This tour was OUTSTANDING!!! Holly was a wonderful guide and really seems to know her subject matter. My only quibble was that I wished the tour had been longer. I think I missed some really great photo shots but I'm really happy with the ones I did get!!!!
Excellent tour

Our day at Hobbiton was absolutely wonderful. It was easy to find. Our guide was helpful, happy and obliging. The Hobbit holes were a sight to behold! So well looked after. I would highly recommend this tour.

A beautiful tour made more special if you are a fan of the films. I love taking family and friends here and love it every time.
A place to remember

The place is beautiful and I can understand why Peter chose it as the hobbiton. And the effort the crew put in to make the place so real is unbelievable. It is memorable experience for one fan of the movie 😁

Fun times at Hobbiton

This was our second attempt to go to Hobbiton last time NZ had a major storm flooding & strong winds we didn't want to venture. This time the night before stormed again & we thought not again. But April 22nd it turned out to be a mild semi sunny day. We arrived early from Rotorua not sure how long the drive would take, so picked up our tickets, which was a breeze & proceeded upstairs at Shires Rest for breakfast. Delicious! We had the 12pm tour. Tour guide even though she was new (I think her 2nd week) was bright & cherry. Spoke clearly & didn't rush us. Hobbiton is AMAZING! Stunning views, cute little houses. I could have spent more than the allocated 2 hours there. Our party of 6 enjoyed every moment of it. I highly recommend this Tour & purchasing with Viator
