Wonderful half day tour of some Lord of the Rings filming locations! My fiance and I are huge Lord of the Rings fans (as well as Marvel fans), so this tour was right up our alley! We saw some VERY recognizable locations at several stops throughout the tour (including Rohan and the "Po-Tat-Oes" scene location) as well as breathtaking views of Lake Wakatipu and the Southern Alps. Badger was our tour guide. A Tolkien nerd himself, he knew exactly what he was talking about: giving us some background info on the area, the locals and some first hand filming info that most people wouldn't know. He was fun, energetic and helpful (like I said, he knew the area well). The tour itself was about 4 hours and you drive from location to location in a 4x4 vehicle (our Jeep's name was Balin- so cool!). At the end of the tour, after we leave Isengard, we had some delicious tea and snacks for Elevensies in Lothlorien. Overall, I highly recommend this tour for any LOTR fan or for anyone who wants to get out to Gleonorchy (a gorgeous little town!). You won't be disappointed!
