“I can’t fault the trip.”
- NSW, Australia Jan 2018 View Photo

I can’t fault the trip. It was my first time travelling alone and the travellers made me very welcome and included me. The accommodation was superb, except the first night at Wellington did not have an aircon. I managed with a fan but the coach driver didn’t even have a fan. It was a pity because the hotel was excellent otherwise with lovely food.

People do need to be aware that most of Hobbiton is uphill. There was a couple of people who struggled with the walk.
