10 out of 10, wish we did it sooner

This tour was definitely 1 to remember, we went into it with excitement and walked away blown away at how good it was. Joel has a huge amount of local knowledge and enthusiasm for not only the film side of things but the history and wildlife in the area. 5 minutes into the trip it felt like taking a ride with a good mate. Top guy and am stoked we did it. Joel and kate deserve more than 5 stars. Would do any of their tours in a heartbeat

Recommend this trip! Amazing views

This tour was definitely one to go on if you have half a day free in your trip to Queenstown. Our tour guide, Joel, was really knowledgeable on the tourism history of Queenstown as well as his knowledge of the LOTR locations and what was going on behind the scenes when they were filmed many years ago. The fact that Joel took us to filming locations where they shot the films was a complete bonus and gave it that much more of an exclusive feel. Definitely recommend going on this tour!
