What people are saying about Matamata

We’ve read the books, seen the movie and been to Hobbiton - awesome!

We loved the tour and our tour guide was fantastic and so enthusiastic. You’ve put such a lot into Hobbiton and it’s great to see it paying off. Comments from our party: People Dressed up as Hobbits at the houses. Green Dragon fabulous. Gift shop was great but need some reasonably priced jewellery, even if less quality. We are from Australia and this was the highlight of our trip. Thanks so much

Hobbiton Movie Set Guided Tour Reviewed by David, 04/02/2019

If you love LOTR, you have to come here!

We joined small tour group which Nick was driving for us. The Hobbiton was so great because everything from the movie was just in front of you!!!! We went Waitomo Cave after that and it was also great. Both were life time experiences. I would like to say thank you to Nick because he always cared about us and talked about lots of trivias about Auckland! Even we were from Japan, we understood because he talked really slow for tourists. Thank you very much Nick! We had a great time in New Zealand!!!!

Great tour, with unexpected expertise and advice

Had a great time(even though i sleep half the day, as i have been on the move for 20+days) Andrew was great , very very intune with New Zealand and its culture and true compas to the hidden gems that lye within. Cave was cute (been in bigger and much wetter) but the guide on the tour was fun and has the most amazing voice. Angels usually don’t walk with us , but she must be on loan. . Hobbition was as much fun if not more than my last visit in 2012. Guy was a great tour guide and I enjoyed the spark in his voice that even got my NOT LOTR FAN wife happy and enticed to ask more. Thanks to everyone that made this day great. PS its the little details that make any adventure more that expected and the ostrich and trubine side trips were fun. Spend a little time deciding how you are going to present them and everybody will love them. even though who cant stomach a suspension bridge.
