Dawn picked Kate and I up, we were the only two on the tour, and we drove out to the sight where the Pellenore battle fields are- the big fight at the end of the 3rd movie. Along with a DVD player and excellent and informative commentary she showed us around. We got to dress up in a variety of costumes and there were many swords for us to pose with at the exact sight from the movie, it was just fantastic. I heartily recommend this tour, great value for money and such great fun. Do it!

Brilliant. Fantastic. Absolutely priceless!
This was our third time doing this tour... YES our third time! We love it THAT much.
We have had a different guide each time - all of them involved in the making in some form - and each time we have discovered an extra little pieces of information about our favourite movies!
They really do make it fun, interactive and very personal.
Guaranteed (good weather or bad weather) to get spectacular photos, and be the child within, escaping to Middle Earth!
This really is a MUST do tour... when we return to New Zealand, we will absolutely be doing this tour again!

We didi the tour with Dawn on a quiet and beautiful sunday morning. It was our first LOTR tour and is still the best, it has its all: location, views, props and weapons. Whereelse you got the opportunity to be a rider of Rohan, running down the hill screaming "DEATH!!!!!" and only a couple of minutes later you are the witchking, being stabbed by Eowyn. Looking forward to our next visit.

We wanted to do a LOTR tour on our New Zealand trip and picked this one in Tiwzel to see Pelenor fields (2 hours). Had a blast even though the weather was poor, but on the plus side we got a personal tour. Got lots of great, fun, pictures, and we really enjoyed the dvd clips and photo comparisons to show exactly what we were looking at. Our guide had a lot of really interesting background information - and I only already knew ~10% of the trivia she told us, which is pretty good considering the back in college I watched every minute of the Extended edition's special features and audio commentaries.
