What people are saying about Matamata

Enjoyed the trip and the efficiency of booking the activity.

Love the entire activity: from Hobbiton to Rotorua and Waitomo Caves. Booking was easy breezy. Got Confirmation via email right away and coach service/driver was very precise with pick up time (which i like!) at the hotel where we stayed. Just a little glitch for me was the time allotted for lunch and tour at Te Puia in Rotorua. Felt like we had to rush our buffet lunch just so we’ll have ample time for the tour of the area (which is kinda huge). So we ended up not being able to go around some more coz time wasnt enough. Somehow, we also wanted to enjoy our lunch after the Hobbiton activity. But all in all, it was great! Thanks! No hidden whatsover (fees, incidents, etc) unlike other tours we have experienced from diff countries with other companies.

Must for LOTR lovers and anyone who likes cool nature activities!

If you love the hobbit or Lord of the Rings this trip is a must! It’s an early day but Nick, our driver, got us there before the crowds and everyone goes on the same length tour through Hobbiton itself which is just gorgeous- over 40 hobbit holes and the Green Dragon is very nice too! The Waitomo caves were incredible- our guide gave us the history of the limestone caverns and her people’s connection to them. Her great great grandfather was the chief of the local Maori people who discovered the caverns and they have been running tours since the late 1800s! The gloworm looked like constellations above us but you can’t take any pictures!

If you’re thinking of doing it, grab the chance!

I was a bit nervous going on a trip like this because I would be going alone, but as soon as I arrived I knew I made a great choice! Raphael was a brilliant driver, so friendly and kept us entertained from Auckland to Hobbiton with some really interesting commentary about New Zealand. Danny (Danilo) was also an amazing guide round Hobbiton itself, a true credit to the organisation! The whole trip was so smooth - the only downside is it didn’t last longer! I could have easily stayed there for a week it was so fun! Thank you so so much for organising this!

Chris (our tour guide) and the movie set, both were amazing!

My tour guide up to Hobbiton was Chris (from the Auckland and Beyond Tours). Fabulous person! Lucky to have him on that day. The tour guide at the Hobbiton, though, seemed to be in a hurry (that's something I didn't expect). In my opinion, he didn't give us enough time to roam around and enjoy our beer (in fact, he seemed upset because we took a bit longer to take the bus). The rest was perfect. A must see scenic beauty (whether you are a fan of the movies or not). Would definitely like to visit it again.

Amazing all in one trip, with an exceptional guide.

I highly recommend this tour! We didn’t have to drive all the back roads and through traffic. The van was comfortable. We had breaks to stretch and use the facilities. Nick, our guide, was phenomenal: friendly, knowledgeable, and a great driver. Lunch was included and tasty. And the tours were fantastic: even better than I expected! Thank you so much fir a wonderful day! You even provided beautiful weather.
