Magical and Lovely!

We had such an amazing time on the Edoras tour. The tour guides were well informed, a lot of fun, and made for a great time. Lunch was amazing after that hefty hike up mount Sunday. Would absolutely rate this Do Not Miss and we will absolutely do it again some day!

Count on a day of lots of driving hours. It's about 2,5 hours there, and 2,5 hours back again. But our guide Maria told wonderful stories so the time flew by! The location makes it all worthwhile!!!!

A MUST for any LotR fan

The groups are a reasonable size and my guide was knowledgeable and able to answer most of my questions. I can't imagine visiting New Zealand as a Lord of the Rings fan without going to Edoras but it's a majestic slice of scenery regardless of whether or not you're a hardcore fan.
