Excellent small group tour

The trip to Hobbiton and back again was great with our guide and driver Paul. It was a group of 8 of us and more enjoyable than the rushed big coach tour I did the day after. The friendly atmosphere made it much easier to chat with the other passengers. I signed up for the tour by myself. I got some useful tips on places I will visit later from the others on this trip.

Great Hobbiton Experience

Amazing and a must visit place in Auckland where Lord of the Rings was filmed. It's interesting to know how fake trees were created and looked like real ones. Thanks to Mai and Ali from Auckland and Beyond Tours who brought us to this movie set with a lot of informative stories to tell about Auckland. The tour was well organized and they respond quickly to my queries regarding pickup location. Ali also took us a lot of pictures and shared his personal stories during the walk. Cookies, Chips and bottled water were provided during the entire tour.

Worth it

We did the Hobbiton tours with Kelly and she was awesome. We were picked up from our CBD location on time. The shuttle was clean and plenty of leg room. Chips and water was also offered during the travel. Everything went very smoothly from pick to the movie set tour and return to Auckland. Great experience overall!!

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.

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.
