A day for all levels of Lord Of the Rings fanship.

A day of enlightenment that took us way beyond the bonus info discs of the LOR trilogy. Fabio's enthusiasim and knowledge of the films and NZ made for an entertaining day that wove expert commentary, music, visuals, props, limited edition artifacts, detailed production information and cast stories, actual site visits and information seamlessly together. A memorable day completed by highly recommended Queenstown dining options. Thanks for the photos, Fabio!

Lord of Rings. Middle Earth

Too much driving back and forth (collecting people half way through) the day. Needed to have lunch in a better place. Not in shopping centre. Food looked lovely but totally spoilt with a lot of blue cheese (most people do not like this) nobody ate it. Guide's name was Liliana and was knowledgeable and really lovely. More dressing up props would have made it better. Wouldn't say this was value for money but the company of others made it a lovely day, and our guide too
