Glenorchy Sightseeing Private Charter from Queenstown

The private tour begins with a breath-taking journey along the shores of Lake Wakatipu. This is one of New Zealand’s most famous scenic road journeys with spectacular views around each bend. After passing through the sleepy township of Glenorchy at the base of the lake we enter the awe-inspiring Mt Aspiring World Heritage area where Middle Earth comes to life. You will literally arrive in Paradise to enjoy some refreshments with the glacial lakes, ancient forests and neck stretching peaks of the film trilogy as your backdrop. Throughout the tour our experienced local guides will give you great insight into why the region was an inspiration for so many movies and how it has brought the vision of Jackson and Tolkien to life on the big screen.

One of the best tours we have ever done. Our tour driver, Scott, had a wealth of knowledge of the area, the history and the environment. We were delighted to see endangered kārearea (NZ falcon) and the vistas are stunning. Scott took the time to explain the history of the gold mining and had stories about the characters who lived and worked the goldfields as well as the origins of Queenstown. We can highly recommend this family owned tour company.

Scott was absolutely fantastic to deal with and he really went out of his way to make our experience the best it could be. The off road buggy’s were so much fun and the breath taking views were an added bonus. Highly recommend!!!

First trip to Queenstown and we booked this trip with 2 x 9 year olds and one 12 year old (& 2 adults). We all rated it best thing we did across the week. Peter was a terrific tour guide, giving us excellent & informative Lord of the Rings insights. Was cool to see the LOTR scene playing on the car iPad and then look up & there was the actual location. The excited screaming and squealing from the kids during the 4 wheel driving down the river near Arrowtown probably sent poor Peter deaf but he happily obliged to give us a few extra spins around the steeper parts of the river that sent the kids wild with happiness ! The free 40 minutes in Arrowtown was a good intro to the town and inspired us to go back later on to take a closer look. All up a really worthwhile tour highly recommended.
