We had a great time. We learn a lot about film shooting. Being a couple is great, we can reproduce some scenes in disguise. The explanations are very clear with a very good knowledge ... And it's surprising to be in the same place as the filming. The landscapes are beautiful. We recommend this tour. Thank you Dawn for this... More

Even though the shooting location is nothing but a vast field with no actual sets left, this is a really fun and informative tour. Dawn is a great guide with lots of anecdotes and details to tell. She was even so nice to take pictures for me on her phone because I was stupid enough to forget mine in the... More

What a fantastic way to travel back to Pelennor Fields whether you are a LOTR lover or are merely interested in the natural beauty of the location and it's use in the film. Dawn was such a pleasure to have as a tour guide. Not only can you feel the love she has for the trilogy but is also so... More

We were scheduled for a tour which included whale watching in Kaikoura during our visit to New Zealand. Unfortunately, the entire area was closed due to the recent earthquake. The tour company offered us only the LOTR Tour as an alternate. A refund was never mentioned. I'm pretty sure we would have preferred the refund. It's a long ride to... More

Hi there, Im sorry that your tour was not what you expected, however you have posted your review to the wrong tour. I believe that the tour you took was the EDORUS tour to Rohan in the valley you seak of in your review. We are in Twizel we are only 5 minutes drive from the location and we do... More

We went in with no expectations, and were superbly surprised. Pelennor fields are beautiful, although a bit plain on first sight. What really brought it to life was our wonderful tour guide - Dawn. She had super interesting anecdotes throughout the tour with lots of behind the scenes stories - a treat for any LOTR lover and a great way... More

The activity is only recommended if you are huge LOTR fan. It is quite boring otherwise. The guide is very passionate and knowledgeable about the various LOTR scenes and where and how were they filmed. 2 hours is too long, I recommend you do the 1 hour tour if you are not a very big fan.

We arrived in Twizel in the middle of the afternoon. Although it was late, Dawn, our tour guide, kindly agreed to provide us with a private tour at dinnertime. She arrived promptly at 6:15 pm and took us on an almost 2 hour tour. She was very informative. The tour was a lot of fun for both fans and non-fans... More
