This tour was very good even though today it took a lot longer than anticipated. Lunch was served at 3pm which was really a bit late. Most of the group got on very well together but there was a family that didn't want to know anybody else and were getting alot of favoritism from the driver. The driver/tour guide was very good but some people missed out on photos due to the family that obviously thought they should have had a personal trip.
Apart from that the tour was good and we got to see everything we wanted to.
Generally speaking I would recommend this tour to others.

I wish I had known a little more about what was going to happen on the excursion. I did not know that there would be a hike involved so wore the wrong clothes. Some more information explaining what to expect on the whole trip would have been good.

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.

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.

It's a good hike to the top, but the views are worth the hike!

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.

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.

When you have a spare day in Christchurch, I would highly suggest this trip. The staff knows everything about the place and the movies all three of them. The view were magnificent, even if you have not seen the movies before I can guarantee that you will be amazed.

Although not a huge fan of LOTR I really enjoyed this trip. The scenery was outstanding and the guides commentary entertaining. A good day out, very well organised.

I have never seen any of the Lord of the Rings movies, but this tour is worth taking. The scenery alone was worth the bus drive!

Weather wasn't too good, and we only managed 15 minutes on the mountain. You would need to be a die-hard fan to take this tour.

This was a waste of time and money. The tour guide was fantastic though.
