It's very nice to see a film set like this for once. Especially from such an ironic film. You know it's going to look smaller than it looks in the movie. But still... and with the commentary and tidbits from our guide it was a fantastic experience. The artificial tree above the Bagings house was really fantastic; a lot of work for a few seconds of film, but insanely detailed.

Ticketorga worked great! It is a very special experience to immerse yourself in the hobbit world. It's all so lovingly prepared - even the chimneys in the Hobbit Holes are steaming like someone's home

Memorable experience. Very nice place and views. The guide was very informative and fun. I recommend this to everyone as it is truly amazing.

Great place to spend some time in nature and learn about the LOTR movies.

It's an amazing experience for us. Thank you so much .
