The activity is only recommended if you are huge LOTR fan. It is quite boring otherwise. The guide is very passionate and knowledgeable about the various LOTR scenes and where and how were they filmed. 2 hours is too long, I recommend you do the 1 hour tour if you are not a very big fan.

We arrived in Twizel in the middle of the afternoon. Although it was late, Dawn, our tour guide, kindly agreed to provide us with a private tour at dinnertime. She arrived promptly at 6:15 pm and took us on an almost 2 hour tour. She was very informative. The tour was a lot of fun for both fans and non-fans... More

Myself and my brother are LOTR fans and we had a tour by Dawn last week and we were really impressed with how much we learnt and how interesting all the information was. Dawn is very passionate about lord of the rings and it made it that much more amazing. It wasnt a standard tour by a robot, it was... More

We had the best time out on a stellar afternoon with Dawn from the Lord of the Rings Twizel Tour! She shared with us heaps of insights into the making of the trilogy being part of the extras herself. It was an amazing day out and the whole group had a blast dressing up and reenacting scenes at the end.... More

Dawn is awesome, she truly understands the passion people feel for the film and locations. We had her all to ourselves for our tour and we thoroughly enjoyed the sights with her. A must do if travelling in or near Twizel.

If you’re a LOTR fan (fan to hardcore to LOTR is life level), then this a must do. If you’re a casual LOTR fan, then this a must do. If you don’t know what is LOTR, then this is a must do. If you hate LOTR, then this is a must do too. Each tour session is filled with “you-never-know-behind-the-scenes”... More

The film has so much more to offer and with the opportunity of being able to visit the exact films sties and experience the beautiful nature, its... More

A must do for a LOTR fan. Great customer service and tour (forgot the name of the lady). So many interesting facts about the film, just wish i could remember them. Loved the chance to wear a Gondor helmet and dress up or use other items from the films.

Had a wonderful time at the tour. Our guide was so knowledgeable about the films and the shooting of scenes in Twizel. So interesting. She also did a great job of setting up photos of us wearing helmets and wielding swords.
