  • I absolutely loved this experience, so glad we went. The attention to detail on the set is absolutely amazing and the surroundings are just absolutely beautiful. Such stunning scenery. Felt quite magical to visit the place I have seen on the big screen. Tour guides were great and it was very well organised. Family friendly too. The coffee at Shires Rest was very good. Highly recommended!
  • Where do I start ... from the minute we got on the bus with Sonny till the moment he dropped us back he made the whole experience magical, fun, action-packed and he didn't leave one member of our tour out. He took the time to remember people's names/locations etc. Helped take group pictures etc. The main complex staff were also friendly and helpful. Building , bus etc were so clean and welcoming. I was treated for my birthday today and it made my whole birthday just perfect, thank you all .
