          Two unique experiences in one day
          Great way to see two excellent attractions in one day. Mike, our driver and guide, was attentive and fun. Local guides at the cave and Hobbiton were also excellent. It is a a really early start in the morning and the drive can be challenging for those sensitive to motion sickness. The bus was comfortable though and the meals along the way are tasty.

          Stunning and memorable
          If you've got a day in Auckland, or already planning on going to Hobbiton, this is the best experience you can get! This entire experience was magical. Not only does the van come to your hotel within a radius, they take the scenic route instead of the quickest. They plan an amazing stop on the way to Hobbiton for stunning views of the countryside. We were given ample time before the tour to look around the gift shop and grab food. Once we got through Hobbiton, we went for our INCLUDED lunch before the Waitomo caves. There were plenty of options and nothing felt rushed! Also, Mike was the absolute best tour driver. He was punctual, communicative, and informed! He handled all of the ticketing for us. He checked in with me since I was solo on the trip to make sure I was having a good time. He even offered to take pictures! The best part is I got to ride in the passenger seat and take in the entire experience.

          Actually lived up to its hype!!
          We recently took the Hobbiton tour, and it was magical! The New Zealand countryside’s beauty and the meticulously recreated hobbit holes made us feel like we stepped into Middle-Earth. Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly, sharing fascinating behind-the-scenes stories. This tour is perfect for all ages, with whimsical houses and rich storytelling. We highly recommend it to anyone visiting New Zealand – a truly unforgettable journey!

          I am so glad I went on this tour while in Auckland. Seeing both the Hobbiton and Glow Worm Caves was an amazing, amazing experience. I also really appreciated the scenic country views of New Zealand as we drove to our destinations. Mike was my tour guide and he was an incredible professional—I was very impressed that he remembered all of our names right off the bat! I really appreciated all the thought that went into this tour. I thoroughly recommend everyone visiting New Zealand to take part in this experience!

          An absolute for LOTR fans and Love of Nature's Cool Things
          Brenda was our driver and she was AWESOME! Super friendly, knowledgeable and very professional. Answered all our questions, really engaged with us on the drive. The Hobbiton was all this LOTR fan was hoping for - especially going into the two Hobbit Holes. Amber Ale at the Green Dragon was the perfect ending. Even though it's winter here now, the green landscape and flowers are still gorgeous. The Waitomo Glowworm Caves was so interesting and quite stunning to realize this is nature at its best. I highly recommend this trip.

          A great tour
          It's a great experience, beginning to end. They really take care if everything. We were picked up and dropped off at our hotel. They cover lunch and there's plenty of places to get more food along the way (yes we had a second breakfast at Hobbit Town). The drive through the countryside is just beautiful. I'm really glad we didn't do the highway all the way there. And our guide Mike was great: really friendly and helpful.

          We did the full day guided trip to Hobbiton and Glow Worms. We would go again. Our tour guide was so friendly, informative and accommodating. The Hobbiton tour was one for the books. Highly recommend. The glow worm cave was so interesting and amazing to see. 10/10 must do experience while you are visiting Auckland.

          Second Breakfast at Hobbiton
          An amazing and magical day with Mike from Auckland City Tours to Hobbiton and the Waitomo Glowworm Caves. What a guy! That smile never left his face. He knew everyones name and where we were all from. He took pictures of all of us throughout the day. Mike kept track of everyone at each stop/location and kept the tour on track and on time. The two hour drive from Auckland was stunning. Mike's knowledge of the area was a plus. Such a gorgeous countryside. Hobbiton was fantastic. Definitely worth the trip. Glowworm Caves were magical and an added bonus was the beautiful Maori song by Charly our cave guide. Highly recommend this tour.

          Thoroughly enjoyed the ride through the country and our pleasant, kind and knowledgeable guide, Jamie. Hobbiton blew my mind away. It was simply incredible. The ride to the glowworm caves was also a treat. The lunch was special. And at the caves, it was both educational and awesome.

          Unbelievable Experience
          Mike and Dean led the charge in what ended up being an amazing experience. They laid the groundwork along the journey and we had a blast. Hobbiton is beyond beautiful and Waitomo was mesmerizing. Highly recommend this tour. Few pointers: bring snacks and don’t load up on liquids as not a lot of places to stop along the way. Thanks Mike and Dean!!

          2nd breakfast at the shire
          The most enjoyable trip I’ve had. Non stop amazement. Highly recommend Hobbiton. Food was excellent, staff great & the shire was breathtaking. The Glow Worm Caves were awesome & Charlie sang beautifully. About a 12 hour day made all the more enjoyable by our tour guide Mike. He was the best. He knew everyone’s name and where we were from. We had quite a varied group from all over. Mike took pics of each, kept us together and on time. Very informative and great personality. He took good care of us.

