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+ :-)

While in Australia we booked this tour over the internet. Our tour started being picked up at the motel. The tour operator, John was excellent, a wealth of knowledge. He handed us over to Aiden who certainly knew his stuff. He was informative and comical in his description of the facility and certainly knew his subject. The tour was more than we expected and a memorable experience. Thank you.

What a wonderful day. My husband and son are the Hobbit fans but I thoroughly enjoyed this trip also. Small bus, great driver, beautiful day. Lovely lunch. Worth every cent. Would definitely recommend this trip.

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.

The whole thing was well planned throughout. The driver/guide was very competent, amusing, helpful and friendly. The tour itself far exceeded expectations and can only be described as incredible. Great value.

our guide from Ottawa , i think, was so enthiusiastic, that it translated to an incredibly enjoyable tour for us. she was excellent and her voice carried well so it was easy to understand and hear.Altogether great--my pics turned out well because it was a cloudy day- lunch was so so but the drinks were good, and the bus trip to the site was very informative and also enjoyable-- the tour was pricey but not to be missed because we ahave a son who is teaching Tolkein as an Eng. and Geog. course in high school here in Prince George and he now has lots of visuals as well as a Gondolph t shirt!

My wife really wanted to do this tour so I went along expecting to be somewhat bored as I am not a big Hobbit fan, plus I wasn't looking forward to a long bus ride to the set and back….The day turned into a very pleasant surprise as the tour operator conducted a very informative narration during the drive through some most fantastic scenery….Hobbiton itself was extremely enjoyable as well with a great lunch/drink on site…I am a Pilot and I pride myself on my navigational skills, but trying to find Hobbiton on your own would be a challenge…I highly recommend this small group tour !!! I was so impressed with this tour that we signed up for the " Best of both Worlds" Auckland tour the next next….also Outstanding !!!

Very well organised and balanced day. Our driver was professional and his running commentary was most entertaining. We loved the stops en route, but what about one at the Matamata (Waimai) cheese factory? Hobbiton was fantastic. Drinks and lunch at the Green Dragon were brilliant. Our guide was great. Congratulations on providing a hot sunny day for us. Altogether an outstanding day out. Our guests from Australia and UK loved it as much as we did.

This was a fantastic tour!!! My only complaint was I felt a bit rushed, I was trying to get really good pictures and video to take home and kept falling behind on the tour. It would be great if they allowed more time to wander around. Overall it was fantastic!!!! I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to explore Hobbiton!! Very well done.
