Docked from our cruise and found the rep right where they said they would be. They also had a board with tours and booked passengers names. We booked ahead but some bought that morning. Was a medium sized van with ten of us. This was the highlight of our cruise through all of New Zealand! The driver made sure not to lose us in the crowded gift shop area. We picked up our guide and walked through the site. Then we went to the green dragon for a drink. It was like being in the movie! Exacting details and perfect in every way. The driver stopped at several scenic overlooks and even dropped us in the shopping area instead of the dock a few blocks away.

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.