          Mike of Auckland Scenic Tours was our guide for the day. He made the drive very enjoyable and educational. He was very helpful and eager to take pictures of us. This trip was amazing and Mike made it all that more special for my family and I. The staff at both Hobbiton and the caves were genuine and experienced. The food at Hobbiton was really good and priced well. I highly recommend this trip and company.

          We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of the Hobbiton Movie Set and Waitamo Glowworm Caves with our guide, Mike. The sites alone were awesome, but Mike made our long travel time so enjoyable with humor and interesting facts and stories along the way. I would give it 6 out of 5 stars if I could!

          Go for it
          Hobbiton was excellent and the highlight for me. If you’ve read or seen LOTR/The Hobbit, it’s very worth it. If you haven’t, it’s also worth it. Charming place with lovely staff and I was fortunate enough to go on an incredible day of perfect blue skies. Waitomo was also great, thoroughly enjoyed the tour around the caves then the shorter boat trip toward the end. It’s really pitch black and I saw huge numbers of glowworms. I can’t recall who the tour guide was for that but the young lady was great and she had an incredible singing voice. Our guide, Jamie, was a great guy. Personable, funny and had plenty of information to share between stops. Thanks!

          Happy day out
          Good company, they messaged us the night before with pick up time and the drivers name, Denny. Denny arrived on time and introduced us to the other passengers. He explained the day s outline and off we went for a terrific educational gently paced tour of Auckland and surrounding areas. Den was an experienced local and could answer all questions. The winery tasting, lunch and afternoon ice cream were all first class . A good day out. Thanks Greg and Jill Perth WA 01.05.24

        Michael was our tour guide for our trip to Hobbiton. He was really personable and made extra effort to make sure each person in our small tour group had a great time. We were picked up from our hotel for the journey through the Waikato region and out to The Shire. On our road trip Michael provided a commentary that became a conversation between new friends. At Hobbiton there is some time to use the restrooms, the cafe, visit the gift shop and take photos before Michael handed us over to the Hobbiton guide for a short drive to The Shire. My experience of LoTR is limited but the tour is so well done I was really impressed. The tour guide takes groups of about 30 people on a walking tour through the lush green undulating terrain of The Shire. The tour lasts about 1.5 hours. A new part of the tour includes going inside one of the hobbit holes where you can take photos in the various rooms. The attention to detail is amazing. At the end of the tour you will go inside the Green Dragon pub for a free drink. Michael, our tour guide, met us outside the Green Dragon and helped us with photos before our small group boarded the bus back to Auckland. Whilst the Hobbiton tour itself is amazing, the peace of mind and extra value of being with a knowledgeable tour guide like Muchael means you will get more from the experience than if you did it by yourself.

        Wow! Thank you for sharing such detailed comments about our tour and one of our tour guides. We agree with your comment "Whilst the Hobbiton tour itself is amazing, the peace of mind and extra value of being with a knowledgeable tour guide means you will get more from the experience than if you did it by yourself." Both from a cost perspective as we pride ourselves on our tour being the most cost-competitive available that DIY renting a car would struggle to match. But our guides are so knowledgeable as you experienced. We want you just to sit back in the comfort of one of our Mercedes and let one of our tour guides take care of all the little details as we transport you on our magical and enchanting tour to Middle Earth. It was a privilege hosting you. Thank you sincerely for choosing our tour.

        From the early morning pickup until our 2.30pm drop off, Dave from Auckland Scenic Tours took care of all the details ensuring the entire day was relaxing, informative & enjoyable.
        The drive in the luxury Mercedes van from Auckland CBD, through scenic Waikato backroads & highways to the most beautiful, magical & enchanting destination of Hobbiton Middle Earth sped by as Dave pointed out highlights & local history enroute.
        Dave personally handed us over and introduced us to Christian our Hobbiton Movie Set tour guide and was waiting for us at the Green Dragon Inn with beer, cider or ginger beer in hand.
        I was impressed by the attention & care Dave gave each guest, his knowledge and road driving safety focus.
        Lastly on the drive back to Auckland we stopped at a small village dairy and had the option to buy hand rolled ice creams.... needless to say everyone had one !!!
        A wonderful days journey for all ages !

