Wish it were longer! Both guides were AMAZING. Especially Badger (not sure I got the name right!) But he was so energetic and seemed like he really cared about what he did-for a HUGE LOTR fan to go to NZ for the FIRST time the whole experience was AMAZING. LOVED it. Can't wait to come back and do a longer tour!

Belinda was very helpful in all the arrangement for the packages and even helped me at the last minute when I arrived in Queenstown and had my luggage delayed by the airline by shifting around some of the items in the itinerary.

We had a blast with our guide Marty. He brought us to alot of picture worthy sites with reference to the movie sites. Had a short break in the woods where he provided us with hot chocolate and biscuits. He even had capes and weapons for us to play with and take pictures with! Definitely would recommend this tour to have a look at the LOTR sites beyond Queenstown.

Reply from Everything Travel Group

Hi Tim. Thanks for taking the time to offer your feedback. I'm glad you thought the Paradise Safaris guide was very good but I'm sorry to hear about negative experience in the van and the lack of Lord of the Rings information that was provided to you. Paradise Safaris take a great deal of pride in the tours they operate so I will certainly pass on your comments to them so they can ensure these issues are dealt with. Customer feedback like yours is what tour operators depend on to ensure they continue to improve the level of service they provide.

The tour would have been excellent if we had a nice sunny day but it was raining all day. So I was disappointed not to have been able to get the same great photos as I've expected from the website. But my son and I did have an exhilirating and a little scary experience on the 4x4 wheel drive truck and going through seemingly treacherous streams of water. Our tour guide Phil was friendly and amusing.

Hi,

Just wondering what type of vehicle this tour travels in and is it bumpy?
What's the maximum number of people that's allowed per tour?

Regards,

Selina

Comments

Hi Selina. The vehicles used on the Paradise Safaris tour from Queenstown are small 7 seater mini vans and numbers are kept to a maximum of 6 passengers per trip. The road to Glenorchy from Queenstown is tar sealed so it is not bumpy but it does go off road for some of the trip which may be a little more bumpy but its definitely not four wheel driving. What date were you thinking of booking for?

Just wondering if we have to pay for infants? Bubb will be 5 months old.

Comments

Hi Tiff. Yes children under 3 years of age do travel for free on the Paradise Safari Lord of the Rings tour in Queenstown. When you book online via the Book Now button on our website, just be sure to mention that you have an infant in the 'additional information' field and we will ensure the guides organise a free baby seat for you.

Is it possible to do the rafting - shotover river (that starts at 1pm) after the lord of the rings tour? Will we make it in time?
If we were to buy the tickets in advance and we do not make it, what happens then?

Comments

Hi Sarah,

It's going to be tight. In fact I wouldn't recommend this as you only have 30 minutes to get from the 4WD to the Rafting and if you get back 10 or 15 minutes late you will not have enough time to make the check in and registration for the rafting let alone grab some lunch, which you will need for the rafting trip! I think it's a much better move to spread these trips over 2 days.

we are going to stay at Queenstown East 6, 65 Robertson St., Frankton. do you offer a free pick up from our place of accommodation? and is there a family pass for the trip?

Comments

Hi Gemma,

There are pick up points all along Frankton Road, so you will just need to make your way to one of these. When you book I will let you know which is closest to your location.

Is it possible to fit in this tour and the helicopter/jet boat ride on the same day as we are only in town for one day.

Comments

Hi Bob,

Yes you can do both products in the same day. Take the Heliscenic departing at 8:30am, you will be finished and back into central Queenstown by 12pm. This will give you time for Lunch and then a 1:30pm departure for the Lord of The Rings Tour.

It will be an action packed day, but a lot of fun.

Regards,

Nigel

I sort of guess that given it's winter and there is lots of snow, we won't get the best out of the LOTR tour. would it be best to come back in summer

Comments

Hi Graham, to be honest snow doesn't really affect the Paradise Safari Tour. Although snow can fall where the tour takes place this is very rare, even in Winter, and if it does fall it generally does not settle so the tour is fine to do all year round.

hi,we have a 3yr old and a 1 yr old do we have to pay child fares for them?

Comments

Hi Valerie. Both your 1 year old and 3 year old would travel free of charge and car seats would be provided. Just bear in mind that it is about a 130km round trip, although there are a lot of stops within that distance. When making your booking please just note in the "additional information" field that you will have a 1 year old and 3 year old with you.

I am just wondering which "lord of the ring" tour will give me the most look at the sight-seeing of hte filming locations. I think this one was a good one. Also the props it says do we get to take photograph with them, or do we have to pay for them?

Comments

Hi Tom. The Paradise Safaris tour is a very popular Lord of the Rings tour and I would recommend doing this one to get the most out of the filmed locations. You are able to take your own photographs through the whole tour.
