      The Hobbiton tour was amazing. The whole family really enjoyed this set visit and the fantastic attention to detail. Benji our tour guide was a real character and a wealth of information and the bus driver was a great guy too! Totally recommended to anyone. A very well put together and beautifully maintained experience. A little expensive but when you consider the amount of work required to build this facility and maintain it then you can see why this is.

      Beautiful place I have ever been to. Very good tour guider. A good way your guider related the movie set place to the movie scenes. So much time effort and resources have been used to create this hobbit town. Proud of how it has been maintained over the years and many more years to come. My kids loved it.

      Really enjoyed our time at Hobbiton! Well organised, felt like we had a good amount of time to look around and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. Plenty of opportunities for photos and good info from the guide. Complimentary drink at the end was a nice touch and a great way to end the experience. Would definitely recommend, whether you're a fan or not!
