Beautiful Hobbiton day

It was a beautiful day weather wise . Transportation to and from Auckland was great. (*Have cash for coffee at halfway point). We were on time so into the Hobbiton bus with guide straight away and a very knowledgeable guide he was taking us around pointing out all the filming scenes and props. Very interesting and informative 🙂. The food and drinks at The Gray Dragon Inn were excellent *the Rye ploughman sandwich was very tasty and the Gingerbeer delicious! A wonderful day out.

Great day out!

Absolutely loved this tour! Really lovely tour guide Peter drove us from Auckland to Hobbiton... shame he wasn’t the driver for my return journey! Fantastic day at Hobbiton, well worth it whether you’ve seen the movies or not. Would highly recommend to anyone.

Amazing Trip with Fantastic Driver / Guide

We could not fault this trip from start to finish - it was amazing, despite having a 6am pick up and being jet lagged. Our driver Paul was excellent, he was so informative and friendly and went out of his way to ensure that we all knew the process once we arrived at Hobbiton. I cannot recommend this trip enough - it was definitely good value for money.

Even old blokes love it !

What a great family day, truly a great day. I am 55 and thought I was not right into it. Went with my family for a day out in the country but I was totally converted. The whole package was a great day. From mini bus to finish. Our Hobbiton guide at the shire made the day. He was funny and passionate and new everything. I shook his hand at the dragons pub enjoying a special brew to tell him so.
