A visit to the Hobbiton Movie Set is a must, whether you're a LOTR fan or not. On this tour you'll arrive on set early to avoid the crowds, walk around the set as part of a small group, and access areas that are normally off-limits to other tour groups.
The best thing we did is that we went early morning before the crowd. We had to wake up really early but it was worth it. The place is amazing we took all our time with a small group you can take all the pictures you want. After we had the most delicious breakfast and drinks. This was the highlight of our trip to NZ.

This is the only way to see the Hobbiton movie set. Our guide Tony was very informative, friendly, and helpful. Being able to access the movie set before it is flooded with tourists taking in the beauty being untouched for the day not to mention having people in your pictures. Access to Hobbit holes not on the normal tour and breakfast in the Green Dragon Inn was an added bonus. Highly recommend this tour to anyone serious about a quality experience.
This is worth every penny. Our small group was the first to enter the Hobbiton movie set and remained in front of the pack of tourists behind us. Plenty of time was allowed for pictures and the tour guide was informative and happy to help with pictures. Very good quality breakfast at the Green Dragon and bonus facts about New Zealand from our driver. Would've liked a little more time at the Green Dragon instead of a stop on the way back to Auckland for ice cream.
The tour was super ! Every thing exceeded expectations.....
I really enjoyed it. Our guide, Wayne, was a character, but very informed not just about the set, but about the countryside and farming practices we saw along the way. The set itself is charming and more extensive than I expected. Standing there looking at the beautiful surrounding countryside, with not a phone wire or highway in sight, you really feel like you could be in the Shire.
This is the only way to see Hobbiton! Our driver was friendly and personable. Once we arrived at the movie set our tour guide there was excellent. Early Access means plenty of time to stop and take photos. We didn and #39;t feel rushed and the breakfast was excellent.
This tour was evenmore enjoyable than I thought it would be.Our driver Alexander was extremely knowledgeable about New Zealand as well as the Tour itself. Jordan was our guide and she was excellent. I was blessed in that we had only 6 people total on our tour and all of them were friendly and well versed in the movies. This made the tour so enjoyable. The weather held off the rain until we were all finished the tour and at the green dragon having our elevenzees meal. The food was great and we had plently to each plus a drink: choice of one of two beers, or cider or soft drink. I don't know what the tour is like in the summer but the day I went was so enjoyable. I would recommend this tour for anyone who loves the Hobbit movies or Lord of the rings. money well spent.
This trip was excellent! We were glad we did the early entry as the tour was was very personal! The driver was terrific and our tour guide was really informative!
Fabulous tour taken and brilliant driver and tour guide. I had an amazing experience taking this tour.
