Our experience from arriving to departing was awesome. The ladies in the souvenir shop (offered to get us on an earlier tour if we were interested, and we were) the facilities (toilets) both at the shire’s rest and the green dragon were amazingly clean and well taken care of. Our tour guide, Kevin, was humorous and informative. Patient as well taking pics for everyone along the way. Perfect service at the bar also. The gentleman at the green dragon (sorry, I missed his name) was also great to be around. Funny little story about how the pie came to be which I enjoyed. Friendly and polite. I have recommended to all my family and friends as well as put a big status on fb about it. Keep up the great work. We will be back!

The absolute BEST day, couldn’t have wished for a better experience. The details are impeccable, the landscapes just stunning. Our guide was full of wonderful facts and movie insights, and made the day so enjoyable. It would have been easy to spend another 30mins looking around, but the 2 hours is good, and held the interest of my 5 year old the whole time. Impressed that the food available didn’t cost an arm and a leg as it does at some attractions, and nice to have a free ale at the Green Dragon as part of the tour. An absolutely wonderful day, highly recommend to all, we have come away even bigger LOTR fans than ever before. Thank you!!

It was a wonderful experience, very knowledgable guide. Was a very hot day, but still enjoyed it. The ale was beautiful, just what i needed. It was rather expensive though at $89. For a family that would be just too much. It was worth going too. I had not seen any of the hobbit movies, but still enjoyed it.

Tour group not too big. Awesome to set the film settings. The Green Dragon Inn served excellent beer and ginger beer. Souvenirs snapped up. A happy day. Worth the drive and money.

Wonderful experience. Great property. Would be nice if we took it a bot slower so you could enjoy the scenery and views better. The time at the green dragon in is notobg enough.
