We had a great day our tour guide was great and very informative of the area. Thanks
We had a fantastic time exploring the set with our very knowledgeable tour guide and really enjoyed our bus driver who threw in a beautiful surprise on the way home!
We had a wonderful day trip with Stephen. The LOTR site is amazing and the other places he took us to were excellent. Stephen has a great knowledge of the area and told us many interesting things about Tauranga. Highly recommend this tour
I had a great time. It was absolutely beautiful. One of my favorite things I did in New Zealand. Our guide was informative and helpful.
Even though we knew that this was going to be a a touristy tour, the landscape, setting and flowers made the trip worth it. It was a very crowded area, but our guide kept things moving and we could hear her clearly.
Directions to bus from cruise ship easy.Bus driver willing to go out of her way to show us little extras
A well organised tour , loved it !!
Great tour with very informative guides, it was a great relaxed tour that was great value for money, our guide for Hobbiton Megan was lovely, very friendly and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend this tour. Thanks for a great day
Tour driver very informative and considerate of all on board. Picturesque drive to Hobbiton. Hobbiton met all our expectations. I suggest if you want to look around the port do so before this tour
An amazing tour from start to finish. Never watched the movies but now feel inclined to do so. The journey back from Hobitton was the icing on the cake. Great small group tour
This was a great tour of the Hobbiton area with a smaller group and guide with a lot of information of the site and the filming at the site.
Fantastic experience. Shona our guide and driver was lovely and knowledgeable, and AJ our guide at Hobbiton was great and offered lots of interesting information and stories. The set is located in amazing countryside and is a great experience for fans.
This was amazing, so much better than I expected it to be. Our small group travelled with Robin and he was a very good tour guide. He explained so much for us and answered varied questions. We loved the drive to the Hobbiton farm, and just loved all we saw. Lunch was yummy as well. A highlight of our NZ trip. The little Hobbit homes were beautiful, flowers everywhere, just loved it and so many more than I thought we would see.
This tour was amazing. The grounds are beautiful and very well maintained. The guide was great and informative. The tour included a fantastic lunch and a free beer as well.
We loved every minute of this tour! Our guide was so wonderful, and there were only 4 of us on the bus to the movie set which made it so personal. It took an hour to get there, and the tour at Hobbiton was 2 hours. What an amazing place! After that, our guide took us to a nature park where we walked to a waterfall. Since we were on a cruise, this was the only time we got to see the interior of New Zealand, so we were excited about that. This was by far our favorite tour in New Zealand!!
This was a wonderful tour, especially Mike Sowter from Zealandier Tours who met me at my ship and took me to Hobbiton. His commentary was most helpful and he provided a tasty lunch at the end. The actual Hobbiton Movie Set Tour was excellent, just seeing the Hobbit Houses built in to the sides of the hills was great, and ending up in the Green Dragon Pub for a free drink was also good. A great day was had by all.
Absolutely fantastic ...!!!
The tour guide a local was exceptionally informative in his commentary from the port to Matamata and back.
The tour of the movie set was also equally informative and interesting.
Well worth the visit and I highly recommend the tour company. Lunch at the movie set was included.
Excellent Excursion Mike our Tour Guide was Wonderful. Hobbiton is well worth placing on your things to do. Viator you chose the right tour company.
Great time! I work on a cruise ship and they were so accommodating when our itinerary changed and on getting us back to the ship on time. Hobbiton was amazing a dream come true, our guide was funny and knowledgeable. In the tour description here it talks about going to a waterfall as part of the package, that was not apart of our experience, the tour was just to Hobbiton and back.
We were traveling with our 11 year old grandson and this trip was his choice. He was charmed, as were we. The van arrived on time to pick us up from the cruise dock, and it was great to have only 12 people instead of a regular bus-full, made it much easier to hear the guide and ask questions. It is quite an impressive site, and even though neither my husband nor I had seen the movies, we still very much enjoyed it. The guide was fun and knowledgeable and spoke about how they filmed special effects. Amazing that they made a tree, including re-painting the thousands of silk leaves on it! The bus ride there was through pretty countryside --- what's not to love about New Zealand?! The only reason I didn't rate this a 5 is because it was less meaningful to us since we had not seen the movies.
Great tour . Hobbiton is very bust always , so the tour felt rushed . You cant just walk around at your leisure , you have to go in groups and keep up with them . But I loved it and recommend it .
