Matamata, New Zealand

Great Sights were wanting to capitalise on the increasing number of Japanese, Mandarin and Spanish visitors who were choosing to travel independently round many of New Zealand’s main tourism cities.

As a way to capture these independent travellers, Great Sights wanted to create a multilingual commentary experience for a travellers keen to explore the Hobbiton Movie Set from Lord of the Rings Trilogy.

Greats Sights approached Kruse Global to provide a turnkey solution of commentary content and technology.

Kruse Global provided an “open ended” wireless GPS multilingual commentary solution that gave Great Sights the flexibility to add additional languages as required.

With informative commentary that highlighted all of the points of interest from Auckland to Hobbiton, Japanese, Mandarin and Spanish visitors could confidently explore Hobbiton with complete independence as opposed to being part of an organised tour.
