This trip was AMAZING!!! My husband and I went on this tour on the 4th October 2016. The guide for the trip down from Auckland was great and provided us with many interesting facts about the Auckland area and the Maroi culture. You also get picked up from your hotel which was very convenient. We only had 13 people on our tour at Hobbiton while most other tours running at the same time had 45 people so we definitely felt like we got a more in depth experience. Would highly recommend to any Lord of the Rings fans.
An absolutely fabulous tour. A very long day but worth it. You won't be disappointed

Fabulous -- Sam, our guide at Hobbiton, had a lot of interesting things to tell us about the movie set. Our driver/guide knew a lot about New Zealand and the areas we traveled through. The weather was gorgeous. Definitely worth experiencing.
Loved this tour! It was well worth the price going and the small group setting helped us not feel rushed through everything.
Highly recommend doing a small group tour. Tour guide was excellent!
Wonderful tour! Our guide was very nice and knowledgeable. The site is amazing and well worth the trip. Definitely highly recommended!
Hobbiton is like fantasy land - so colourful and magical! Both the lady driver and tour guide were informative and pleasant. The tour was well organized and lunch was good - highly recommended!
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.
