Hobbiton was beautiful. The gardens were stunning and our guide Sonny was upbeat and passionate. But it was packed and it completely ruined the experience. Large tour groups, could barely hear the guide. Couldn’t move or see through all of the people. 3 groups ended up merging into 1 and then we just got stuck in lines waiting for a brief glimpse at the houses. 10/10 for our guide but we hated how packed it was.

Hobbiton was beautiful and so charming and bigger than we expected. Our guide was great, both funny and informative.

Very cool place, looked a lot like in the real movie. You even get a free drink (beer/cider) after the tour.

Amazing day. Tour is outstanding and the Dragon Inn at the end of the trip makes it with an included drink in your admission. Cider, beer, ale.... Staff are very enthusiastic about Hobbiton, you enjoy the tour wether you are a fan or not!

Expensive and lots of tourists. But even with that it is a 10/10 because we were the last group so we were really along in the 'Shire' and it is a really little town that you find here. Don't need to be a LOTR fan.

Although rather expensive, it is great fun to walk along the movie set of the 'Shire'. Hearing the 'behind the scenes' information is a great plus. Very friendly tour guide and although I am not a huge Hobbit/LOTR fan, I enjoyed this trip very much!

Must do when you are a LOTR/Hobbit fan! Very nice setting, details and very well maintained! Come early morning or late afternoon (because of tours/overcrowding).
