Great trip in Toyota Landcruiser to filming scenes

Our tour guide was a great driver and very friendly. He had all the information on the filming scenes we visited. The Toyota Landcruisers ensured a small group. It was fun and informative.

Great tour with heaps of LOTR info and stops!

Loved going on this tour with Jenny, she had a wealth of knowledge on the Lord of the Rings, and all the locations that we visited had a great explanation plus a reference book to show screenshots of the scenes for each location. Well worth taking the trip to see some beautiful scenery, even if you aren't a fan of the movies!

Hi Ian Thanks so much for the great feedback! We don't normally offer gold panning on our Glenorchy tour- it wasn't a really big miners area. Next tome come check out Skippers Canyon, Wakatipu Basin or Macetown and you can give it a go!

Intimate tour of Glenorchy

I am not a LOTR fanatic but this trip was an interesting intimate exploration of Glenorchy nonetheless. I didnt have a car in the area, so this was a good way to see more outside of Qtown. Driver is the guide. He has a binder of scenes from the movies and shares details about the sites where they were filmed.
