What a fantastic way to travel back to Pelennor Fields whether you are a LOTR lover or are merely interested in the natural beauty of the location and it's use in the film. Dawn was such a pleasure to have as a tour guide. Not only can you feel the love she has for the trilogy but is also so... More

We were scheduled for a tour which included whale watching in Kaikoura during our visit to New Zealand. Unfortunately, the entire area was closed due to the recent earthquake. The tour company offered us only the LOTR Tour as an alternate. A refund was never mentioned. I'm pretty sure we would have preferred the refund. It's a long ride to... More

Hi there, Im sorry that your tour was not what you expected, however you have posted your review to the wrong tour. I believe that the tour you took was the EDORUS tour to Rohan in the valley you seak of in your review. We are in Twizel we are only 5 minutes drive from the location and we do... More

We went in with no expectations, and were superbly surprised. Pelennor fields are beautiful, although a bit plain on first sight. What really brought it to life was our wonderful tour guide - Dawn. She had super interesting anecdotes throughout the tour with lots of behind the scenes stories - a treat for any LOTR lover and a great way... More

The activity is only recommended if you are huge LOTR fan. It is quite boring otherwise. The guide is very passionate and knowledgeable about the various LOTR scenes and where and how were they filmed. 2 hours is too long, I recommend you do the 1 hour tour if you are not a very big fan.

We arrived in Twizel in the middle of the afternoon. Although it was late, Dawn, our tour guide, kindly agreed to provide us with a private tour at dinnertime. She arrived promptly at 6:15 pm and took us on an almost 2 hour tour. She was very informative. The tour was a lot of fun for both fans and non-fans... More

Myself and my brother are LOTR fans and we had a tour by Dawn last week and we were really impressed with how much we learnt and how interesting all the information was. Dawn is very passionate about lord of the rings and it made it that much more amazing. It wasnt a standard tour by a robot, it was... More

We had the best time out on a stellar afternoon with Dawn from the Lord of the Rings Twizel Tour! She shared with us heaps of insights into the making of the trilogy being part of the extras herself. It was an amazing day out and the whole group had a blast dressing up and reenacting scenes at the end.... More

Dawn is awesome, she truly understands the passion people feel for the film and locations. We had her all to ourselves for our tour and we thoroughly enjoyed the sights with her. A must do if travelling in or near Twizel.

If you’re a LOTR fan (fan to hardcore to LOTR is life level), then this a must do. If you’re a casual LOTR fan, then this a must do. If you don’t know what is LOTR, then this is a must do. If you hate LOTR, then this is a must do too. Each tour session is filled with “you-never-know-behind-the-scenes”... More
