The hobbiton movie set tour was excellent. There were four of us on the tour. It was very personalized and our tour guide was extremely informative. This tour is highly recommended.

Great experience. Left early in the morning so we avoided big crowds and was able to get photos of Hobbition without people in them. Our driver was very friendly and had a great knowledge of New Zealand. She even stopped on the way back so we could get ice cream! The tour itself in Hobbition was fantastic, our guide's knowledge was immense. Highly recommended experience.
