What people are saying about Matamata

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.

Good to visit at least once if you like the Lord of the Rings

The place was nice and great to have a walk around and take photos. The downside of the tour was that it was too short and too fast-paced so we didn't have enough time to take the photo as we needed to follow the group that we belong to. The tour guide's voice wasn't very loud so it was difficult to catch what he was saying. Other than that, it was nice and kids were also enjoyed.

Very well organised with the amount of tourists going through!

We did not realise that the Hobbiton Movie set was so well set up. We were impressed from the time we arrived with the helpful reception staff to the great coffee, to the tour guide (Margot) and the bus driver. Well done! It is a great tourist attraction for New Zealand. Also the refreshments at the end. Thank you!

The music started, and my wife began to cry. It just got better.

Maybe it was because my wife and daughter had seen the movies 20 times ( probably more).... but whatever the reason the tour was waited for with huge anticipation ... and delivered brilliantly . Charles was great, the stout very good and to see the shire was better than visiting Disneyland. Sorry we missed Peter.

A very relaxing and nostalgic couple hours.

All staff encountered were very lovely, efficient and knowledgeable. The guide (Dutch guy, very sorry I can't remember your name) was very funny, charming and made you feel very welcome. He also has what takes to be a cattle herder ;) an all round incredible experience and would definitely come again.
