Finding Red Carpet Tours was like finding the perfect recipe for our grand adventure. Before we began our trip, communication was excellent and helped us make sure we had everything in order....

It was an honor to tour this beautiful country with Julie and our group. Since the films' debut 15 years ago, I knew that I must visit New Zealand at some point in my lifetime. Choosing to do so with this tour as the centerpiece was absolutely the right decision. The tour is planned exceedingly well. We were able to... More

We have dreamt of doing this tour for 12 years, there are not enough words to describe our experiences on this trip. What can we say that has'nt already been said about julie & red carpet tours, all of which is absolutely true! For us this was not just a holiday but a very emotional & personal journey which exceeded... More

It is next to impossible to put into words how amazing our trip was. The tour itself is extremely well-organized and around every corner is breathtaking scenery. You will find that you cannot take enough pictures. It is a must-do on any Lord of the Rings / The Hobbit fan's bucket list or for anyone who loves travel and breathtaking... More

If you love LOTR or the Hobbit this is the tour for you. Every step of the way our tour was organized and we were treated like family. Lots of laughs, fun and excitement. Julie looked after each and everyone of us. No matter how small our need was she was there for us. The great relationship Red Carpet had... More

Red Carpet Tours offers an experience unlike most others, because the company is run by fans who are passionate about New Zealand and Middle Earth. We were fortunate to have people guiding us who knew all the secret, off the road, hard to find locations, and also had a wonderful knowledge of NZ and its people, culture and attractions. It...

My Mum and I had a lovely Lord of the Rings themed trip around the North and South Islands with Red Carpet Tours. Julie could not have been more helpful and accommodating. Everything was so well organised with so many cool locations to visit. The group had a real chance to get to know each other and a particular highlight... More

When the 1st Lord of the Rings movie came out, we were so impressed by the landscapes in the movie, we knew we had to go to NZ to see them for ourselves. That was only reinforced with the additional LoTR and The Hobbit movies. We were so pleased when we found the 14 day Red Carpet Tours online and... More
