Great experience and tour. I could hear the music from the films playing in my head as I toured Hobbiton, amazed that at the detail and scale of the place. A must for any fan, and probably interesting even if you are not a fan.

What an experience for a Lord of the Rings fan. Even if not a fan I could see it being interesting, just because of the beautiful setting and how well run the tour was. a must if in New Zealand.

The early wake up was annoying, until you get to hobbiton and its almost completely empty around 8am by the time we finished our tour of the set and had a delicious breakfast at the Dragon Inn, there were lines all over the hills. NO REGRETS. all my pictures are random person free. The ice cream on the way home was a tasty treat as well.

Going on the early trip it was every thing we expected, well worth the extra. The breakfast in the Green Dragon was awesome.

Fabulous tour. By arriving before the regular tours began, our small group had private access to the entire Hobbiton which provided us with unobstructed views and excellent photos. We also had a delicious private breakfast in the Green Dragon. Though I initially thought that this tour was expensive, it turned out to be worth every dollar. Our coach driver David who drove us from our Auckland hotel was extremely pleasant and our Hobbiton tour guide Hugh was very accomendating in taking whatever photos we requested. My wife and I highly recommend this tour!!

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.

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.

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.

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!!!

We had a great day at the Hobbiton Movie Set we were the first on the set and didn't have to fight crowds. We had a fantastic guide who knew everything about Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit and the move sets at the Hobbitation. We had the best food at our brunch at the Green Dragoon. It was a great experience!

It may considered a bit 'pricey', but for the experience you have, it isn't. Picked up from our hotel in Auckland at 6am by our driver for the day, Tony. Whose enthusiasm for this tour is obvious. Nine of us went on this tour and everyone raved about it. We even had the opportunity of going into Bag End for a photo looking out. Lunch in the Green Dragon in our own area was great, and then some Tip Top ice cream on the way back. If your a Lord Of the Rings fan this is well worth it.

This was an excellent trip. The early tour of Hobbiton before the crowds was great and we got to see
some areas that the general tour does not. Also, the breakfast was wonderful, and such a great setting -
the Green Dragon's Inn. Our driver was very helpful and made the trip unrushed and even more enjoyable. I would definitely do this again.

Absolutely worth the early morning start! The experience was amazing and being able to go through with such a small group gave us plenty of time for all the photos we wanted. Breakfast at the Green Dragon too!

I am so happy we paid extra to do this tour. It is worth it! Dawn our driver and Keiron our guide were amazing, I cannot say enough good things about them. The group is a small private tour with breakfast at the end. Food was great, I have never laughed so much on tour before!! Given you are the first group to arrive at the set you get loads of time to take photos and great shots too as there are no crowds blocking your shots. So glad I did this!
