I did the Hobbiton day tour back in november. The driver picked us up at our hotel and we went on a 2h30 trip to Mata Mata. The views along the way are fascinating and our driver was very entertaining. He gave us informations about Auckland's history and even recommended a few pubs. I just thought that the Hobbiton tour itself was too short and we didn't have enough time to take photos but the guide was a lot of fun telling all kinds of stories about crazy LOTR fans. Unfortunately the Green Dragon wasn't open so we just saw it from the outside. Lunch was good as well. Overall it was a great day, even though it was a little expensive.
