This was so much fun. Seeing the homes of the Hobbit’s was great. The caretakers here take great pains to keep everything so perfect. The beautiful rolling hills surrounding the area are spectacular.

A well organised & informative tour but unless you are a real fan of the movies would not recommend doing as it is an expensive activity.
