I had an awesome time on this tour. I am a big LOTR fan and found it so exciting to visit shooting locations, find out some cool facts, and of course, dress up! We had a small group that got close over the course of the afternoon. I would recommend to anyone with a bit of interest! Even if you know nothing about LOTR, you will have a great time... :) ~~ Kudos to Shane- great guide!

An Amazing Experience

The tour was beyond amazing the 2 guides we had, Shane and Fabio, we both very knowledgeable, and made the whole tour alot of fun. We were only a small group of 3 which made the experience even better because we got to enjoy alot more for our time! Thanks so much for the experience and I would reccomend this to any Lord of the Rings fan and even people who love to feel apart of our filmography history! Cheers Ryan

The tour was great. Lot of locations of Middle Earth. Our guide Shane was very knowledgeable and made us enjoy the experience. He made a lot of photos of us in all the locations and playing with the swords. A lot of information about the filming of the movies and funny facts. Highly recommended.

Perfect day

Was tremendous to see the shooting locations of my favourite movies. Shane was the perfect guide with great knowledge of the movies, the locations, local history etc etc. We were also blessed to have great company and amazing weather. Highly recommended even for the most casual of fan.
