What You Can Expect
Excellent tour, prompt pickup and transfer by well informed, humorous and courteous driver.
Tour guide was very knowledgeable, helpful with photographs and patient with stragglers while moving the group through the set.
The Hobbiton Movie Set was an excellent venue, much better than we expected, very good value for money and we would highly recommend it.
I loved this tour! I think I could have lived on this set it was so cute!
Our guide, Sonny was brilliant. He was only young but knew everything there was to know and even quoted some lines from the LOTR films.
At the end of the tour we were all treated to a beer in the famous Green Dragon pub!
Whether you are a huge fan of LOTR or not, the Hobbiton Movie Set Tour is well worth the time and money. The staff was energetic and entertaining and the set itself is maintained as though hobbits were really living there. Definitely should not be missed.
Watch the movie, do this trip then watch the movie again. The director and #39;s eye for detail is appreciated when the guide briefs you how they went about it.
I had an awesome time!! The day I went it was meant to rain and so it turned people off going as it was quiet there... but it was a glorious sunny day!! I did the first trip of the day option and it was perfect and the free included pint of beer/ale/alternative non-alcoholic at the end in the green dragon was a perfect finish. Thank you :
This was a great trip, Hobbit fan or not. Guide Hannah? was very knowledgable and added to the event.
You need to book in advance to ensure you get there, especially if you want to do the evening one where a meal in the Green Draggon is also part of the trip.
Definitely one of the highlights of our trip to New Zealand. The small group was a good way to spend the day. Our guide was knowledgeable and entertaining and an excellent driver. The seats in the vehicle need new padding as our butts were sore from the bouncy splish, splashing thru the waterholes, and thru the river...the scenery was spectacular and beautiful. The opportunity to do the reenactment with Hobbit capes and hold swords on location added to the fantasy. Definitely appreciated the skill of our driver, Jenn- especially up the crazy road to Skippers Canyon. Lunch restaurant was ok. We were extra lucky because three of our group only took half day
One of the highlights of our holiday.

Had been in 2013, was great and exciting then, this time back with 2 of my adult Children, same wonderful atmosphere, thoroughly enjoyed experience as family big LOR fans.
Amazing movie set. We loved this tour and the beer inside a Hobbit pub at the end of the tour. Tons of information about the filming and building of the set. Don't miss this tour on your visit to New Zealand.
