an amazing day
Jul 2021
I went to hobbiton with friends. When i found out that my friends had reserved places to go, I was excited to go. We were able to visit the village and do a Movie set 2 hours walking tour from shires Rest. I was moved when I met some of the actors in the film. We stayed there during the day and I recommend all fans like me to go there

Marvelous !!!

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).

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. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
