  • This tour was amazing!

  • Amazing.

  • excellent tour with insightful tour guides

  • This was such a great tour! I traveled to NZ with my fiance who was working, and parted with him just so I could do this tour and it did not disappoint! While I've yet to seen the Hobbit movies, I love all the LOTR and visiting Hobbiton was such a fun experience. I was afraid it would be touristy as I tend to like to do things independently when I travel. There is no other way to see Hobbiton than to go on a guided tour. Your alternative would be to self drive to Matamata, but then you would still have to pay for a guided tour of Hobbiton, and from what I saw they are in very large coach style buses. Our bus had about 15 people and was the perfect size. All of my friends raved at my pictures. It was worth my entire trip to Auckland.

  • The tour is very good. The place is amazing, very well structured and maintained. It is amazing the attention to detail that the production of the films had with the village of the Hobbits. If you are a fan of movies, movies in general, worth the visit.

  • It was nice outing. If you are fun of Road of the Ring, this is the place.

  • This is magical place to visit, even if you aren't a fanatic movie fan! The landscape is stunning and the tour was excellent. We went in the slower season and it was still busy. There was plenty of time to get photos and our guides were very friendly and knowledgeable. There was a short time to grab lunch in Mata Mata before heading to Hobbiton. The ice cream stop on the way home was a bit anti-climatic it is at a gas station. We stopped on the way there a couple of times to break up the drive. Traffic was a bit heavy coming back into Auckland but all in all a great tour.

  • Now one of my favourite places on the planet, must see!

  • The bus broke down on the way, luckily right next to a cafeteria so we could eat lunch early, and didn't lose much time while waiting for a new bus. In spite of being winter and it's been raining almost every day of my stay in Auckland, we were blessed with sunshine in Hobbiton. Couldn't have been a more perfect day. Great bus driver, great guide. This is an excursion I would recommend to any Lord of the Rings and Hobbit-fan. I'm sure it's fun even if you aren't.

  • Better than expected. Great group and guide. Fantastic.
