Hobbiton Movie Set
Jun 2021
Hobbiton Movie Set is the best tourist experience I have ever had.
The attention to detail is amazing, and the whole village is beautifully kept. One expected a hobbit to pop out of a house, or be working in the garden!
Our guide, Sunny, is knowledgeable, humorous, and included everyone.
The Green Dragon inn has such ambience and feels so welcoming.
Value for money, I highly recommend the walking tour.

Hobbiton experience
May 2021 • Family
It was a magical experience, if you are a fan of the lord of the rings or you may have read the book this is a must tour. Its not just a boring walk through hobbit houses, the tour guides are knowledgeable and will entertain you. Shoutout to our tour guide sunny, he is amazing and funny, he entertained us throughout our tour. Even became our photographer. Haha
Also to Craig for driving us to the movie set.

Beautiful views and lovely sets
Jun 2021 • Family
Came here in Jun 21 with my 10 year old. Was last here in 2013/14 summer. It is so much better this time. You park at Shire's Rest and board a bus. The bus is clean, new and air-conditioned. It takes you to the actual set. The set is very very well maintained. Or looks the same as when I went years ago. The tour guide was amazing. The only complaint is that it felt a bit rushed. I would have liked more time.

Hobbiton
Had a great experience here visiting Hobbiton Movie set. We had Jacob as our tour guide who was most informative and helpful as both a photographist and tour guide. Sony our bus driver also friendly and comical. A great couple of hours tour finishing up at the Green Dragon for a cider and stout on the house.

Step into the Shire
May 2021
What an experience, step into the shire and around every bend you fully expect to see the Hobbits out and about. The detail and ongoing care for this spectacular spot is seen where ever you go. The staff are very friendly and the tour guide was great

Great family activity!
May 2021 • Family
Booked the tour after a recommendation from family since we were in the general area. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit and are so pleased we made the effort to go. Staff were very friendly and helpful especially after we were caught in traffic on our way there. They waited as long as they could for us to make the departure but unfortunately we had to be booked on the next time slot. The tour itself was great. So much to see and enjoyed the commentary from our tour guide Eli who shared insights about the movie set which I really enjoyed. Because the weather was a bit 50/50 there were umbrellas available to take at the start of the tour which was helpful (thankfully didn’t need them!). Would definitely recommend wearing comfortable walking shoes. There’s plenty of time to see everything and take photos so don’t feel you need to rush.
