Totally recommend the Hobbiton Movie Set tour. From tour bus driver (Pip) to our guide Charlotte, the tour was absolutely fantastic. I hadn’t seen the movies but wanted to tour the site & scenery. I’ll be watching all the movies now. Worth every $$.

Hi Emma, sadly I'd have to agree with the other guys; especially in wet conditions. However, I would contact the Hobbiton team as I'm sure they've dealt with this query before and I'm not experienced in this. Good luck.
