Shane was an amazing guide, extremely well versed in LOTR trivia. He is extremely friendly, which makes even the driving parts of the tour enjoyable. Even if you're not a huge LOTR fan, the views are stunning and worth the visit! Thanks again, Shane!

Handling the weaponry and having photos taken with it in hand. Wonderful fun. Seeing the countryside where scenes were actually filmed and getting an understanding of how the panorama was stitched together to achieve the onscreen visual effects was eye opening.

What a great day this was! Shane was a fantastic guide, his knowledge of LoTR stuff and local info and myths was great, and really elevated this tour beyond my (already high) expectations. Great photo ops, and loved getting to put on cloaks and play with the replica weapons
