My colleague and I selected Archer tour from a plethora of available tours and hoped for the best. We were not disappointed! Jim (the owner) was easy to get in contact with and he more than accommodated our requests as regards time for departure, pick-up site etc. We were picked up at our accommodations, at a time of our choice. Our great guide/driver, Graham, was friendly, professional and extremely knowledgeable about all sites to and from Hobbiton. He took us to several sites both on the way there and back, which was lovely as we got to see the beautiful countryside. We stopped at beautiful locations and had plenty of time to take photos. We arrived at Shire's Rest about 15 minutes before our tour time of 11:15 am. Here we were met by our Hobbition tour guide, Hayden, for an informative 2 hour tour around the movie set location. Hayden gave us a lot of background information on the film and the set and helped people with photographs. It was interesting to hear details of how Hobbiton was made, and the many little detail issues that cropped up during filming. Before ending the Hobbiton movie set tour we stopped for a beer at the Green Dragon Inn (included in the price). It was also possible to have a bite to eat here, as they done various dishes such as pies, chips, scones and so on (not included in the price). Hobbiton delivers everything you expect and more. Graham took us back to Hamilton safely. This tour was well worth the time and price. It was a great tour all around!
