Great group, knowledgeable guide, comfortable vehicle, perfect weather, unbelievable scenery! As an ardent fan of Lord of the Rings, it was a dream come true! It was certainly Lord of the Rings based, but there was a lady on the trip who didn't even watch the movies before and thoroughly enjoyed the landscape. Many people like to rent a car and drive around New Zealand themselves, but this particular location would be inaccessible. This trip is DEFINITELY worth the time and money!
Long trip but had some great scenery. This trip is more for the scenery and the lord of the rings is a little bonus.
This was a stunning trip and as our guide was a sound recorder who had worked on all 3 Lord of the Ring films, it was also very informative and interesting. I would highly recommend this trip!
Highly recommended....it was a brilliant day and my two teenage children thoroughly enjoyed it.......our guide was fantastic with a great sense of humour and lots of interesting facts .
Absolutely brilliant with an extremely knowledgeable guide. A fantastic experience and look forward to doing it again. We had 360 degree views of snowcapped mountains...gorgeous.
Wonderful - 4 wheel drive vehicle very comfortable, driver very intersting and scenery amazing.
This is a great trip for seeing the very scenic areas surrounding Mount Sunday. Our guide was very informative with local knowledge, but the main highlight was, climbing the Endoras sight. Our guide helped us relive many of the spectacular scenes from Lord of the Rings, feeling the majesty of the location in the film. He made it a personal, magical experience for each person. Its a must do!
We were picked up as scheduled and treated to a glorious day in the mountains, plus a fantastic guide who was able to verbally and visually recreate the movie scenes for us. A trip well worth the cost.
Great experience, made me watch all the movies again! Guides had vast array of knowledge and facts which enhanced our tour making it unforgettable! Thank you kindly.
This was a wonderful tour and our guide was amazing. He really enjoyed his work and new all about New Zealand to provide nice history on the way out and back. The trip did involve a hike up to the area where they filmed Lord of the Rings. You would need to be in moderate shape to make that hike. Would recommend it to anyone.
A really special experience! The tour guide spoilt us with his way of explaining and serving!
The trip was excellent well planned, well organised and the guide knew very valuable and entertaining information about the route, the location and the way the movie was made. A great vegetarian lunch, with chocolate cake, included. Thank you very much!
This was an excellent, fascinating experience, and the best of our four tours. The tour guide was a bit of an egotist, but was full of interesting information about Lord of the Rings. The champagne lunch at the sheep station was also memorable.
We thoroughly enjoyed the whole trip and were lucky enough to have amazing weather, warm even on the mountain top. The four wheel drive ride through the fields, along the river and up the mountainside was enormous fun and the view when we climbed to the top was just amazing. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and full of information about Lord of the Rings. Would recommend it to anybody and hope you get the wonderful sunshine that we did.
This was an excellent tour with knowledgeable and friendly guides.
It was a very nice daytrip, not only for LOTR fans. A lot of pictures shown and very good views.
We had a wonderful time on this tour. Brent was an excellent guide with lots of information about the moving filming that took place for the LOTR trilogy.
Although the weather is not good. I still have good time there. Different view of middle earth. :-)
The trip is good and worth going. But the coach journey is a bit long. The four wheel drive vehicle is cool and comfortable. The most important is the stunning view of Mount Sunday.
Thanks to big Steve for a great day exploring around Christchurch and mount Sunday. Beautiful scenery and great information as we drove along from our guide. The walk up edoras was brilliant - my son can't stop raving about how much he enjoyed the trip. Once again thanks for helping to make our trip to NZ memorable.
Had a brilliant day,even the weather stayed good. This was a holiday birthday present which will be hard to beat in the future!! Well done Hammond for giving us a fantastic informative day.
We had a great trip; Our tour guide was very informative and made the experience enjoyable even though we were with a group that didn't know the movie as well as we did. Thanks Terry!

It was a good tour. The guide was entertaining and the entire itinerary was well-planned. I loved the passion behind the guide's detailed explanation and description about 'Lord of the Rings'. The only pity was the weather. It was too foggy for us to have a good view of Edoras. But it's definitely worth the money for this trip.
