Great tour. Had a great driver and guide at Hobbiton. Highly recommend the early tour.
We loved the trip. The driver was friendly engaging through out the trip, and the guide at Hobbiton provided interesting and often amusing anecdotes about the Hobbiton set and what went on during the filming.
gloworm caves mazing and pleasantly surprised with the Hobbiton tour
Me and my 2 teenage sons really enjoyed this tour even though it is a very long day and just under 600klms travelled. Waitomo was very cool and would be worth spending a bit more time there to explore the other caves. Hobbiton was amazing and sooo gorgeous, it made it all worth while. I loved it, especially finishing off with a drink in the Green Dragon. We would definitely recommend this tour or maybe if you have more time do each separately.
The tour was terrific. Our tour guide Paul was great fun and very knowledgeable (and drove sensibly!). The tour locations, lunch and whole itinerary were great. And we also learnt heaps about the local area which was a bonus. I would highly recommend this trip. It was also fun to spend the day with other Lord of the Rings fans and muck around taking photos.
Jack our tour guide was fantastic... Very knowledgeable in every thing Lord of the Rings.... Plus some!!!!
Amazing experience! Very well organized, the driver was awesome and his facts were super interesting and very funny. Hobbiton is breathtaking. Super recommended wether you're a fan of Tolkien and the movies or not!
Phenomenal experience!! Everything is taken care of, the incredibly friendly and professional tour guides tell you at each step where and what to do and take care of everything for you. All you have to do is keep your camera ready and enjoy the experience!
The Waitamo Caves and Hobbiton tours themselves are amazing, with the tour guides answering all your questions and making the tours really relaxed and fun! Despite the careful planning, we never felt like we were being rushed, which was a testament to the professionalism and experience of the guides.
Definitely book through Viator, all we needed was to show a print out once at pickup and the rest was taken care of for us!
Hobbiton was fantastic and a highlight was the ale at the Green Dragon Inn. The hobbit holes have been restored after filming of The Hobbit and there is so much detail to the sets. Well worth a visit and the distance from Auckland is not too bad - lovely scenery on the way.
This was a beautiful tour, the guide was informative and fun. I am not a huge Lord of the Rings fan but many on the tour were. the scenery was worth the trip. what a beautful part of the country. I was traveling alone and was very comfortable with the group , everyone was very friendly. Well worth the time and the money.
Doing what: 'Lord of the Rings' Hobbiton Movie Set Tour
Excellent tour! We got picked up from our hotel and transferred to a big bus. The driver who also doubled as a guide around Auckland was great and responsible. He briefed us before and after each stop and divided us into groups that were doing separate tours.
The Hobbiton tour and glow worm caves were fantastic, took loads of pictures! Great for our family of 4 with varying interests.
Such a great way to see as many attractions possible in Rotorua as well as the famous Hobbiton movie Set. All our guides were fantastic. The farm show at Agrodome was a real laugh, they really get everyone involved no matter you age! I even got to milk a cow! Te Puia, there is nothing like this anywhere! Such an incredible and unique place that not only offers visitors an insight into the history of the Maori Culture but also the history of Rotorua and the Geothermal activity. The Hobbiton movie set is amazing. You are taken into a whole new world and it’s just so amazing. A Fantastic tour and highly recommended for those wanting to see as much of Rotorua on a short timeline.
This was a fantastic day. The caves were beautiful and the history of them very interesting. Hobbiton Movie set was fun with a nice walk around and lots of photo opportunities. Our bus driver/tour guide was very informative and kept us entertained while on the road.
Every part of this tour was fantastic, from the bus driver to the lunch and Hobbiton ofcourse.
3 mates and i decided for this Hobbiton tour bec. it was the only one to fit our flight schedule. We were sceptic at first, but the tour was a blast! A friendly bus driver (Tom) made the trip highly enjoyable, and our tour guide (Eric, 90 years old by the way!) had amazing LotR knowledge. A+ :-)
