Brent was an amazing tour guide. Definitely made the experience for me!

Definitely worth the trip. The tour guide was fantastic and very knowledgeable. We ran into the guy who played the size-double for Gandalf in the LOTR movies, and took great pictures with actual props in the wonderful mountainous Edoras. Absolutely beautiful.
