I must confess before the tour I knew very little about LOTR nor was it of much interest - mainly doing his tour for my husband. Burt what a fabulous day it was! The scenery is simple breathtaking and the tour at Hobbiton is very well organized. The girl who took us around was so enthusiastic and told us many great stories. The free glass of ginger beer or stout if preferred was really nice and the pub had a great rustic atmosphere. We were very fortunate with our driver Les who as luck would have it worked on the movie set as a medic so he shared many fantastic stories along our drive. THe surrounding countryside is so beautiful. An unexpected quick stop to look at a kiwi farm on the way back was a nice surprise too. Was a wonderful day and well worth the price.

Do not hesitate to book this excursion. It will save you heaps of money compared to cruise ship prices and the tour driver we had Doug was full of knowledge and was passionate about his work. Highly recommend.

This tour was excellent. The guides were extremely well informed and the time available to interact with the displays on the movie set was wonderful. Such a beautiful setting. It's so easy to see why it was selected. The level of detail was amazing that it was hard to pick any of the artificial vs the authentic. Would recommend this as a must do tour.

Unfortunately we missed this tour as our ship was delayed in Dunedin, very sad as it was the tour we most wanted to do!
