Great day trip to Hobbiton with Cheeky Kiwi Travel

One of my bucket list items for my recent visit to New Zealand was to visit Hobbiton. I checked online for tickets and found a lot of tours. My daughter lives in New Zealand and spoke to people who had booked a tour, so I chose a tour company with a special price for exactly what we wanted to do - just get us there and back with a great tour guide and no other side trips. We booked online through Bookme.co.nz and we were not disappointed. The reservation was easy and quick, our van picked us up at the designated place and time, our driver and tour guide was friendly, professional and entertaining, and we had a great trip. I would not hesitate to book another tour using bookme.co.nz or Cheeky Kiwi Travel. I give both five stars!

Amazing!

It was truly magical. Grant, our driver, was very nice and shared a lot of info about New Zealand and Hobbiton. He also helped me to take some photos. Our movie set guide Josh was very nice as well and also took a photo of me as well as other lovely people taking the tour with me. Overall it was an amazing tour and I would recommend it to everyone. The entire movie set has such lovely atmosphere and the hobbit holes (houses) are so adorable and beautifully done. I would just appreciate to have more time to just wander around because I take very long to take photos and videos and I was at the end of our group most of the time and probably missed some info Josh was sharing. But I understand that there are a lot of people coming to this place so we can’t really spend half of the day there. Josh never rushed us so it was up to us to catch up with the group or stay behind a few times to take amazing shots and admire the houses a little bit longer.

A Journey To HoBBiTon

Great Experience.. it’s already a journey before the hobbiton journey even started in Alexandrea Farm.. We were really entertained with the stories from Andre in almost all the landmarks along the way.. thumbs up to Andre and we will definitely try to find him again whenever we’re back in Auckland
