Amazing experience. Our tour guide Damian from Bush and beach company was so entertaining and kept it so interesting throughout the bus ride
Great Tour from start to finish. Well worth it for all Lord of the Ring/Hobbit fans. Tour guide excellent.
The Set was awesome. Our shuttle tour guide was amazing. He gave us all sorts of insights about NZ on the way down and back. The shuttle was clean and comfortable. Would definitely recommend this tour.
This was an awesome experience. I have never watched either of the movies but enjoyed hearing about the history making the movies here. It's a beautifully place. The tour guide, Lars, was very knowledgeable. We did the tour that included lunch and it was very nice buffet. Loved my drink from the Dragon Inn.
We really enjoyed this trip! Great to get door to door service from our friendly and helpful guide, and we appreciated the included lunch after walking all around the wonderful Hobbiton movie set. Thank you, we would definitely recommend this activity.
This was an amazing tour! We were picked up promptly at our hotel by the van driver Michelle. We made a few more stops to pick up people before heading out to Hobbiton. Michelle gave us a running commentary about local history. We stoped about an hour out for coffee, snacks and the loo. Arriving at Shires Rest we had time to shop before our tour started and we’re given a $10 voucher to spend each. We boarded a comfortable large tour bus to take us to the movie set surrounded by a working farm of grassy hillsides with roaming sheep and lambs. We walked the entire set with a tour guide and learned tidbits about the shoot and saw all the hobbit homes including Bilbo’s, ending at The Green Dragon for an ale. After, we were escorted to a large tent for a buffet lunch. Nice lunch, good food! We boarded the van to head back with another stop for coffee and loo on the way. I would highly recommend Bush and Beach to take you to Hobbiton, we had a great day with good people.
What an amazing experience. A must do for anyone travelling to New Zealand. Another bucket list item ticked off the list.
Had an amazing day. Our tour guide (Wayne) was very knowledgeable and made the bus ride fun and great for a laugh. The hobbit huts were better than I expected
Had an amazing day, even the drizzle didn't ruin our tour. Murray and Ben were wonderful hosts, and the young lady who took us on the tour of Hobbitin Movie Set had a lovely bubbly personality. Only reason I didn't give 5 stars was due to the lunch. Both my husband and I were disappointed. We have been on many tours and feel lunch could have been better.
The trip down to Hobbiton was an experience in itself. From the bustling metropolis of Central Auckland, you travel south and through glorious green countryside. New Zealand is truly a spectacular country. With Wayne as a tour guide, you will be given the treasure of local knowledge, delivered with humour. Hobbiton itself was absolutely delightful, and I would recommend anyone go and see the sights. All in all, I would give the entire experience a thousand stars, but alas, I can only provide 5.
