Unbelievable adventure with April 2017 LOTR 14 day tour

I can't imagine seeing New Zealand and having such a wonderfully magical experience any other way. The tour was so well organized. Our tour guide, Julie, was so well prepared that the experience was heightened by her professionalism and yet personal approach. I would do this tour again. I loved it!

Red Carpet Tours is a family owned business, started by Vic James 16 years ago. They are advertised as leaders in Lord of the Rings movie tours, and having just completed the 14 day tour this April, I would definitely say the title is well deserved. RCT runs monthly tours, spanning the release of all 6 movies and premieres (Lord... More

My husband and I were part of the March 2017 Fellowship LOTR Red Carpet tour. I am a casual fan of the Hobbit and LOTR, however, my husband is a mega fan. This turned out to be the best trip either of us has ever taken. What an incredible way to experience the beauty of New Zealand and enjoy the... More

As everyone has said, this tour is the best. My wife and I did the 14-day fellowship for our honeymoon, and it was a dream come true. We'd been planning on doing this since 2011 and it still surpassed our insanely high expectations. Julie, our guide, had the leadership qualities of Aragorn, the foresight of Gandalf, and the food/drink knowledge... More

It's impossible to adequetly put into words how unbelievable this tour was. If you're looking at going to NZ, a fan of LoTR and the Hobbit then this tour is an absolute no brainer. If you're not a massive Tolkien fan, you're still going to have a pretty great time. If you're expecting to laze about and catch some Z's,... More

I went on the March 2017 tour. This was the best tour I have ever done, hairy feet down! Not only do you get to see the many locations where The Lord of the Rings and Hobbit films were filmed but you get to see the beauty that is New Zealand. Most sites we visited it was just our tour... More

We went on the three day LOTR tour from Auckland to Hobbiton (and other places) and it was fantastic. It was just me, my partner, and the tour guide, which was a little bit awkward sometimes (my partner and I are not morning people, and not always the best at small talk) but the tour guide was so knowledgeable and...

After talking about it for years, my sister and I went on the February, 2017 tour with Red Carpet. What an amazing trip! It’s a must-do if you’re a Lord of the Rings Fan, and are planning to visit New Zealand. What could be better than travelling around this stunning country with a group of like-minded people? Red Carpet is... More

On a whim, I decided to book myself a trip to New Zealand. After looking through a few guided tour options I came upon Red Carpet tours and despite considering myself a mere casual fan of LOTR, it looked like the best, including so many parts of beautiful New Zealand, and now I know I couldn't have chosen better.
