Highly enjoyable tour!

I highly recommend the Hobbiton tour. Sean made the 2 to 2.5 hr trip from Auckland to Hobbiton interesting and enjoyable. About 1/2 way there we stopped for a quick lunch break. On our return journey we stopped off for delicious ice cream. Our driver, Sean, was always helpful and friendly. Great Hobbiton tour - the lunch feast was good but a little rushed for me.

A Hobbit's Tale

Our tour guide Dawn was fantastic, arrived on time and made side stops for us to have breakfast along the way to The Shire. Hobbiton itself was everything I was expecting and more! You couldn't help but pinch yourself being in a memorable place in childhood and as a Tolkien fan. We saw all the famous 40 Hobbit holes from LOTR and The Hobbit. From the Green Dragon pub to the iconic green door of Bag End. Our tour ended with an all you can buffet fit for 2nd Breakfast. Would definitely do this tour again in the distant future.
