If you love LOTR then go on this tour it was a great day from the bus driver to the tour guide a beautiful place and high on information
Great, rereading books and watching LOTR to apply what we learned here and at Weta workshops. Even if you have not read and watched movies, worth a visit.
Really enjoyed this tour. If you love every thing to do with Lord of the Rings, and Hobbitt movies, this is a must see. Also recommend a visit to Weta Cave if you are in Wellington, where all the props etc are made for the movies.
A fantastic tour around the Hobbiton movie set. Beautiful scenery and a lovely pleasant walk around all the hobbit houses. We enjoyed every minute of it!
Absolutely worth the trip! Loved every minute of the tour and the scenery. A Hobbit wonderland!
Great trip. Enjoyed the set tour with the guide (Uncle Ben) who had worked on the set during filming so had a wealth of stories. He was great fun. The variety of souvenirs in the shop is a bit limited.
Great tour particularly for movie fans. Get a special unique drink, only sold in the town. Can not be found anywhere else in the world.
It was a very interesting, fun and exciting tour. The tour guide was very nice and kept entertaining the travellers all the time. Worth going !!!!!
I really enjoyed the tour. Our coach trip driver Carolinr was super, very informative and clearly knew everything about the movie and how it was made. The journey to the movie site was smooth and we arrived in expectation of an exciting tour. I was not disappointed. Jess our site guide was also very knowledgeable about the book and the movie and it was clear we had some avid fans on the tour. I liked being able to walk amongst the hobbit dwellings and the Green Dragon was a real highlight, great fun. I would recommend the tour to anyone interested in the book and or movie,
A wonderful tour. The driver (pickup in central Rotorua) was very friendly with a commentary that made the trip to Hobbiton quite enjoyable. My only complaint about the drive was that the operators should ensure the bus windows are cleaned so that the countryside can be viewed without being blurry. The walking tour around Hobbiton was terrific. We were on the first tour of the morning (which I would recommend) so there were no other groups in front of us getting in the way of photos.
Definitely worth a visit. Everything you looked at you could relate back to the films. Good opportunities for pictures and was great to have a beer in the pub. Was a bit rushed with busloads of tourists almost doubling up. But besides this I would not have missed the opportunity.
