We booked this not knowing really what to expect. Our guide Sonny was great, such an awesome sense of humor, really made it fun! He had some really good info for us about things on the set you would never have known. The whole place was pretty awesome and good to see it will last a lot longer Would highly recommend The shop has a lot of stuff in it, some nice t shirts amongst other things. A fascinating tour to do even if you never saw any movies

Walking through the set was incredible and our guide was very interesting and informative. I would suggest that you have good walking shoes and walk at your pace. There is no need to rush as there is plenty to see and our guide did not hurry us along. Well worth the experience and amazing how they built the Hobbit Holes into the country side - they look exceptionally real. We were lucky to have a beautiful fine day in May and a day with not many children as school had gone back after the holidays
