Our Tour with Dawn was one of the best things we did in New Zealand :) She told us details of filmmaking, showed locations you can’t see without a guide and we were aloud to play with swords :)

We had a great time. We learn a lot about film shooting. Being a couple is great, we can reproduce some scenes in disguise. The explanations are very clear with a very good knowledge ... And it's surprising to be in the same place as the filming. The landscapes are beautiful. We recommend this tour. Thank you Dawn for this... More

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.
