Worth every cent we paid for this tour, staff and value for money exceptional!!! I would recommend this tour to anyone, I had an 8 year old and my elderly parents with me that have never seen the movies and every one of us enjoyed it immensely. Thank you for an amazing experience, we were the first group so we had the shire to ourselves for most of the tour.

Wow! Wow! Wow! We are so glad we did this tour. Our guide, Sunny, made every moment enjoyable. We could walk through the set on our own pase and had ample time to take photos. We would do this tour again.

There weren't any highlights actually and I have travelled many tours around the world

Very expensive for a two hour walk around the farm and dependent on how fast or slow you walk is the time it takes to complete the tour. At the end of the tour it was flat as just given a drink and time out while waiting for the bus. It could be made exciting if there was a little clip or movie in the shires nest while consuming the drink.
