TripAdvisor reviews

On our recent Hobbit & LOTR trip through New Zealand, we visited most of the filming locations from the movies. I can honestly say that the Hobbit kayak tour with Pelorus Eco Adventures was definitely the highlight of our journey! A special THANKS to our awesome guide and owner, Shane 😉 !
