I am not a Hobbit fan. We booked because my partner loves it BUT even people who aren't Hobbit fans would love this! I couldn't believe the attention to detail and it made me want to go back and watch the films again. My only regret was the lunch which is included couldn't have been actually in The Green Dragon Pub.
Wonderful!!! We loved it! The tour guide, Tony, was so friendly and knowledgable. The day was beautiful.. The place is awesome. We had time to take many nice pictures and enjoy the Green Dragon cider. and the Shire lunch.
Excellent! The set is fabulous - especially if you are into details or if you're a fan. The guides were very informative, friendly and helpful.
Had a great time. The bus driver was excellent in providing a great tour to and from Hobbiton. The Hobbiton tour guide was part of the Lord of the Rings Movie crew and was well educated and informative on the tour. The lunch was great and so was the ale!
The tour guide, Dave, was very informative and willing to make the tour the best for us. Hobbiton was amazing if you're a Lord of the Rings fan.
An early start ensured that we arrived at Hobbiton before the crowds, Our bus driver and the guide at Hobbiton were both excellent. Walking around Hobbition was delightful and lunch at The Shires was delicious. A short morning tea break, and an ice-cream stop on the way back to Auckland by 3 pm were both enjoyable. My only reservation would be that for those with mobility problems need to be aware that the walking on gravelled paths, and with some hills, might prove a little challenging.
It was a fantastic tour. The guide was very kind and her story was very interesting. We really enjoyed it. It was one of the best tours we've ever joined.
Excellent tour. The Driver/Guide is an asset to Bush and Beach who operate this tour on your behalf. She was helpful, Polite, knowledgeable and nothing appeared too difficult. The package was excellent with sufficient time to enjoy the day.
The whole experience was a positive one for our family (including a 13 and 10 year old). The driver, Wayne, from the moment he picked us up at our Auckland Hotel was excellent for the whole day. The tour guide at Hobbiton was exceedingly good. Having a small group 11 people all together meant our experience was a very intimate one. Fantastic life experience.
Excellent ! Hobbiton is a must visit for Lord of the Rings fan !
This trip was excellent. We started early in the morning which was good so that the return by 3 PM could be met. The 2 hour bus ride was broken up by a morning coffee/tea/pastry break. We arrived early before the bus loads of tour groups. Lunch was served by our tour guide. On the way back we stopped for some well known ice cream. There were only four of us and the guide was informative and friendly. He really tried to make our day pleasant.
my wife enjoyed the tour very much. She is a fan of the Lord of the ring and Hobbits. I also had a good time. The trip was quite long.
We looked forward to the Shire tour with great anticipation and were not disappointed. It was a delightful last day of our visit to New Zealand. Anyone who loves the Lord of the Rings movies will totally enjoy seeing the Hobbiton movie set and perhaps having a glass of South Farlington ale.
Best Tour for LOTR and The Hobbit fans, this place is a MUST, very beautiful and there’s a green dragon pub opened now! Ginger Beer is great. The guide is very nice and helpful! 3
