Overview

But this is more than just a there-and-back-again Lord of the Rings tour: also spend some time in the secluded New Zealand bush at McLaren Falls Park and see the striking titular waterfall.

We had a fantastic time with our guide Stephen. There were only four of us on the tour, which made it a very personal experience. Stephen was friendly, informative and knowledgable about the area/tour. He even squeezed in a couple of extra stops, which went above and beyond what we were expecting. He was such a great guide and we thoroughly recommend his service...especially as he provided yummy brownies too.

Nice all day tour of the city , countryside and Hobbiton. Steven was very pleasant and knowledgeable. Wife and I were in the 30% who visited Hobbiton without ever seeing any of the movies or reading the books . It is a beautiful setting and a nice tour of the movie set . Worth going whether or not your a fan .
