It is awesome to have the opportunity to see the Hobbiton movie set in all its realism and glory. This re-enacts Tolkien, J. R. R books and Peter Jackson's movies back to life. The endless amount of work that has been put into the creation of the Hobbiton village is unsurpassed brilliance.
Magical place on such a lovely day. Lots of lovely hobbit holes and flowers. You need to keep up with your guide. I could have spent all day thereooking at all the detail and relaxing in the green dragon pub, rather than a couple of hours.
We thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Our guide was excellent. Made the experience even more interesting. Was great to be on the set where such good movies were made.
Met expectations. A beautifully clear blue sky, sun out and wandering up and down the hillside peeking into the hobbit world. A great escape from the real world.
We are elderly and not nearly as spritely as we once were! If we can manage, anyone (other than wheelchair or walking frame users) should be OK.
