An amazing day even if you’re not a LOTR fan!

This was a great day out: a small group trip out with an informed, entertaining guide. The scenery was so spectacular that it’s a terrific experience even for those who aren’t Lord of the Rings fans! Not physically difficult, and a delicious lunch. Highly recommended!!

Perfect for any Lord of the Rings Lover!

This trip was absolutely fantastic! I would highly recommend this for any Lord of the Rings fan! Hassle Free Tours picked us up and dropped us off directly from our hotel, so we did not have to worry about transportation. We were on a 4WD bus with two tour guides full of knowledge about the surrounding area and LOTR. Once on our way, we stopped at a beautiful lake and then continued on the way to Edoras. Edoras itself was beautiful and is a must-see. If you so choose, you can even take up a sword or two and the Rohan flag!

Highly recommended & you will get that Insta-worthy photo!

Highly recommended this tour whether you are LOTR fans or not. Honestly I never watch any of LOTR movies nor read the trilogies, I was more interested in the beautiful scenery. However, the commentary given by our guide (Kris) and the documentaries shown during the drive provide me enough information to catch up to and interested in it. Lunch was plentiful and delicious, the tour was very well organised and Kris couldn't help us enough to share information until the last minute when the tour finished. It was almost perfect, the only thing missing from this tour was Sir Peter Jackson himself.... :)
