This tour was the highlight of my two week trip to New Zealand. The bus rides were never boring, as the guide was extremely knowledgeable about the area and kept up a running commentary on the way there, and showed videos on the way back. Mount Sunday and the surrounding area were absolutely stunning, by far the most beautiful place I've ever visited. It's well worth visiting even if you aren't a fan of Lord of the Rings.

Definitely worth the trip. The tour guide was fantastic and very knowledgeable. We ran into the guy who played the size-double for Gandalf in the LOTR movies, and took great pictures with actual props in the wonderful mountainous Edoras. Absolutely beautiful.

My daughter and I really enjoyed the tour. Though it was hard to walk up the mountain, it was worth it! The view was fantastic and it was great that they had some props that we could have our pictures taken with. The lunch they gave us was delicious. The tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly.

Other than the scenery and awesome views, the tour guide was definitely the other highlight of the trip. He was so knowledgeable and full of stories from all 3 movies. They even played music and docmentaries from the movie so that your car ride wasnt gonna be so boring! Definitely must do tour!

A great way to check out the sub-alpine countryside and wildlife. Out tour guide Steve was well-informed and helpful. From Mt Pott station, it would be nice if we went on foot or on horse-back instead of the 4WD-it would be more physical and fun.
