Our guide was Chris. I love his sense of humour to bits!! The trip was organised well and full of beautiful scenery. Would recommend this to anyone even non-LOTR fans. Please give Chris a better bottle of wine!!

If you are a Lord of the Rings fan this tour is your way to see the locations for some of the film. Our guide was very knowledgeable and had pictures of what the scene looks like in the film. Our group did scene reenactments with capes and swords provided. Great fun and worth the money.
Mathew was very knowledgeable of the area and shared many entertaining stories. We enjoyed the tea and sword fights.
We loved every minute even though the weather was rainy most of the day we saw super sites and location. Hannah and Badger were super with lots of information and made it interesting and fun. Well worth the money and had tea in the elf woods. Great afternoon out thank you.
We enjoyed this tour very much, especially the scenery which was absolutely fabulous! Our tour guides Martin and Sally made the tour fun and interesting. Great for any Hobbit!
Excellent, very knowledgable guide. Weather wasn't the best but even then the locations are still stunning.
Our tour guide Badger was fabulous. His knowledge of Middle Earth is amazing.
The tour was fantastic! Our guide was very knowledgable and enthusiastic about showing us the most beautiful locations were the movies ' hobbit' and the LOTR was shot. Queenstown and its surrounding areas. Including Glenorchy is one of the most beautiful place we have ever been to. Definitely recommended.
the staff were very organized and even though each traveler had a different itinerary they were able to keep all the moving parts organized and accommodate everyone.
Our tour guide was great! Scenery is breathtaking. I would recommend this tour.
Tim was our guide and he was exceptionally good at what he does. His knowledge of the tour and NZ in general was appreciated. The tour itself was a lot of driving, but we did not have a lot of time, so it was perfect for us. We stopped along the way and took photos. Tim even had tea and cookies for us in a heavily wooded area -- we felt like we were in the movie! He also had costumes and props for us to try on...that was probably my daughter's favorite part!
Wonderful tour and knowledgeable tour guide. Beautiful scenery and interesting locations. Would recommend to anyone looking for a fun afternoon.
Fantastic. Our guide, Paul, was very knowledgable and accommodating. Happy to stop at particular points for us to take photos, providing lots of information about the filming of the movie, matching the sites we were seeing with film locations and showing us pictures in his well thumbed book so we could visualise exactly where the action was filmed from where we were standing. Two teenage Lord of the Ring fans were thoroughly impressed, as were two mums who enjoyed the scenery and other tidbits of information offered about the history of the local area. Thanks Paul!
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.
Really nice tour. Glenorchy is definitely worth going to. Sad though it was foggy so we couldnt see some of the lord of the rings scenery. Lee was our guide and she was good and nice and knowledgeable. Nice that she had pictures to compare what we were actually looking at and the pics in the films. One of the best tours of our trip. My family particularly enjoyed the coffee and biscuits by the river - our patch of paradise.

For the LOTR fans this tour is a must. Our guide Jean was very knowledgeable and and we were taken to most of the film locations of the movies. it was an enjoyable tour covering up to fifty kilometers of country road. We even had the costumes and swords for our photo sessions.Highly recommended.
A very enjoyable afternoon with our Lord of the Rings guide during our first full day in New Zealand. A lot of fun reviewing the scenes of the movie then looking at the real spots where they were filmed. Guide was excellent.
