Overview

Local guides will help you to explore the breath-taking landscapes of Middle Earth, Glenorchy and Paradise during this half day Lord of The Rings inspired tour. Visiting film locations from The Lord of the Rings trilogy, you’ll enjoy hearing behind the scenes stories, from decisions made by the director to amusing anecdotes about the actors. You’ll stand before such sites as Isengard, Ithilien, Amon Hen and Lothlorien forest; where you can play at being a star with our capes and swords, making for fun photos. As you travel along New Zealand’s most scenic highway from Queenstown to Glenorchy you will have the opportunity to stop and photograph incredible vistas as your guide shares insights with you. You will be as satisfied as a hungry Hobbit by the delicious picnic lunch we put on for in Mt Aspiring’s National Heritage Park. There will be fresh sandwiches and slices along with coffee/tea and some cold refreshments as well. Gluten-free and vegetarian options are available

Tour was great and Andrew had lots of good information and answered all of our questions. Spent a good amount of time on LOTR but also got to see some great sights. Tour is a good use of time.
