Any LOTR movie fans will love this great tour. Walking tour thru Hobbiton was amazing. Could have used a bit more time at end for shopping due to crowd. Note that due to size, Hobbiton was not crowed even with several groups going thru at same time.

We had an amazing day. Went to Hobbiton, but not only that! The company tried to give 3 or 4 services extra... with no extra charge! Went to some stores, waterfalls... an amazing car drive.

A wonderful day at Hobbiton. The weather was perfect, so that helped. I was amazed at the extent of the village. Our tour bus driver added on a couple of stops after the Hobbiton visit, which was great as it was not expected. A lovely walk to a waterfall capped off the day.
