    Fantastic!!! Joseph looked after me when I got there, and Sean was a great tour guide! They really took the experience to the next level by letting me ride a retired LOTR horse. Grateful I was experiencing a moment to relive my fantasy world.

    The view is simply spectacular. I enjoyed the chilly air, riding on my horse with a superb guide to point out all the wonderful surrounding views. Will do again next time i and #39;m there...
