The bus was on time despite the Auckland rush hour traffic - a good start. The tour was brilliant, the young lady guide was knowledgeable, enthusiastic and brought the place to life. The after tour ale and dinner were most welcome and enjoyable. A thoroughly good day out.
Excellent tour and very well organised. Geoff was a superb guide and gave us valuable information on the drive to Hobbiton - he really knew his stuff! The stops enroute were just long enough to get takeaway coffee and pastries - perfect. Everything was so well planned out at Hobbiton and in both directions of travel. Highly recommended.
my tour leader Alex is really good. He is very enthusiastic and knowledgeable.
Hobbiton is a wonderful place, I will come back someday.
AMAZING, great to do in a small group with engaged guide and being early on set. Highly recommend this tour.
Thoroughly enjoyed the tour and our guide was very knowledgeable and funny too.
This is really a good tour to go on, driver is professional and entertaining and well organized.
The tour, driver, and guides were all wonderful. It's a must see while visiting Auckland. The drive was very nice and a chance to see the countryside.
We found this tour excellent. Our tour guide was very good and knowledgeable not only on Hobbiton but on the areas we were going through.
Our bus driver Alexander was very friendly and knowledgeable! Our tour guide Emma was also amazing giving us all the details and stories. I would definitely recommend is tour!
Great from start to finish. Nice bus for transportation, plenty of time to visit the set and take pictures. We enjoyed the shop, and had a very nice included lunch buffet and drink. My husband is the Hobbit fan, but after seeing the set, I am now a fan. We are going to watch the DVD again.
A wonderful tour. We had such knowledgeable guides. The meal was perfect.
A fantastic way to do a day trip out to Hobbiton. And Hobbiton itself is totally worth it! I would love to visit again to do the evening tour and to grab some more of their special brew.
This was a fabulous experience! The best day ever! Our driver was very friendly and the tour was informative. Food was delicious and the fact we got our own tour guide for Hobbiton was amazing! I would go again in an instant! PS. Don't forget to use your voucher in the gift shop!
We enjoyed our day with Alexander..good driver...super movie set with excellent local tour guide Leah!
Loved it! Would love to go again!!!
Some parts did feel a bit rushed.
The pathway can be slippery when wet.
The food was superb!
A great tour. Would even do it again. Our bus driver was very informative, giving us information about many things along the way. Our Hobbiton guide, Hope was also very informative and knowledgeable on everything related to the movies. Detailed information given and we enjoyed it very much. Tour ended with a great lunch too! Well worth doing.
We had a wonderful day at Hobbit-on. It was raining quite hard but it just didn't matter. Warren was our driver for the day, and he was informative and entertaining. The tour itself was magic, the luncheon was delicious, and Warren helped make the day one of the best days.
Thanks so much,
Cheers, Kathy and Craig Stewart
As a LOTR fan this was an absolute dream come true.
Our guide Tony was amazing, not only regarding Hobbiton but in filling us in on interesting information regarding New Zealand on our way to Hobbiton.
Loved it, definitely a must do!
Pick-up in the morning was on-time and easy, our tour driver gave us lots of laughs on the way to Hobbiton. When we reached Hobbiton, we had Shaun who was fantastic. He really knew his stuff. Being able to see how much detail went into the making of these films, really does have to be seen to be believed. The lunch was amazing. Because we were one of the very first groups on site, meant we had first dibs on the delicious food. Make sure you save room for dessert. The trip home was picturesque and we stopped for ice-cream. I'd eaten my fair share at lunch, but was told by others that it was delicious.
If you're a Lord of the Rings fan or even if you're not, I can highly recommend this tour.
the guides are filled with knowledge about the movie set which helps bring it to life! The scenery is beautiful and had lots of fun!
OMG! Amazing! Kept pinching myself to make sure it was real. Hardly slept at all the night before because I was so excited. the tour lived up to all my expectations! Great included lunch even with my dietary restrictions.
Second group to arrive to the set, so we had amazing pictures wihout the crowd.
Tour guide was friendly and we have a wonderful time
