It was amazing! Everything was beatiful! The only negative thing is that they say you can enter in one of the houses, but its not really the inside of a house as you thing. Its just a small dig up they made so you can take a picture on the inside of a window, to pretend you are inside of a house. AMazing as it is, they shouldnt say you can enter a house or they should build the interior of one and say you can enter.

This tour is well worth the full day adventure. You will enjoy the journey outside of Auckland to see all the lush green landscape. Hobbiton is beautiful and magical. Rotorua is beautiful and insightful.

It was an amazing trip to the Hobbiton movie sets and we enjoyed every bit of it. Thr rotorua trip was good but felt like we could see more. It was too short and not worth the money. The coach drivers were very kind and good. Will definetly recommend the Hobbiton tour.

Long Day bus rides 8 hours. Rained all day but Hobbiton was great-Green Dragon Inn with fire to dry out.
Geysers were worth the visi. Overall well organized and value for money

Makes a great day tour combination from Auckland. The tour company provides transport from Auckland and ticket purchase, the tours are then provided by on site guides at Hobbiton and Rotorua who were great Stunned at how magnificently maintained Hobbiton is and the efficient way they ran tours and the Maori guide at Rotorua was terrific as was our Hangi lunch. Tour company Bus driver was not great - she could well do to keep her opinions of immigrants, Asians and her negative comments about staff at the sites to herself. This was a real turn off for me.

This was a great trip that I recommend.
Guide on Hobbiton was super. We got a lot of information about how movies were made, and lots of behind the scene information. Exciting.
The Hobbiton is made with incredible lot of detail. Fun to see in reality.
Rotorua is also a fascinating place with geyser and bubbling mud pool.
Boiling water. Interesting to see.
We also got to learn a little more about Maori culture. I come from the other side of the planet and thought it was interesting.
The drivers are also very good to tell about NZ history.
We visited a redwood forest.
