Wonderful place to visit, could happily have stayed longer than the 2 hour tour and our tour driver Andre from Cheeky kiwi tours was spot on

Hobbiton- flew to Auckland, New Zealand to visit Hobbiton, where the movie sets were built on Mr. Alexander’s farm. There are about forty hobbit holes spread over a hillside. Some are 60% size, some full size and some oversized to get the correct perspective for the different sizes of character. They are each individually styled and decorated to suggest the hobbit who would reside within. There are full on vegetable gardens and riots of flowers and decorative shrubbery. The guide offers interesting tidbits and background information and at the end we were treated with a nice cup of ginger beer. Since our group wasn’t in a hurry, we also at lunch which consisted of beef and ale pies. My only caveat and the reason for only 4 stars is much of the tour is uphill, with one particularly steep section, so the tour would be difficult for mobility impaired or persons with heart or breathing problems.
Loving Hobbiton

This tour was fabulous. After being picked up at our hotel by our excellent driver Lance, we made the trek to Hobbiton, where we were the first group to tour, which was great. Our tour guide Josh was excellent; he had a lot of movie background to impart to us. It is must for any LOTR fan, capped off by a pint at the Green Dragon.
Hobbiton Movie Set Tour

We were the first tour of the day so we had the village to ourselves for the first 10-15 minutes which was great, because there was no one ahead of us and so I would recommend going early. Loved the drink at the Green Dragon Pub but would have liked to have been able to stay there for lunch or spend more time, as it is the last stop at the end of the tour. Our driver was extremely friendly and knowledgeable and made for a great trip from Auckland so would definitely recommend the tour to others.

Perfect from start to end. Early pickup at the hotel in a comfy mini van. Arrived in perfect time for us to have breakfast outside Hobbiton and be first in line when the tour started. Hobbiton itself was awesome! Much better then I imagined. I would suggest go in the first tour of the day. That way you won’t have to many tourists in your pictures :)
Highly recommended!

Our driver (Jack) was excellent. We got to learn more about New Zealand on our drive. The only critique I have is I wish I new how large the groups were that went around Hobbiton. But that’s not a negative on Viator as it’s only their job to provide the ride down to Hobbiton and set up the ticket to get onto the tour. Wasn’t aware of that but the service provided by Viator was all excellent. I wish I had booked to go twice while I was in Auckland as it felt like it went by so quickly!!
Hobbiton Itself was Amazing!
, May 2019
Overall, this was a good tour. Our shuttle picked us up from our hotel which was wonderful. I was expecting a different sort of "shuttle" as it was quite cramped and the seats were uncomfortable for a 2.5 hr road trip. It also would have been nice to have one of the movies played as advertised in order to pass the time. Hobbiton itself was pretty cool, plenty of hobbit holes with an amazing amount of details. The only suggestion for improvement would be to allow for more time at the end in the Green Dragon. We all felt rushed there and did not get to enjoy our drink and snack....if that wasn't rushed, we definitely would've enjoyed the sites and bought more stuff.

Great all day tour. Our tour guide/driver was the best. He taught us a lot about New Zealand and it’s people. Gave us tips on where to sit on the bus that goes into Hobbiton to get the best pictures.

Great pick up service at 0ur hotel. Guide was great and the organization at Hobbiton was amazing.The tour was a bit too quick though and everyone was always trying to catch up the Hobbiton guide.Still, glad we went--it was adorble.
Outstanding Tour

The Hobbiton movie set tour was outstanding, the tour guide was very knowledgeable and accommodating and the site is unbelievable. The only disappointment is no interior hobbit hole sets to see but overall a great experience. Highly recommended.
