Unforgettable for the Die Hard LOTR fan

We were picked up by Hammond in Christchurch and on our way. The weather at Edoras was moody, atmospheric and dark. The weather would have normally made me annoyed, but ended up added to the ambience and made it feel like we had stepped into another world, Middle Earth perhaps? The small group of 6 that went out didn't mind a little wind and rain. We were all so excited to just be there. The hike up was quite easy. Holding our replica weapons made the journey epic. I loved being around fans in this atmosphere. The views were stunning. The mist and shadow and mountain really made the trip for me. I would recommend this to any die hard LOTR fan.

Lotr tour

Great! Love how he knows so much about LOTR and tries to engage us in conversation and showed us videos through out the journey to keep us entertained. I had a little mishap of having my boots sole falling off even before we embark on our journey and he went around helping me to find glue and rubber bands to keep my soles intact for the trip. Thank God it worked and I had a fabulous time and it stayed on even after trekking up and down. Even sent us right back to our Airbnb after that. Thank you so much and I really appreciate it. 100% recommend going on this journey!
