    We had an excellent tour. Our driver made extra stops as well, so that we can get the most of our trip. He was very knowledgeable and made this excursion an unforgettable trip. Thank you so much.

    The tour was as expected and beyond! Amy, our tour guide, was lovely and great in show us around. The tour itself was great if you haven’t seen the country. Hobbiton was beautiful as expected and beyond. A dream coming into reality in my opinion. One there, I met another tour guide named Peter from Auckland and Beyond. He was great too. Overall, Auckland and Beyond has some of the best and friendliest tour guides in New Zealand. Beyond a five star crew for sure.

    Pickup and drive to Hobbiton very good and driver gave a lot of history and good photo stop break. And very attentive to getting us on right tour,etc and meeting after.

    Drive back fine until we got to Auckland--then driver apparently had some issues locating where to drop off fellow passenger and drove right by our hotel near downtown Auckland and then over the Harbor Bridge(away from us) and back 3 times trying to find where to drop the other passenger off ,, and he had his GPS on the whole time...very confusing and time consuming. First time over the bridge was ok to see it even though out of the way.

    A fabulous experience tour guide did her best to provide a full narrative for everyone but with a heavy rain on the tour (umbrellas provided) and everyone under the umbrella you couldn't hear what was being said. So much of the narrative was not heard. But the joyful experience of walking thru the Shire itself was well worth the tour.

    We visited Hobbiton through Aukland Adventures and the driver Martin, was a very pleasant and knowledgeable host. Hobbiton itself was so much fun and so well done. Thoroughly enjoyed our day.

    Chris was great! He was very prompt and had everything well planned. He helped take photos with the few props that the Dragon Inn had available. Finally, he took most of us to a scenic view of the Auckland skyline across the bay for photos. We had a wonderful time. Highly recommend this tour.

    Picked and dropped off from your hotel, a pleasant trip to the set, even stop off for refreshments. Well worth it if you don’t want to drive there
