Loved your head line "10!! Out of 5 :)). " It is clear you had a very special day visiting the most famous and iconic attraction in New Zealand and also a lot of fun. We want all our 16 tours to be fun; to be an adventure. You clearly had both and also so pleased to read that one of our tour guides helped make our Hobbiton Movie set Tour a day that you will remember for a long, long time. Isn't Hobbiton the most idyllic and enchanting place you could ever visit. I suspect also that you have some magical photos that you will treasure. Thank you for choosing our tour.

Thank you! Isn't our Hobbiton Movie Set Tour the most magical experience you could ever have on a 7 Hour return excursion from Auckland? We want you to just sit back as we journey to Middle Earth in the comfort of one of our yellow Mercedes and be transported along the quaint county roads (specially designed by our Company) en route with spectacular and ever-changing scenery into the enchanting world of Hobbiton. Is there any more idyllic location? Thank you also for the lovely comments about one of our tour guides and for choosing our tour. Our guides, as you experienced first hand, are renowned for their depth of knowledge of not only Hobbiton and the points of interest en route but equally Auckland on our Historic CBD Walking Tour but the greater Auckland as well as you experienced.

Love your photo in one of the 44 Hobbit Holes! You are so right that our Hobbiton Movie Set Tour is an " Absolute Must Do" whilst in Auckland. We were privileged to transport you to Middle Earth. Isn't the Hobbiton Movie Set set in the most serene, tranquil and idyllic location that you could ever imagine. You never want to leave. We have 16 tours and for every one, it is a journey, an experience and we appreciated you commenting on that and how one of our guides made your day even more special. We pride ourselves on the professionalism, affability, attention-to-detail and the deep knowledge of every one of our guides. Thank you sincerely for choosing our tour. Best Wishes

Love your photos and your head line " Incredible Tour Guide." Isn't our Hobbiton Movie Set Tour the most magical and enchanting experience as we transport you to Middle Earth on the quaintest country roads in this region. This is the perfect Short Day Excursion from Auckland where you get to see the most famous and iconic attraction in New Zealand. What is more you don't have to be a Hobbit fan, read any of the Tolkein Books or watched any of the movies. This is a stand alone tour where you can capture the most amazing photos as you experienced and just marvel at the intricate detail and the idyllic setting. Thank you for these lovely comments about one of our tour guides. You experienced first hand why our guides are so renowned for their depth of knowledge. Thank you sincerely for choosing our tour.

Our tour guide David was amazing! He has heaps of knowledge about our destination and some nice spot which were on the way to the Matamata. And also Hobbiton itself was Awesome! It was exactly what I saw in the film. Definitely it worth to take this tour if you’ve watched LOTR or Hobbit movies. You can cross off one of things on your bucket list!

We loved your headline " Amazing Tour." Isn't the Hobbiton Movie Set the most idyllic place you could ever visit? What's more you do not have to be a Lord of the Rings or Hobbit fan to enjoy our simply magical and enchanting tour; half the people who visit the Hobbiton Movie Set have never watched one of the Movies or read any of these Tolkein Books. This is a stand alone tour as you marvel at the intricate detail. I sense also that you loved our specially designed route which gave our tour guide the opportunity to showcase the stunning and ever-changing scenery of this region to you. Thank you also for these lovely comments about one of our tour guides. You are right that our guides are renowned for their depth of knowledge and you experienced this first hand. We want our guests just to sit back as we take care of all the little details as we transport you to Middle Earth and enjoy our Hobbiton Movie Set Tour; the perfect return day excursion from Auckland. Thank you sincerely for choosing our tour.

Hobbiton Movie Set - five stars
May 2021
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.

Isn’t Hobbiton and the Movie Set the most beautiful, as you mention, and idyllic location you could ever wish is spend several hours in as you marvel at the detail that Sir Peter Jackson created. The vision that he had in locating what he subsequently shaped into Middle Earth is simply magical. It epitomizes everything that is beautiful about New Zealand. Is there any more enchanting experience than travelling through the highly elevated farm and see the Movie Set come alive in front of your eyes. But, as you know appreciate, you don’t have to have watched any of the Movies or read any of the Tolkein books to marvel at the creativity. This is a stand- alone tour. The photographic opportunities are endless as you mention and I guess you have so many that you will look back on in years to come and cherish the time you spent at Hobbiton. Thank you sincerely for choosing our tour. Stay safe and best wishes.
