    This was the last thing we did on the final day of our holidays and we definitely kept the best wine to the last. A fantastic experience for any age group, this pensioner really enjoyed it. We also had the benefit of the top tour guide Mark, who kept us informed, entertained and enlightened with his humor and wealth of knowledge on the subject. The breathtaking scenery and marvelous workmanship is something to behold.

    Our experience from arriving to departing was awesome. The ladies in the souvenir shop (offered to get us on an earlier tour if we were interested, and we were) the facilities (toilets) both at the shire’s rest and the green dragon were amazingly clean and well taken care of. Our tour guide, Kevin, was humorous and informative. Patient as well taking pics for everyone along the way. Perfect service at the bar also. The gentleman at the green dragon (sorry, I missed his name) was also great to be around. Funny little story about how the pie came to be which I enjoyed. Friendly and polite. I have recommended to all my family and friends as well as put a big status on fb about it. Keep up the great work. We will be back!

    It was a wonderful experience, very knowledgable guide. Was a very hot day, but still enjoyed it. The ale was beautiful, just what i needed. It was rather expensive though at $89. For a family that would be just too much. It was worth going too. I had not seen any of the hobbit movies, but still enjoyed it.
