingly amazing and if you've made it this far on tripadviser then you don't need to look anywhere else just get on and book this tour. As there's so much to say about this trip this review is likely to be a bit all over the place but basically: You... More
