Owner description: The Hobbiton Movie Set tour is an essential stop on the itinerary for all visitors travelling through New Zealand, offering an interesting and entertaining experience incorporating the famous film set as seen in The Lord of The Rings and The Hobbit trilogies. Fall in love with the Alexander family sheep and beef farm, just as acclaimed director Sir Peter Jackson did, as you journey through the village, with the mighty Kaimai Ranges towering in the distance. Your guide will then escort you around the set, showing you the intricate detailing, pointing out the most famous locations and explaining how the movie magic was made. You will be taken around the 12 acre set; past Hobbit holes, the Mill and into the famous Green Dragon™ Inn, where you can indulge in our exclusive, specially brewed beverages to conclude your own Middle-earth™ adventure.

Okay, so we've seen the movies, but we aren't crazy fans by any means. But this place is really worth the visit! We booked it as a day tour out of Auckland and it did not disappoint. Even if you had no knowledge of the story, you would appreciate a beautiful walk through an amazing locale - with the added bonus of it being a real movie set. Yes, there are lots of people there, but we found that things moved along well and we never felt crowded. Our tour ended at the Green Dragon Inn and lunch was included for us. Is it expensive? Yes, but it is really worth it!

We had a lovely time during this tour. Tour group contained approximately 50 other persons. Plenty of time for photos. More then ample food at the banquet for everyone - homestyle food, such as lambshanks and mash, beef stew, roast chicken etc.

The tour was great the only problem is you do not have as much time as we would like. There are so many tours coming and going that you are on a tight schedule. Absolutely bring your camera don't leave home without it. Great place to take photos. The lunch which was included in our tour was very good but once again a bit of a rush. Weather was a bit up and down so rain gear was good to have and we would suggest good walking shoes the trails get a little slick if it is raining. It was one of the highlights of our New Zealand tour. But then we are Hobbit fans.

This is a very nice place to visit for all groups, but especially for Hobbit fans. Well worth the entry charge. The tour guide was excellent and the scenery was beautiful.
