Red carpet tours would have to be the best people to travel with. Ever. Nothing is too hard, communication before and after your journey is top notch and the fellowship of travellers ends up like family.

My wife and I booked this tour as part of our celebration of her retirement. We figured we could get a great experience of New Zealand's beauty along with visiting the filming sites of one of our favorite movies. I am so glad we did. The November 2016 tour happened to include art lessons with Daniel Reeve, so it wasn't... More

I had the privilege of traveling the length of New Zealand with Red Carpet tours and members in our 'fellowship' in November of 2016. While the tour was LOTR and Hobbit related, it was also a fantastic chance to explore New Zealand in a meaningful and most satisfying way. Our hosts, Vic and Julie(our guide), were most accommodating and friendly.... More

If you are a LOTR and/or Hobbit fan, this is the trip of a lifetime! You will travel to many of the movie locations with a group of like-minded adventurers. Your own Fellowship! The fourteen day tour takes you from Auckland, through various spots on the North Island, and then a ferry boat ride takes you to the South Island... More

A lot of people come home from a holiday and immediately want to go back. I've been there myself before and I've definitely been known to whine "take me back" for days afterwards. However, I've been home a week already and I have never felt a longing for a country as powerful as this. New Zealand, and especially my trip... More

I am unsure how to begin describing my favorite thing I've ever done.. I've wanted to visit Middle Earth since I saw Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring, so I decided to go by myself to celebrate turning 30. You begin your journey in Auckland and finish up two weeks later in Queenstown. This is one of those... More

If you loved the LOTR or hobbit series you need to do the 14 day tour that red carpet does. I have been back home less than 24hrs and already the shire is trying to call me back.
