Huge thanks to Nomad Safaris who hosted us on this tour - Our guide was exceptional as well as exceptionally well informed (as well as exceptionally pregnant :-) though that didn't slow her down from our 4WD ride out to Paradise! Best of luck o her and hers!) with inside factoids and stories about the filming of LOTR as well as X-Men, Prince Caspian and others. Thank you Viator for arranging to make my much too short visit to NZ so memorable!
This trip was great fun and our guide Soap didn't hold back showing us his backyard. He didn't just show us Lord of the Ring scenes but all kinds of other movie sets and it was really cool to have afternoon tea in the middle of the Wolverine set! We took great images and had a fantastic afternoon. Thanks!
Love this tour so much as I'm a photographer! This is a relax tour, was on a Safari, taking you the Glenorchy town which is nobody there only a possum fur shop which is perfect for me to taken photos! but not the photo with all tourist! Our route is so great, everywhere scenery was magnificent view!!! he drive us from the land to the forest, then a bit to the sea then i can take photos! and only 5 people for the whole tour! That means i can take my time to take as much photos as i can and also we don't have a big gap to wait for everybody for the next spot! Really really beautiful scenery!!!
The area we visited was absolutely gorgeous.
The Guide, a young woman (forgot her name),
was just the best we could hope for. Very pleasant time.
A marvellous way to see the area with a LOTR movie twist. Punctual pickup. Great scenery.
Very average tour. We could have seen these sights without going on the tour. Our driver was new and young. He took those curves in the road way too fast! The tea time snack was only very ordinary... simple biscuits.
