Lewis aka lilchef1 was amazing and very informative. Many of the people, including me were not into lord of the rings so he included more information of the area.

Hi ralphy1324, thank you for taking your time to leave your comments. Even for non LOTR fans, they still can have fun, enjoy scenery and off-road experience during tours. We will pass on your words to Lewis and hope to see you soon!
