Great trip

I was not that interested in Hobbiton when booking the trip. Once I got there it was pretty cool. The Glow Worm caves were great. Matt our guide was incredibly nice and informative. He was easy to talk to and approachable. I'm glad I went in a small group.

Perfect day to spend a day trip

While there was a bit of driving involved, it did not feel rushed and it was a perfect amount of time for a solid day's worth of fun and adventure. I am a huge Tolkien fan so Hobbiton was right up my alley. You see up to 40 hobbit holes and get to drink at the Green Dragon Inn as well. The glow worms felt like you were in a sensory deprivation tank and staring up at constellations.

Awesome experience!

Awesome experience! Tour is amazing, you have to wake up early but the best thing is that you arrive first at hobbiton and there are 0 people there (only hobbits :)) so the pics are great! Thanks team!
