    Tips? Try to take a photo on all hobbit holes coz it's a very good experience and you don' want to miss any part of the whole hobbiton movie set. This is 2nd time here and i just love to come over and over again😜

    Everything about this tour was easy. From the pick up, transportation, tour of Hobbiton, and drop off. This is a no hassle way of seeing the movie set and I would recommend it. Tanya our driver and guide was very knowledgeable about the whole Auckland region and was a great photographer!

    Perfect day out of Auckland - great tour guide made the journey getting there and back a lovely trip. Well worth it to see the movie setting.

    The trip to the shire to and from Auckland with Warren Peat was amazing! He was very accommodating, friendly and very knowledgeable. The hobbiton tour is very entertaining and fine for kids (my daughter's 5yo) and pregnant women (im currently at 22weeks. But of course always ask your doctor). Even if you havent watched the LOTR or Hobbit movies you will appreciate the trip (would most probably give you that inspiration to start watching the movies). Just want to emphasize again, lucky you if you get Warren as your driver and guide.

    The hobbiton movie set tour was fantastic! It gives you a glimpse of how scenes from the shire were shot. The movie set was kid-friendly, and would recommend surely to those who have seen the movie! Likewise, Warren (our guide) was nothing short of awesome through the whole trip!

    Great morning out especially for fans of LOTR and the Hobbit. My wife also enjoyed the trip even though she has never seen any of the movies. The set is superb and well worth a visit. Actual trip was more like a taxi service as they take you to the set, get your tickets and then drive you back home after your visit. The actual visit is via a set coach and set guide so you could self drive and do the same trip if you wish.
