    Everything about this tour was well done. The bus ride there with a lot of information and videos onboard made the trip there pass quickly. Our guide for the tour of Hobbiton was entertaining and had so many fun background stories to tell us and seeing the well maintained settings for the movie was impressive. The ginger beer at the end of the tour was a nice treat too.

    We had a fabulous morning at Hobbiton. It really felt like stepping into another world. We were constantly expecting a hobbit to pop out of one if the hobbit holes. Our guide Danilo was informative and enthusiastic and really made the films come to life. Only 4 stars as the group was too large and we could have done with a little more time so as not to be so rushed. An extra 1/2 hour to an hour would have been perfect.

    Great day with a great host. Our bus driver was also very nice. For a LOTR fan this was a must on my trip. The beer in the Green Dragon was also very tasty!

    The tour is about an hour through rolling hills and the bus plays a few short videos along the way. Our guide was Jordan and she was very easy to listen to. The tour is relaxed with lots of good photo ops. The gardens are truly amazing! After the tour we enjoyed a complimentary drink at the Green Dragon.

    I give this 5 stars because it was so magnificent!! The ride over to Hobbiton was so amazingly beautiful and the movie set was breathtaking!! Everyone should experience this when visiting New Zealand for sure!

    Must do for any fan of the Lord of the Rings/Hobbit movies. Tour guide was super knowledgeable and nice!

    I only saw Lord of the Rings part 1 so I’m nit really a fan and don’t know much about it. This was a good experience...but for the price, for me it’s pricey...

    Even though I have not seen the movies I greatly enjoyed this tour. The sheer magnitude of the set blew me away. I think I will try to see at least one of the movies when I go home. Well done

    I absolutely loved this tour. Pickup from Rotorua was easy and the trip over went quickly with fun videos about Hobbiton and the films. Our driver was also telling us along the way sights we were seeing. The actual tour was so fun and a perfect day for it! My only negative was I wish I could have stayed longer!
