We had an amazing day with Barry in the tour. We were the only two pick ups so we had our own wee private excursion in the land rover.

The day went with clockwork and there was a contingency plan if the boat for whale watching wasn't going.

We loved spending time with Barry listening to his stories. His knowledge of the area is immense and it was so interesting to hear the history as we travelled through the stunning countryside.

The whale watching was something else.

It is clear Barry is well thought of in the community. He seemed to know everyone and received a warm welcome at the stop offs and the other tour operators. He took us to the best local place for lunch and knew the best places for good photos.

I was sorry it was Barry's last day but I hope he enjoyed our company as much as we enjoyed his. Best of luck for the future.

This was one of our favourite tours on our trip in New Zealand. Maria was our fantastic tour guide, full of interesting knowledge and kept the small group of us entertained throughout, especially during our long drive from Christchurch. She looked after us well and the lunch was tasty! The tour itself was well organised and spots we were taken to were beautiful. I definitely recommend hassle back tours.

This was a great day out: a small group trip out with an informed, entertaining guide. The scenery was so spectacular that it’s a terrific experience even for those who aren’t Lord of the Rings fans! Not physically difficult, and a delicious lunch. Highly recommended!!

THe destination of this trip was epic. A must do for any Lord of the Rings fan!
The trip from Chrsitchurch was a long one, keep in mind it takes the hole day, being on location is app. one and an half hour.
Still the journey was never dull with our driver and guide Maria, who told interesting stories on the way. For a well informed LotR fan it was not the LotR stories that were the most interesting, but her stories of the villages and nature.
I took her advice and went to the Red Zone on my last day in Chrchr.

Edoras is one of the magnificient locations, so go there if you can!

This trip was absolutely fantastic! I would highly recommend this for any Lord of the Rings fan! Hassle Free Tours picked us up and dropped us off directly from our hotel, so we did not have to worry about transportation. We were on a 4WD bus with two tour guides full of knowledge about the surrounding area and LOTR. Once on our way, we stopped at a beautiful lake and then continued on the way to Edoras. Edoras itself was beautiful and is a must-see. If you so choose, you can even take up a sword or two and the Rohan flag!
