What others say about us

My partner and I   took this tour back in May 2013 and we still talk about it to our friends and family! Mark took us on the tour and he knew every question we threw at him   and even threw in other film and TV locations. Mark’s professionalism, knowledge and down-to-earth attitude is a true testament to this amazing family-owned company.


Our guide was great. She has vast knowledge on the area and being a Kiwi, of course
she shares a lot about the country. Me and the others in the group were not
die-hard LOTR fans. We loved the movies and wanted to know the info behind it,
but also we’d like to know more about Glenorchy and Paradise. It was great during
the driving (we had a lot of interesting info) and when we stopped and stepped
outside; the views were just spectacular.


There were many LOTR tours to choose from and I’m glad I made the right choice in choosing Pure Glenorchy LOTR tours.


Mark was an excellent guide and gave us lots of information on the local area – not only information about films but about the local wildlife and scenery. We had a fantastic picnic morning tea – yummy sandwiches, apricot slice, biscuits and a cuppa (even filter coffee!). Fabulous scenery and we got to see locations we would not have been able to visit on our own – I can highly recommend this tour
