Hobbiton Movie Set Guided Tour
- Duration: 2 hours
I liked the small travel to Hobbiton Movie set. There should be seat allocated for family rather then first come and first serve to please your own self. The air conditioning was poor in the bus. I would recommend to take Sun glasses with you on a hot sunny day. Most of the hobbit Houses were closed which were a put off as unable to enter them. The Traveler guide should have a mini speaker with them when explaining about the location at times if you are behind you are unable to Catch up or Listen to her story. At the main pub Only Beer was available there was No fizzy Soda Drink or juice. The Price of tickets are costly, and it’s not cost effective. I know it is a standard Adult Rate there but will appreciate a Price Drop of $30- 40 From $89. Enjoyed some of Hobbiton houses and their surroundings Garden were beautiful.
The absolute BEST day, couldn’t have wished for a better experience. The details are impeccable, the landscapes just stunning. Our guide was full of wonderful facts and movie insights, and made the day so enjoyable. It would have been easy to spend another 30mins looking around, but the 2 hours is good, and held the interest of my 5 year old the whole time. Impressed that the food available didn’t cost an arm and a leg as it does at some attractions, and nice to have a free ale at the Green Dragon as part of the tour. An absolutely wonderful day, highly recommend to all, we have come away even bigger LOTR fans than ever before. Thank you!!
Worried that there would be too many people walking in the same place as us and the birds would not be comfortable to hang about. Once we were on our walk we barely saw anyone else, and we saw lots of birds, and hopefully we have some great photos. Even saw a Takahe ahead on the track, although it disappeared down a bank before we came adjacent to it.
Much better than I expected. I really only went to keep my teenage daughter company and was not expecting to be so impressed. Sitting in beautiful countryside, the sets are amazing. The attention to detail was spectacular. Our guide was very friendly and extremely knowledgeable. I did think it was a little expensive.
Such a good trip, saves you driving and getting distracted looking at all the sights! Sliding the Te Paki dunes was a blast, our tour driver was awesome and had lots of local knowledge on the towns/areas we drove through. Would definitely recommend!
