This was an awesome adventure. Four wheeling through the rivers and over the mountains, the guides were great with giving us background and history of the areas we went. They even stopped for a hot beverage break!

Great to hear you enjoyed our Macetown adventure. It really is a hidden gem and with over 20 river crossings each way it's a real off road experience! Hopefully we will see you again in the not too distant future

Went on a tour with Alix and had a blast. The scenery is stunning and all you have to do is enjoy as you're driven around to various LOTR filming locations. Would highly recommend!
