A perfect birthday gift for my husband; a die-hard Tolkien fan. The detail of the set is remarkable. Children would be wholly convinced the hobbits are indoors hiding from visitors. Even the lettuces were ready to pick. A long day from Auckland but worth it.
Excellent from start to finish. Bus driver and tour guide both great. Green Dragon was very cool and the food in the tent was
remarkably good. I was expecting a sandwich, but it was a gigantic buffet.
This is a must do if you are a fan of the movie. The driver and tour guide are great. Highly recommended!
It was incredible! I did it with my 7-month old son and all the staff were very helpful all the time. The driver was on time, very friendly and very knowledgeable. It was a magical day, worth every penny.
This tour was more than I had hoped for. I loved it. Our bus tour guide was awesome I learned so much I surprised myself. The Hobbiton tour guide was friendly, informative and funny. Awesome
Excellent job. Geoff, our driver picked us up at our hotel on time. He was pleasant and provided interesting information and was accommodating for us. The actual tour was great. Our guide had a natural enthusiasm for the movies which was also expressed in his part of the tour. I would definitely recommend this tour for someone wanting an easy Hobbit experience.
This is an excellent tour and combines not only a fascinating insight into the making of the Hobbit, but also a good dose of beautiful New Zealand countryside. I real highlight of our trip to New Zealand.
The bus was on time despite the Auckland rush hour traffic - a good start. The tour was brilliant, the young lady guide was knowledgeable, enthusiastic and brought the place to life. The after tour ale and dinner were most welcome and enjoyable. A thoroughly good day out.
Excellent tour and very well organised. Geoff was a superb guide and gave us valuable information on the drive to Hobbiton - he really knew his stuff! The stops enroute were just long enough to get takeaway coffee and pastries - perfect. Everything was so well planned out at Hobbiton and in both directions of travel. Highly recommended.
my tour leader Alex is really good. He is very enthusiastic and knowledgeable.
Hobbiton is a wonderful place, I will come back someday.
AMAZING, great to do in a small group with engaged guide and being early on set. Highly recommend this tour.
Thoroughly enjoyed the tour and our guide was very knowledgeable and funny too.
This is really a good tour to go on, driver is professional and entertaining and well organized.
The tour, driver, and guides were all wonderful. It's a must see while visiting Auckland. The drive was very nice and a chance to see the countryside.
We found this tour excellent. Our tour guide was very good and knowledgeable not only on Hobbiton but on the areas we were going through.
Our bus driver Alexander was very friendly and knowledgeable! Our tour guide Emma was also amazing giving us all the details and stories. I would definitely recommend is tour!
Great from start to finish. Nice bus for transportation, plenty of time to visit the set and take pictures. We enjoyed the shop, and had a very nice included lunch buffet and drink. My husband is the Hobbit fan, but after seeing the set, I am now a fan. We are going to watch the DVD again.
A wonderful tour. We had such knowledgeable guides. The meal was perfect.
A fantastic way to do a day trip out to Hobbiton. And Hobbiton itself is totally worth it! I would love to visit again to do the evening tour and to grab some more of their special brew.
This was a fabulous experience! The best day ever! Our driver was very friendly and the tour was informative. Food was delicious and the fact we got our own tour guide for Hobbiton was amazing! I would go again in an instant! PS. Don't forget to use your voucher in the gift shop!
We enjoyed our day with Alexander..good driver...super movie set with excellent local tour guide Leah!
Loved it! Would love to go again!!!
Some parts did feel a bit rushed.
The pathway can be slippery when wet.
The food was superb!
