  • A rainy day in Hobbiton is better than good weather in most places!

  • The cave tour itself was so beautiful. I enjoyed the tour, but just felt very rushed. I didn't have time to walk around the gift shop after the tour because all the buses were trying to get to another location. I wish I had just rented a car and driven here so I could stay longer.

  • A must for LOTR fans! Very fun to see all the different hobbit holes, and to hang out at the Green Dragon. I definitely recommend this.

  • The driver who took us to Hobbiton (Barry) was great and very knowledgeable. And the Hobbiton tour itself was awesome, whether or not you are a diehard fan of the Th Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit trilogies! We highly recommend!

  • Spectacular scenery even if you have not seen the movies.Well informed driver.Light rain did not spoil the great experience.

  • We had a great time on this tour! It definitely takes most of the day. We were picked up at 9:30 and dropped off at 7pm.

    The driv there took about 2 hours with the stops. Our tour was in the afternoon around 1pm. It took around 2 hours and was amazing. The movie site is beautiful! It was cool to be standing in places you've seen in the movies.

  • Great day, really worth the long journey!

  • Great trip, long day though but worth it! Fun tours was exactly that as we had Joseph as our driver and guide and he was great fun and a lovely fellow.

    Everything ran to time.

    Hobbiton excellent and the cold drink at the green dragon inn was perfect to end the visit with as was the hokey pokey ice cream we got on the way home!

  • Bela experiência, um tour lúdico. Pontualidade e cordialidade. Altamente recomendado.

  • It was ok. Lots of hiking but the scenery brought back memories of the movie.
