I booked the Full Day Lord of the Rings tour for my mother and I, being sure to note in the comments that she's not super mobile. She can walk, but she's slow, and she has problems standing for long periods of time. Through the luck of the draw, we got Jack for our guide and he was sensational. Engaging,... More

Awesome visit and great highlight tour of Wellington, got to see a lot of small back streets and things we wouldn't have made time for or found and got a really good lay of the land and ideas for other things to do in town and places to eat. Great guide- BJ- he was incredible and knew so much detailed... More

We took the full day wine tour on our last day in New Zealand. A big thank you to our guide Laura, who took my wife and I on a great trip to some great wineries in the Martinborough area. Her choice of stops for morning tea and lunch were outstanding, places we would never found on our own. I... More

Having checked out what would interest a family of 50 somethings travelling with a limited mobility 80 something I thought this trip looked good and it paid off big time. I had called ahead to check if the Lord of the Rings tour would be OK for limited mobility and being told not so good for wheel chairs we went... More

My wife and I had a lovely day visiting some of the filming sites for lord of the rings. Our guide (a woman whose name I'm ashamed I can't remember) was extremely knowledgeable and offered previously unknown insights into the entire process of making the films.

We did the whole day Extended edition Middle Earth and had a fantastic time. We were picked up from the city at 9 and dropped back at 5. Went to several filming locations in and around Wellington driven by our well informed tour guide, Laura. She answered all of our questions very well, including a lot of New Zealand oriented...

Went on this tour with my wife and Mike as our guide. I was pleased from the beginning by the fact that Mike was just as passionate about the LOTR films as I was (something you may not find on other tours in NZ.) I learned lots of additional facts about the filming of the movies and their effects on... More

Our tour guide, Jack was clearly passionate about LOTR, which made the tour even more special. He took excellent care of us every step of the way - even when we visited Weta, making sure we were well aware of what was happening when. Really enjoyed the tour and visiting the various filming locations. Also, loved all the props Jack... More

The full day tour was an excellent tour for LOTR fans - it covered a large amount of territory (and it was great not to have to drive to some of the remote locations) and our guide was truly knowledgeable. The lunch was good and we made it back in time for our 4:00 WETA tour without feeling rushed and... More
