When in Auckland, you have to see Hobbiton even if you are not a fan of the books. In this day and age, Hobbiton is like a hug for your soul, evoking feelings of something so magical, so pure, and so good that you can't but come away a better person at least for the day. The tour itself was nice, comfortable bus, awesome knowledgeable guide Barry and great itinerary. The one thing to make this tour even better would be to leave Auckland earlier btw. 8 and 9 AM and come back earlier, but other than that, a great tour indeed.

If I can only divide the rating between Kiwi Fun Tour (who brought us from Auckland to Matamata) and The Hobbiton itself; I would give Kiwi Fun Tour a 5 and 1 for Hobbiton. David, our driver, was great and engaging! He gave us information about the places/towns when we passed by. However, the Hobbiton Tour itself was disappointing. I felt that we were rushed and didn't have enough time to explore the Hobbiton on our own. There was time limit per section and the tour guide restricted us to go to the other parts of Hobbiton. Example, once you passed by an area, you're not allowed to go back. To add to my disappointment, our tour guide in Hobbiton was sort of not in the mood and was blurting out inappropriate comments. She said twice that she definitely would need a drink after our tour.

David was a very good guide. Though the weather was not well, he introduced to us a lot about the new zealand and of coz the hobbiton! Thank you David!

Was really nice and definitely worth the trip. Pickup from Auckland was spot on and the drive to Hobbiton smooth, with 2 stops to have a quick breakfast and a nice lunch break before hitting Hobbiton land. The Hobbiton tour was great, I enjoyed seeing the little houses, the gardens and of course the visit to the Green Dragon Inn.

Absolutely amazing! Worth every penny and time. Highly recommend to anyone, not even a Tolkien’s fan.

great fun day out of Auckland with the amazing set of LOTR. Very friendly guides and some stunning views await!

This tour is a must for J.R.R. Tolkien fans and for fans of the Hobbit movies. We were amazed at the measures Peter Jackson took to recreate Tolkien's vivid imaginary world. We were hosted around the movie set in small groups which made it easy to take photos. Considering the large number of visitors to the movie set, the site is very well maintained. We enjoyed a self catered lunch break on the
way down and an icecream on the way back.

Fantastic tour! Great stops to get ice cream and lunch, beautiful scenes on the journey, and the driver was really nice and helpful. Would definitely recommend!

Hobbiton was great to see, however, the group is guided through the tour rather quickly. If you are at the back of a large group then you will not have very much time to take photos as those at the front have used up the allowed time. If you do happen to be in a group of 30 people then try and keep close to the guide.
