After reading the books years ago and seeing the movies I didnt expect Hobbiton to measure up to my expectations.... but I was proven wrong. Hobbiton is outstanding! The gardens make it seem so lived-in and the Green Dragon was so neat. Peter Jackson and the Alexander family have done a wonderful job.
Fantastic day out, bus trip , great driver , good tour guide. All enjoyed it . Apparently not a lot of New Zealanders do the bus trip , come on guys , its great , get in behind it
From a Grandma who hasn't seen The Hobbit or any of the the Lord of The Ring movies this was without a doubt one of the best experiences I have had, my three grandchildren were absolutely blown away by the tour from the Pick up at by our driver Danny alias Tom
He was a wealth of knowledge with lots of great information. He kept us entertained and gave us lots of good tips on our trip. Loved it well worth booking a tour with Viator. THE BEST
Even though it was cold and pouring rain, I would still recommend this tour! Our bus driver was funny and informative, the tour guide at the sight was knowledgeable and very helpful. I was there in September, which explains the poor weather, but with fewer fellow tourists, you get a better view!
This as a bucket list trip that met and exceeded our expectations. What the people running this have done is create a well oiled machine that allows visitors to travel to Middle Earth and experience the Shire. My sincere congratulations to everyone involved in this venture. It was an amazing experience to walk around and appreciate the scale of the undertaking. Pretty decent amunt of time permitted around the Hobbit Holes and in the Green Dragon.
Very entertaining, and seeing where the worldwide famous films actual locations were
Great Tour...., Nice Scenery. Hobbiton Movie Set was very nice and took lots of memorable photos. Recommend to anyone who likes greenery and breathtaking scenery.

Very fun tour, about a hour bus drive from Rotorua. A beautiful setting which makes you want to see the movies again. You get an pale ale or cider in the Green Dragon which is good but they only gave us 15 minutes in the crowded Shire gift shop which was disappointing.
Wow, can't say enough about this tour. Hobbiton set is amazing, guide was great, plenty of time to take photos as we walked around. Bus driver didn't allow us any time to shop for souvenirs at the end of the tour so was VERY FRUSTRATING. We actually had to make an itinerary change to go back on our own. Also, Tucker, our bus driver, was very nice but was falling asleep during the drive back to Rotorua. I had to keep talking to him to keep him alert. He crossed the center line a lot! It was scary.
This tour was great and everything we imagined it to be and more!!!! Loved it! Guide was awesome and fun!
Good combination of guided tour and space to explore on your own. Very knowledgable and entertaining guide as well
Outstanding! I can't fault it. The Hobbiton village is so beautiful. Much larger than I expected and appears fully functional with vegetable gardens, washing on the clothes lines, flowers everywhere, I think there are 39 little houses, a pub and wheelhouse and lakes. I was gobsmacked. It was perfect because we also had fantastic weather.
A great tour, magical location, good guide plus masses of photo opportunities from this beautifully kept and maintained spot. Plus a drink in the Green Dragon at the end. Highly recommended
Very cool tour. I do wish that it was a little slower and that there were less people. We loved it though!
This is an outstanding 1/2 day tourist adventure. Everything is taken care for you and the movie set is kept in pristine condition. Highly recommended and walking around the set is amazing. Great photo opportunities. Excellent value for money.
