Amazing views and an amazing guide!

★★★★★ Reviewed by Mark on 2019-09-02
I booked this tour for my husband who is a huge Lord of The Rings fan, I just went to be with him and I am sooo glad I did. Not only were the views amazing, our guide (Roland) was so nice and very knowledgeable. We stopped on the side of the road to take pictures and he pointed out movie filming locations. I was in complete awe of the beauty of this trip. It was the perfect time for a cruise. We did 9am and it ended at 1pm. Which gave us the rest of the day to explore more of the city.

Great tour in amazing scenery

Had a great day! Glenorchy and Paradise are absolutely stunning. We were only 6 guest plus our super friendly and knowledgeable guide Fluffy (Tania) in a comfy Mercedes van, and there where no other tour busses in Paradise at the end of the trip where we had picnic. I really enjoyed seeing the film locations from Lord of The Rings and hear the background stories. But this tour is for anyone who enjoys stunning scenery really.

This was a beautiful afternoon meander through one of the most stunning countries I have visited! A nice alternative if you don't want to or have the time for a longer day tour to Milford Sound or further south. Padriac was super knowledgable and funny and he really made the trip. He made our friendly little tour group feel welcome and really looked after us. Thank You!
