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 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.

My brother and I really enjoyed this tour. It's worth every penny, especially if you're a huge LOTR fan. Our guide going to and from Hobbiton, Alexander, was very friendly and knowledgeable. We learned a lot, not just about Hobbiton about New Zealand in general. He even recommended places for us to visit when he learned we were going to other parts of NZ.
I've forgotten the name of our guide in Hobbiton itself, but she was very accomodating. Some of the tidbits you learn during the tour is mindblowing. You'll learn how much of a mad genius Peter Jackson is. The place itself is beautiful. I particularly liked the small details included in each of the Hobbit houses.
By the way, make room for lunch because it is fantastic.
the best of the best tour offered by Viator New Zealand...
A really great tour! Although expensive, it was worth it! Dawn, our driver from Bush and Beach, was very warm. And our guide at Hobbiton, Leah, was the best! She made sure our family had enough time to take pictures at each hobbit hole - she would tell the group before us to move on to give us time to have each house all to our own. And, the meal served at Green Dragon was sumptuous!!!
