Middle Earth Experience Fantastic journey from beginning to end. Joel is an amazing guide with lots of in-depth knowledge and full of fun facts. We enjoyed a hot cuppa tea and slice nestled in amongst the stunning mountains and lake surroundings of Glenorchy. You can see why Paradise was used in soo many movies just for the sheer beauty there. Highly recommend this tour to anyone who is a fan of LOTR or not. The Scenery is magical and my hubby enjoyed riding shotgun opening and closing the gates. 👍🏾

The most incredibly scenic tour you could have of Queenstown and Glenorchy! Joel was super informative and such a great and friendly guide. We were lucky enough to be taken to some private access locations! Would definitely recommend, even if you’re not a fan of LOTR!

I liked stunning views. Our guide provided us with a detailed information about location and interesting facts. The was a complimentary tea/coffee and snacks - all you need in a cold weather and when you have magnificent views around. The van was warm and comfortable. Would take that tour again! I wish it could be extended for a full day tour but still must to do when you are in Queenstown. Thank you!
