This involves a long 2 hour bus ride each way. But if you find the New Zealand countryside interesting as I do, then that is just a bonus. My wife is not a Hobbit fan, has not seen the movies, and still enjoyed the day - despite the 5:35 AM pickup. And if you enjoyed the movies, you will love the site. Our site guide was part of the reconstruction crew, and had lots of personal stories about the cast and Jackson, and about the creation of the current site and some filming tricks. Have the dark ale at the Green Dragon if you like beer. Some in our group complained that the group was too large, and they had trouble hearing the guide. The paths are narrow, and this could be an issue, but there are collection areas where the guides stop, so if you keep up it should be OK. Overall, this was one of the highlights of our trip.
