  • "Well worth the visit to this Hobbit Film location. Your guide is very knowledgeable and brings the scenes to life. You are not rushed and only small groups go out, only 5 people on our tour. Well worth including this incredible, scenic site in your itinerary." - Jeff Butler

  • "Exceeded expectation with some unadvertised surprises. Very personable guide filled with the kind of anecdotes a Tolkien fan appreciates. Even if you've never seen the movies, the scenery is spectacular and surprising in its diversity." - Richard Cadena

  • "Our tour was given by the owner Warrick who did a fantastic job of bringing to life the filming done on his property of "The Hobbit" and he was wonderful. His property is absolutely beautiful. And his stories of the filming were so interesting. He is so passionate about his tours and it shows. We wished we could have stayed longer and just talked to him and roamed his property. This is a must see tour." - Monica Welke

  • "Booking was quick and simple, all I had to do was turn up and everything was sorted! Loved the tour, loved the day! Wish there were other Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit locations with this kind of amazing experience! Suzie was great, enthusiastic and very friendly. Really made the tour into something special!" - David Vaughan-Jackson

  • "Effortless booking online and were warmly greeted at the site on the day by Warrick and his lovely wife. The tour was fantastic, both hosts were extremely enthusiastic and well-informed about the Hobbit and it’s filming. Their farm is gorgeous on its own, but it was extremely cool to also be immersed in part of The Hobbit. THANK YOU for a memorable experience." - Terryanne Fletcher

  • "This tour exceeds expectations. Our guide had great stories about the filming, and walked us through shot by shot the locations. She was fun to listen to and interact with. Thanks for setting up such an amazing experience on your farm!" - Candace Warzecha
