This middle earth movie set tour was perfect--the weather, size of tour, the British humor of our tour guide Nick. My husband and I enjoyed every minute of it. We also went to the glow worm caves on same tour, and doing two very different things in one day was just the ticket.

Thank you for sharing these lovely comments about our tour. You are right that on our tour you experience what New Zealanders widely regard as the 2 most famous attractions in New Zealand in this 1 day return excursion from Auckland. Our Mercedes transportation is either 12 or 15 seater, so as you mention this provides the personal environment that you mentioned which you clearly enjoyed. All our tour guides are highly knowledgeable, professional and affable and you clearly appreciated this. We felt privileged to share these attractions with you. Thank you for choosing our tour and best wishes for 2020

Thank you for taking the time to write these lovely comments about our tour. Our tour is unique in that as our name suggests, Auckland Scenic Tours, we get off the busy motorways for some 80% of the day and take a specially designed scenic route where we can showcase the stunning scenery, fauna and flora of the region. Some roads we travel on you scarcely see a car which is why we see the day very much as a journey and experience rather just getting you there and back as quickly as possible. We also appreciate your comments on our tour guide as we pride ourselves on their deep knowledge, professionalism, affability and attention to the little detail to ensure you miss the crowds, the queues and the lines. Thank you for choosing our tour

Thank you! We appreciate you taking the time to share these lovely comments about our tour and one of our tour guides. We pride ourselves on the knowledge, professionalism, affability and safety focus of all our guides. From the moment we pick you up from your hotel (on time as you mention as we pride ourselves on our punctuality) we start as strangers but it is clear that when our guide finally farewelled you, you were like family. That is the nature of our tours. We want to take care of all the little details, many behind the scenes, to ensure that you will have a special day that you will treasure. It is clear in reading your comments that you had exactly that. Thank you and best wishes for the remainder of 2019

Well worth visiting while you're in the Auckland area - a fascinating insight into the LOTR films with amazing set still intact and the vegetables and fruits are still growing and tended by a small army of gardeners! Buffet lunch was included and this was delicious. Great tour

Booked online and the response was prompt, positive & clear. Our driver was punctual, professional & friendly and the van was clean & comfortable. Nick entertained us with stories and local knowledge on the way down to Hobbiton. Having departed Auckland early, we arrived before

Thank you for sharing your comments on our Hobbiton Movie Set Tour and particularly our staff. We pride ourselves on the knowledge and professionalism of our guides and letting our team take care of the smaller details to enhance our guests' enjoyment. For us, it is important for our guests to miss the queues and the crowds so that their experience of Hobbiton is a special one and one that they will always remember. We see this tour as a journey and with this in mind we journey off the motorways, which are the faster routes, so that our guests can additionally see the real New Zealand countryside. Thank you for choosing our tour and best wishes for 2018
