We did the day tour to Edoras with Heike. It was a real trip to middle earth that also included props from the movie. Scenery was fantastic, day was well planned with good stops for food/drinks etc. Would highly recommend to all - even if you haven't seen the movies the scenery is stunning and well worth the trip - Andy T
Simply beautiful. I have no words to describe this amazing journey through Edoras, Rohan and Helm's deep. The organisation of this tour was flawless, the tour guide (Steve) was great. It is unforgettable and worth every single penny. One of the best experience I have had in my entire life!!!!

The LOTR was the most amazing tour i did while in NZ. if you are put off by the price, dont be. it is worth every single penny. the tour guide is very knowledgeable about local history, geology and the trilogy. he gave us great advice on picture taking and was great fun to hang out with. you can really tell when somebody's job is their hobby and they are very passionate about what they do.
