Marvelous !!!
Jan 2021
THIS TRIP WAS FANTASTIC !!!

First, we took a two hour walk through the beautiful scenery of "The Shire" and got to see the different Hobbit houses. I even had the chance to take a photo on Bilbo's landing.
Then, the guides crew surprised us by taking us to the mythical "green dragon" tavern. There we even met some actors who played the dwarves in the films !!!
It was MAGIC, a dream come true !
I really loved this exprerience an it made me emotional at some points.
I thought this was a fantastic experience beceause it allowes everybody to see beautiful New-Zealand's landscapes and true fans to put a foot in there favorite saga.
Lastly I Would've recommend to every kind of fan of the Hobbit or The Lord of the Rings films to do the trip to see it with their own eyes.

Must-visit if you´re a fan but maybe overpriced?

Hobbiton Matamata New Zealand

It's a must-visit for LOTR fans and you learn some interesting trivia about the filming done all around but I'm not sure I would do this twice for the price. Very good attention to detail. Easy walk around with stairs and a free drink at the Green Dragon - awesome!

Amazing
The set is absolutely amazing just like in the movie. The guide is very knowledgeable and friendly. Definitely recommend this tour when you’re in New Zealand. Since other set is a bit far and out of the way, I would recommend go early if you want to do both. A must see in NZ. Loved it

Must-visit if you're a fan
Sep 2020
Visited this on a rainy day but they provided everyone with big umbrellas. I felt like the tour was a bit rushed but we still managed to take great photos anyway.

It's a must-visit if you're a fan and you learn some interesting trivia about the filming done here but I'm not sure if I'd do this twice for the price.

Easy walk around with stairs and a free drink at the pub (this part did not feel rushed at least).

Hobbiton Experience

The beauty of this wonderful farm area with hundreds of heathy sheep on the surrounding areas. A lot of twin and a few triplet lambs at this time of the year.
Sir Peter Jackson has done NZ proud by creating this magnificent film set and LOTR trilogy.
I’m not even a J.R. Tolkien fan, but this tour was exceptional. Better than I anticipated.
A MUST SEE.
This Tour makes you so proud to live in NZ and not only see a fabulous movie set, but also admire our wonderful countryside.
The ambience of the whole area and in particular having a drink afterwards in the Green Dragon Pub is so enjoyable. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Amazing tour of Hobbiton
Jul 2021
Whilst I watched all of movies, I was never a fanatic and could only name a couple of characters. However, our party of 4 decided this was something we should do on the South Island.
Fantastic from start to finish. Our guided tour was excellently hosted and could relate the various anecdotes from the filming and respond to the many questions from the tour group.
Exceeded all expectations and would recommend this attraction without hesitation.

Passion and personality in each Hobbit hole
Jul 2021
What a fabulous experience. The attention to detail blew me away. I loved the anecdotes about things that happened during the shooting of the films.
I took lots of photos, but was pleased to have our tour guide on hand to take photos of my partner and I. There was such a lot of thought put into each hobbit hole. I have only seen a couple of the movies, but could relate what I had seen to the set we walked round. The mill and the tavern are amazing additions. I can recommend the cider. The gift shop has a wide variety of items to tempt you with. Shire's Rest café was open before the tour, so we could get breakfast. It was a most enjoyable bucket- list ticking experience.

Wheelchair accommodating.
We had a great time at Hobbiton. They very helpful for wheelchair access. There doesn’t appear to be wc to cafe at the top and the buses aren’t but they allowed us to drive to the set in our private vehicle and then provided a golf cart with guide to go around the site. We took some slightly different routes but effectively had a private guide Teresa who was awesome. We saw pretty much all the areas. Stoped at the green dragon and got out for a ginger beer and a pie. Would happily recommend to other wheelchair users. Transfer into the cart is a little awkward and just be careful re stability. There is a good handle in the roof which helps a lot.
