Travel for two hours along a scenic road to reach Matamata, stopping en route at a cafe and a lookout point with great photo ops. Have time to purchase lunch in Matamata, which has an excellent bakery and other options.
In the afternoon, join your guided tour of Hobbiton, created at a farm that was transformed into sets for major scenes in the popular movies The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit.
Your Hobbiton tour lasts approximately two hours. Take photos in front of Bilbo Baggins’ hobbit hole home, and hear tales of the quest for the ring and Middle-earth that make the stories from JRR Tolkien's classic books come alive. Your tour includes a 15-minute stop in the Green Dragon Inn where you can enjoy a complimentary alcoholic or non-alcoholic drink.
After the tour, you can browse the souvenir shop at the information center before returning to Auckland on a different road, offering another perspective on New Zealand's gorgeous countryside.
Your tour ends in the early evening with drop off at your starting point in Auckland.
Fantastic tour! Great stops to get ice cream and lunch, beautiful scenes on the journey, and the driver was really nice and helpful. Would definitely recommend!
A rainy day in Hobbiton is better than good weather in most places!
A must for LOTR fans! Very fun to see all the different hobbit holes, and to hang out at the Green Dragon. I definitely recommend this.
The driver who took us to Hobbiton (Barry) was great and very knowledgeable. And the Hobbiton tour itself was awesome, whether or not you are a diehard fan of the Th Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit trilogies! We highly recommend!
Spectacular scenery even if you have not seen the movies.Well informed driver.Light rain did not spoil the great experience.
We had a great time on this tour! It definitely takes most of the day. We were picked up at 9:30 and dropped off at 7pm.
The driv there took about 2 hours with the stops. Our tour was in the afternoon around 1pm. It took around 2 hours and was amazing. The movie site is beautiful! It was cool to be standing in places you've seen in the movies.
Great day, really worth the long journey!
Great trip, long day though but worth it! Fun tours was exactly that as we had Joseph as our driver and guide and he was great fun and a lovely fellow.
Everything ran to time.
Hobbiton excellent and the cold drink at the green dragon inn was perfect to end the visit with as was the hokey pokey ice cream we got on the way home!
Bela experiência, um tour lúdico. Pontualidade e cordialidade. Altamente recomendado.
This tour was amazing!
