The tale of how an idyllic sheep farm became the setting for Jackson's Hobbiton is an adventure in itself. The sets are exquisite in detail and design. The Green Dragon stout and meat pies were savory. First John our guide, then Peter with Hobbiton tour brought the Tolkien

What a great review and title, obviously a serious LOTR and Hobbit fan. So pleased you had a great day on our combination Rotorua Geothermals and Hobbiton Tour TRG-16, its one of our most popular programs despite it being at least 8 hours long. Its a tour the ships do not offer direct so our smaller groups can get around to show you all the things you mention and still be back on board in good time, thanks again, Ian

John our tour guide was fabulous, very knowledgeable and kept the pace going so we didn’t miss anything plus we got a couple of extra sights. Hobbiton movie set was really good & Rotorua was great. We even saw the elusive Kiwi.

The Kiwi is a bonus as they are often sleeping, but the new [opened a few months ago] Kiwi Bird House at Te Puia is much better for viewing these endangered birds. You selected a great tour and had a great guide. Regards Ian

Delighted with this tour. You get both tours of the geothermal and the Hobbitton set for the price of one. Our guide was over the top with his knowledge. He also gave us several other short stops/drive by of other things in the area.
