What people are saying about Auckland (Region)

Chris (driver/quide with Auckland and Beyond) was great! Got us there and back again in a timely manner with humor and care. Got to Hobbiton and it seemed everyone working there knew and liked him, from the other drivers to the guides showing us around the movie set. Highly recommend you continuing working with A&B in the future.

Touring Hobbiton was a unique experience. Despite the 2.5 hour transit each way, the tour was well worth the expenditure of time. The attention to detail of the setting and dwellings was impressive. Highly recommended for any fan of the LOTR series.

It was amazing and breathtaking plus Chris our tour guide from Auckland Beyond and Tours are such lovely funny and kind! He made the tour to the another level ❤️❤️❤️

The Hobbiton experience tied all of the Tolkien movies and books together and put us into the movie itself. It allowed visualization of the book.

great experience, Simon is a nice person and a good driver
