Best tour ever

"This tour is the best tour I’ve ever been on and worth every cent I’ve paid (and more!). I recommend this to anyone, LOTR fan or not. The scenery was breathtaking and beyond this world; no photo can do justice. The tour was also well-run, with a very professional, thoughtful, and knowledgable guide. Put this on your must-do list in your next trip around New Zealand."

A beautiful sunny day to see whales

"I had a great experience on this tour. I was picked up at my hotel and we headed to Kaikoura. Our guide showed us the sights as we drove to Kaikoura. We had a small group which was nice as we got to chat. The whale watch was wonderful. We saw a sperm whale right away. Then shortly after we saw another! I would take this tour again."

Well worth it!

"My first time to NZ and I couldn't have started it better. Booked our tickets from Australia, before we left, and arranged for pick up at Methven Information Centre. Bus arrived promptly on time. We were greeted by Hammond, who was our driver for the day. He was a font of knowledge, having worked in the sound industry and also with Peter Jackson on the LOTR movies. Hammond knew this locality and the weather and warned us that the wind builds up where we will be going. Everything was great about this tour! The tour guide, the added props, the light lunch afterwards and even the morning coffee break at the Staveley Store. Highly recommended, you won't forget it!"

Whale watching

"We had a great day out for this activity. The weather was perfect and the experience seeing the sperm whale was amazing. Would highly recommend it. Our guide for the day, Stephen, was brilliant...very funny and provided us with lots of information along the way from Christchurch to Kaikoura and back."

Highly recommended & you will get that Insta-worthy photo!

"Highly recommended this tour whether you are LOTR fans or not. Honestly I never watch any of LOTR movies nor read the trilogies, I was more interested in the beautiful scenery. However, the commentary given by our guide (Kris) and the documentaries shown during the drive provide me enough information to catch up to and interested in it. Lunch was plentiful and delicious, the tour was very well organised and Kris couldn't help us enough to share information until the last minute when the tour finished. It was almost perfect, the only thing missing from this tour was Sir Peter Jackson himself.... :)"
