Offering tours of Christchurch and Canterbury, Hassle-free Tours is one of the region's best ways to see the New Zealand tourist attractions that draw visitors from around the world. Between discovering Christchurch in a restored double-decker bus to speeding through the Waimak Gorge in a jet boat, there are options to suit everyone’s interests.A favourite among visitors to New Zealand is the unique Lord of the Rings Tour, which ventures into the Canterbury high country for an exciting 4WD ride to the filming location of Edoras, the capital city for the Rohan people in the film trilogy.

My friend and I came to New Zealand for the first time in the hopes of seeing some incredible scenery and being able to tour some of the Lord of the Rings filming locations. After comparing many tours we booked this one as it seemed to be the most immersive. It certainly did not disappoint and was an incredible experience... More

I'm a big LOTR fan and this wasn't the first LOTR tour I had done, but it was definitely the best. I was picked up early in the morning right in front of my hostel in Christchurch and our guide explained us immediately the plan for the day. We spent most part of the day on the road, but I... More

Even as locals, we learnt heaps on this tour. It was a great way to see the city and be informed of the rebuild by someone who had up-to-date knowledge - thanks Ross. We enjoyed the relaxed but very informative tour.

Scenic beauty of the Alpine mountains is excellent, don;t miss it. Hasslefree tours takes care of everything on time and it is a good value for money.

After arriving in Christchurch late last night and feeling jet lagged, my son and I were looking forward to the tour. We were picked up in the morning by our cheerful and very informative guides, Maria and Phil. The scenery was breathtaking and the guides commentary added to our whole experience. Thanks Maria and Phil.

This is a must do for all LOTR fans. By going with hassle free tour to visit Edoras, you got to go by using the same route that the actors used. It was fun going passed the rivers to go to the base and then it's a moderately trail to go to the top of the hill. The beauty of... More

We were very pleased with the entirety of our tour. The drive was beautiful, Mount Sunday (or Edoras) was breathtaking, and lunch at the end was great! Our expectations were definitely surpassed. Also, our guide, Philip, was a joy to be around. We would definitely recommend the experience to anyone!

I joined the hour long Christchurch city tour on an open top bus reminiscent of the UK red buses. It was really interesting. The guide/ driver really knew his stuff and told us everything we wanted or needed to know about the earthquakes in Christchurch. We saw buildings that have been totally destroyed, others which have been rebuilt, and yet... More

It was excellent adventure the tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly. The scenery was amazing and the lunch was average with bubbles. I definitely recommend it to all my friends and at my workplace, I will certainly come back again next year I want to see how it looks like during winter.

It's my first time in New Zealand and I've flown into Christchurch from a week's stay in Queenstown but I can guarantee that this was the most enjoyable tour I've been on thus far.
