What people are saying about Matamata
I liked the small travel to Hobbiton Movie set. There should be seat allocated for family rather then first come and first serve to please your own self. The air conditioning was poor in the bus. I would recommend to take Sun glasses with you on a hot sunny day. Most of the hobbit Houses were closed which were a put off as unable to enter them. The Traveler guide should have a mini speaker with them when explaining about the location at times if you are behind you are unable to Catch up or Listen to her story. At the main pub Only Beer was available there was No fizzy Soda Drink or juice. The Price of tickets are costly, and it’s not cost effective. I know it is a standard Adult Rate there but will appreciate a Price Drop of $30- 40 From $89. Enjoyed some of Hobbiton houses and their surroundings Garden were beautiful.
The absolute BEST day, couldn’t have wished for a better experience. The details are impeccable, the landscapes just stunning. Our guide was full of wonderful facts and movie insights, and made the day so enjoyable. It would have been easy to spend another 30mins looking around, but the 2 hours is good, and held the interest of my 5 year old the whole time. Impressed that the food available didn’t cost an arm and a leg as it does at some attractions, and nice to have a free ale at the Green Dragon as part of the tour. An absolutely wonderful day, highly recommend to all, we have come away even bigger LOTR fans than ever before. Thank you!!
Excellent tour guide -Kevin made it fun and enjoyable. Such a wonderful tour, just the right number of people in the group., beautiful village, lovely setting. Just the right amount of time to see everything. Nice refreshing drink at the end. There is nothing negative to say. You’ll enjoy it even if you aren’t a Hobbit or LOTR fan like myself.
Much better than I expected. I really only went to keep my teenage daughter company and was not expecting to be so impressed. Sitting in beautiful countryside, the sets are amazing. The attention to detail was spectacular. Our guide was very friendly and extremely knowledgeable. I did think it was a little expensive.
Three generations aged between 3 and 73, 11 of us to celebrate an 11th birthday, had a great morning touring with Mike. A reasonably priced lunch at the Hobbiton cafe rounded out the successful visit. Highly recommended.
