Only 12 people in our group and we had our own guide. We also arrived early enough to avoid the crowds. And the lunch was pretty tasty too!
Driver Wayne fromBeach and Bush and tour guides at Hobbiton did a great job.
Great tour and food!
This tour was exceptional for several reasons. Even if you are not a fan of the movies, the tour of the movie location is an education into the film making process. The tour guide presented excellent examples of the surprises that occurred during filming and the myriad of technical challenges that had to be overcome. A second reason this tour was exceptional was that Viator subcontracted to a Small New Zealand Business - Bush and Beach that won the Small Business Operator of the year for 2016 from the New Zealand Tourism Export Council. It showed in the quality of the whole tour. Lastly, the bus ride from Auckland was very scenic and made informative by the commentary of our driver/guide Wayne. The tour would not have been as entertaining/informative without his input.
Stephan was an outstanding Tour Guide - managed the group and various moving parts exceptionally well Tour was as expected, a good experience and lots of anecdotal information provided by the site Tour leader. Lunch, outstanding, much more than anticipated. Well recommended.
Superb tour for those like myself who has knowledge of the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit movies. This set truly makes you feel like you could have been a part of the movie!
Our driver was great, he was full of just enough information to keep the drive interesting, and a very nice man that has lived a very interesting life. The guide at Hobbiton was also fantastic, she made the tour so fun and brought our small group from around the world to feel as a tight knit group of friends through her conversation with us. Just a suggestion to others considering doing the tour: bring allergy medicine if you suffer from hayfever. There are a lot of various pollens, and while I havent had to take allergy medicine for years, I was very impacted by and was physically miserable while in such a beautiful place with such nice people.
Keith our driver-guide made the drive very enjoyable with all his knowledge of the country we traveled through very beautiful and the Hobbiton area. Highly recommend this Bush and Beach tour group and this small group tour in particular.
Fantastic driver. Had a good conversation with him.
About the tour itself, drive to the location was beautiful and it was amazing to see how much effort was put in to build the set. Must see if you are movie buff.
They did an awesome job! Lots of information was shared with everyone on the tour. I would highly recommend it
