Exceptional service, driver and experience on our outing today!
Apr 2021
My family and I took the Hobbiton movie set tour today and John was our host. He was excellent and we enjoyed his company today. John has a great deal of knowledge about the area and about Hobbiton, which made for a very enjoyable trip. John was well organised and efficient and gave us all the details we needed about what to expect when we arrived. I made the booking with Peter and he answered all of my questions, he very helpful along the way and he made the process very easy. We had an excellent experience, thank you Peter and John! We would like to book another tour with Auckland & Beyond in the near future.

Great visit to Middle Earth

Always wanted to visit Hobbiton (The Shire) since being a kid and the best way to see it was through Auckland & Beyond Tours! I want to thank John for being the best host to and from Auckland. Great guy all around, thanks mate! We managed to stop at cafes before and after the tour which was great as well.

Great day!
Feb 2020 • Solo
Had a great trip with our guide, Chris! He picked me up promptly from my hotel. We had a smooth ride with New Zealand facts along the way. I was skeptical of how Hobbiton would be and yes, it’s pretty touristy. But if you can get over the hoards of strangers jostling for pictures, the landscape is idyllic and magical. I’d definitely take the tour again and recommend for anyone who’s a Hobbit or LOTR fan. Thanks, Chris! Kia Ora!

To the Hobbiton and beyond
A splendid morning through scenic NZ nature and charming Hobbiton. Chris was our guide on the way to the movie set and he seized every occasion to share his contagious energy. The kind of sweet soul that spreads joy in the little space of a bus - ALSO, he has a fantastic eye for photography and generously offered to capture beautiful photos without ever being asked.
