What people are saying about Matamata

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.

Hobbiton Movie Set Premium Day Tour from Auckland Reviewed by Saumay, 06/25/2019

Interestingly informative and interactive without being dragged on

Had a fantastic day with my 7 year old twin mokos. Started with the bus ride with a video and some background into the land and movie then a lunch buffet for all 3 of us (under 8s dine free with paying adult) then walking tour with a great tour guide who was very accommodating and patient toward my mokos (25 July 120pm buffet tour) Many interesting facts you wouldn’t know about the movie. A very worthwhile $118NZ spent for a day of memories with my mokos. Thank you so much

So much more than just transit and tickets to Hobbiton

Our guide David was excellent. We managed to get out early to catch the sunrise (and some beautiful photos) of the Matamata area around Hobbiton and were the first tour of the day (nobody else to get in your shots!) The New Zealand scenic routes were fantastic to get a taste of New Zealand outside the larger towns and David's tips were extremely helpful for where to go and what to look for at each location.

Great tour but it was not clear lunch was not before the tour

Tour guide was outstanding - funny, knowledgeable, and clear. We got there at noon to have lunch before the 1:20 tour but the lunch is part of the tour - so we ate a lot. The food is great. The tour is everything you would expect. Lots of great opportunities for family pictures.
