Middle Earth Experience

Fantastic journey from beginning to end. Joel is an amazing guide with lots of in-depth knowledge and full of fun facts. We enjoyed a hot cuppa tea and slice nestled in amongst the stunning mountains and lake surroundings of Glenorchy. You can see why Paradise was used in soo many movies just for the sheer beauty there. Highly recommend this tour to anyone who is a fan of LOTR or not. The Scenery is magical and my hubby enjoyed riding shotgun opening and closing the gates. 👍🏾

Great experience

Our ‘Italian Sméagol’ was a wonderful tour guide with lots of anecdotes and information about the areas we were driving through. The scenery was spectacular and lots of photo opportunities. Loved the dress up and movie still-location comparisons.
