Great trip - well worth it! When we picked this excursion, it was noted that water and a snack would be provided - we received neither and it was a warm day. It's a bit of a drive to Hobbiton and then with approximately a two hour tour, by the time we got to the Green Dragon, we were very thirsty. Bring water and a snack!
