I am a Lord of the Rings/Hobbit fan, but my wife and kids haven't watched them really. We all enjoyed the day here and the tour is really quite informative. Even the drive up to the set itself through the property is worthwhile. Finished off...More
Been twice so far and happy to go again. Sounds expensive but worth it. Fully guided tour adds to the experience as they take you behind the scenes of movie making tricks, explaining how the many details of the village are created. Well presented, standards...More
We did the Evening Banquet tour and absolutely loved it. The tour group was large but our amazing guides Hayden and Sarah (thanks again for the dad jokes and bad puns) still managed to give us a great tour, with lots of info delivered in...More

We did the walking tour and dinner and it was so much fun. The Hobbiton bus took us through the farm from the parking lot to the entrance of Hobbiton. We had 2 awesome guides that took us all through Hobbiton around sunset and gave...More

We went on the tour of the movie set and had the banquet at the Green Dragon and had a fabulous experience. The guides were brilliant and the food amazing. Highly recommend doing the night tour for a magical experience.
WOW is the first thing i said sad, as you walk into the main are you are transported to not just a different place and time but directly into the movie. Lord of the rings /Hobbit was the first reason for planning our trip to...More
Together with our 9 and 11 year, we enjoyed this tour tremendously. We’d only watched the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Leon, our guide, shared with us some production facts and gave good context to the different settings. Only drawback is that with a larger...More

You take a coach bus from the gift shop/cafe to Hobbiton! We went in late August and our group was 15-20 people. I'm sure that the bus could have held more people, it definitely was not 'tourist season' when we went. I believe tours depart every 30 min, so you don't feel the pressure of another group right on your heels!
