We were made so welcome. We were lucky with the weather which made the whole experience very pleasurable. There were four of us and we all agreed it was better than we had expected. We had expected it to be good but it was more than that. We loved it. My friend and I were taken in the golf cart and that was so wonderful. My friend has a fused ankle so can't walk well and I have a heart issue (heart failure actually) so I cannot walk up even the slightest incline without running out of breath. I feel I have to explain this because neither of us look as though we need the golf cart for people with disabilities but neither of us could have done the tour on foot. I can't tell you how much we appreciated that cart tour. And the man who drove us (Nick?) was wonderful. Hobbiton was bigger than I thought it would be. As a New Zealander I felt very proud that we have this marvelous place to show off. I might even have to see the films now since I never have.

It is awesome to have the opportunity to see the Hobbiton movie set in all its realism and glory. This re-enacts Tolkien, J. R. R books and Peter Jackson's movies back to life. The endless amount of work that has been put into the creation of the Hobbiton village is unsurpassed brilliance.

Magical place on such a lovely day. Lots of lovely hobbit holes and flowers. You need to keep up with your guide. I could have spent all day thereooking at all the detail and relaxing in the green dragon pub, rather than a couple of hours.

Amazingly spectacular experience. Super clear views of the fish. Stunning caves and scenery. I am still buzzing from the enjoyment. I highly recommend this enthralling experience. Super friendly staff who go above and beyond!

We thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Our guide was excellent. Made the experience even more interesting. Was great to be on the set where such good movies were made.
