What You Can Expect
Arrive in Hobbiton, where your movie set tour begins. Explore the magical world of ‘the Shire’ as your guide entertains you with stories about the making of The Lord of the Rings movie trilogy. See the hobbit holes, the mill and the double-arch bridge, the party tree and the Green Dragon Inn. Pose for pictures at the door of Bilbo Baggins’ house and see stunning views overlooking the largest ‘outdoor set’ in the world! Cross the double-arch bridge and enjoy a complimentary cider, ale or ginger beer inside the Green Dragon Inn.
After your tour of Hobbiton, enjoy lunch (included) at The Shire’s Rest Café before traveling back to Auckland.
My wife really wanted to do this tour so I went along expecting to be somewhat bored as I am not a big Hobbit fan, plus I wasn't looking forward to a long bus ride to the set and back….The day turned into a very pleasant surprise as the tour operator conducted a very informative narration during the drive through some most fantastic scenery….Hobbiton itself was extremely enjoyable as well with a great lunch/drink on site…I am a Pilot and I pride myself on my navigational skills, but trying to find Hobbiton on your own would be a challenge…I highly recommend this small group tour !!! I was so impressed with this tour that we signed up for the " Best of both Worlds" Auckland tour the next next….also Outstanding !!!
Very well organised and balanced day. Our driver was professional and his running commentary was most entertaining. We loved the stops en route, but what about one at the Matamata (Waimai) cheese factory? Hobbiton was fantastic. Drinks and lunch at the Green Dragon were brilliant. Our guide was great. Congratulations on providing a hot sunny day for us. Altogether an outstanding day out. Our guests from Australia and UK loved it as much as we did.
