I really enjoyed this tour. The visit to the Hobbiton Movie Set was magical!! I felt like I had stepped into a real-life fantasy. One of my favorite part was the visit inside the hobbit house and drink at the green dragon. Also, our driver Grant was very knowledgeable and shared with us a lot of interesting information.