        Michael was our driver/guide. Wonderful, informative and just an overall great guy. The actual Hobbiton tour is well done attraction & worth seeing. Ours was standalone but can be combined with an extra attraction (eg, glow worm cave). What distinguishes this tour operator from others was small size (10 people + driver on this tour) vs some that are larger. The actual Hobbiton tour is 1.5-2 hrs no matter who offers it. The difference in time between operators will be a factor of how much time they let you browse in store, hang around the green dragon for your free drink. This operator was by far the least expensive of the tours available when I booked ((>7 days in advance) and the only one I saw that picked you up at your hotel. Others gave you a choice of 1-5 locations to choice from. Highly recommend.

        I did a lot of research into which Hobbiton tour was the easiest and safest and I came across this deal by chance and it was worth it. David our tour guide was our savior , our protector and made our journey to middle earth extraordinary. There were 6 of us on the trip that day and I can guarantee you that everyone will agree with the statement.

        Mike has got to be the most considerate and insightful not just tour guide, but person that we've ever met. He was very knowledgeable about the areas around Hobbiton and also the history of New Zealand and its sights. Mike drove safely and was extremely friendly, open to any questions and kept us thoroughly entertained. Not only did he make sure our experience at Hobbiton was fun and easy, he also went the extra mile to show us a great icecream spot on the way back home to Auckland. Overall, I would 100% recommend booking Mike for a day tour, the rates are great but the experience was beyond my expectations!

        We have had an excellent tour with Auckland Scenic Tours to Hobbiton.
        It was worth the early start to be on the first tour of the day, with time for a quick café stop on arrival at Hobbiton. The whole trip was enjoyable with David being an excellent guide and the route from Auckland and back a different way took us through lovely countryside. We are not special Lord of the Rings fans but Hobbiton was amazing, such detail in the Hobbit Holes and gardens etc and the Green Dragon Inn with an excellent local guide telling us so much of the filming history. A really memorable trip.

        You are so right that you do not have to be a Lord of the Rings or Hobbit fan to enjoy this magical tour and the idyllic environment that is Hobbiton. We loved all your photos which we know you will look back on with such fond memories. Yes, the route that we have designed is special as it enables us to showcase the stunning and ever-changing scenery of this region of New Zealand. Thank you also for the lovely comments about one of our tour guides and for choosing our tour. Best wishes

        Personable, professional and a whole lot of fun!

        Auckland Scenic Tours are great communicators and really professional.

        Everything was really well organised, very clear and they did what they said they would.

        The driver Alex was very welcoming, kind and friendly, and the drive to the movie set was really enjoyable and very scenic with great landscape.

        The guide at Hobbiton was obviously a true fan and gave us great information. He also took photos for me which was really helpful and I appreciated a lot.

        After a great trip on the way back to Auckland suggested a bonus stop to get New Zealands special ice-cream, hokey pokey. This was a really nice was to finish a great trip. Thanks Alex and Auckland Scenic Tours for a great trip in every way.

        Merci bien !!

        Love your photos. Isn't the Hobbiton Movie Set the most magical and enchanting place you could ever visit? We really appreciated your lovely comments about one of our tour guides, the organization and communication of our company and the professionalism overall. You are right that the route that we have specially designed is stunningly beauty as for most of the day we get right off the motorways on to the quaint country roads. It was a privilege hosting you. Thank you sincerely for choosing our tour and best wishes.

        Auckland Scenic Tours was outstanding. I really appreciate their no cancellation policy as I was only there for a few days and had wanted to organise a trip to Hobbiton. David, my guide for the day was excellent. We definitely took the scenic route and I got to see some stunning scenery. Thank you for the great experience and I would definitely recommend them to family and friends wanting to explore Auckland and beyond.

        Thank you for these lovely comments about our Hobbiton Movie Set Tour and our Company. You are right that we never cancel a tour due to minimal numbers. We have 16 tours and we never have nor ever will cancel a tour for that reason. We want every one of our guests to have total confidence when booking with our Company that the tour that they book will occur regardless of the numbers on that tour. Thank you also for the lovely comments about the route that our Company has specially designed. As our name, Auckland Scenic Tours, suggests we have designed every one of our tours so that we always take the scenic routes. We want to showcase the stunning scenery of our Country, so we get right off the motorways onto the quaint country roads. Thank you also for the lovely comments about one of our tour guides. You experienced first hand why they are so renowned in our industry for their professionalism, affability, attention to detail and the huge depth of knowledge. Thank you sincerely for choosing our tour and best wishes.

        Wonderful full day tour with Matt to Hobbiton and on to Rotorua. Auckland Scenic Tours offers variations to this tour and flexible options. Matt is a fantastic guide with a wonderful sense of humor and extensive knowledge of the areas we visited. This company is professional and very responsive to all inquiries. We received updates and reminders. We can’t wait to return to New Zealand to see other areas that sadly were impacted by the recent tragic cyclone. Highly recommended and you will not be disappointed!
