    We are an elderly couple from USA. Our guide was fun and knowledgable and was very helpful to group members. We enjoyed the trip through the beautiful countryside. The Hobbiton set was delightful, the gift shop and facilities were very good and had delicious snacks. The tour was a highlight of our visit to New Zealand.

    Great experience! Easy to take the van down to Hobbiton and our guide/driver was attentive and awesome. Highly recommended!

    Took the Hobbiton only tour from Auckland. Mike was a fantastic driver and tour guide. I haven't seen any of the movies or read the books but I still had a great time. There was some construction going on at the movie set but it didn't take away from the experience. Anyone coming should try the delicious food at the Shire and Green Dragon Inn.

    Our guide Mike was an amazing host. The drive out to Hobbiton was smooth and he provided us lots of interesting information about the region along the way. My wife was the big Lord of the Rings fans and this trip was for her, but I’m glad I made the trip too as I enjoyed the beautiful country side and found the movie set experience to be surprisingly fun, whimsical, and worth the trip. If your trip includes a stop for ice cream on the way back, trust Mike’s recommendation of the Hokey Pokey flavor.

    This is the best tour experience I’ve ever had. Michael was phenomenal from beginning to end of our tour. He was so welcoming, friendly, funny, and informative during our tour. On the drive there and back, he allowed space for us to enjoy the views and take it all in. Everything was perfect the whole time. I will do this tour again every year!!! I’d give it 10 stars if I could!

    Must go in Auckland! I needed to change the date cause the weather was not good, and Nicolle did very attended and Michael are the best and makes everything turns special! He is a great photographer too! Hobbiton is unforgettable! Highly recommend this tour!

    We had a wonderful day out with our man Mike! He took us there, had a pit stop along the way for sunrise. The tour was what I had expected, we got to experience the movie set where The Shire was built on. The tour concluded with a drink of your choice (ale/ stout/ ginger beer) at the Dragon’s Inn. Mike ensured we were comfortable all along the way, and even took some snazzy shots for me. Thank you Auckland Scenic Tour - I’m glad I’ve done the booking with you!

    My trip to Hobbiton Movie Set was an incredible experience thanks to Michael, our driver for the day! Our small group consisted with a group of 5, a duo and a solo, me, but we were introduced to each other by Michael's natural icebreakers questions, about LOTR/Hobbit. He was very diligent on the roads and shared a lot of information of our surroundings and the Hobbiton Movie Set on our way to the set. He also answered to every enquiries asked along the way. On the set itself, he helped us collect our tour tickets and helped us take photo at the starting point and end point of the tour where he met us and collected us to bring us back to Auckland. Michael also made pitstops during the drive through and from the movie set, for ice cream/ to stretch our legs.

    Well organized trip and friendly driver who had a couple additional tips and bits of knowledge I enjoyed hearing. Adding a couple stops of interest to break up the drive would be great.

    This was so worth doing and Mike our guide/driver was amazing. He was worried because our family group of 7 were born and bred kiwis, his commentary would be boring to us but it so wasn't. We all learnt things we never knew!I would so do this trip again!
