Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect

The Lord of the Rings Hobbiton Movie Set Tour from Auckland including Private Transfer

Hobbiton Movie Set

Your scenic drive by private vehicle from Auckland follows the route of the winding Waikato River as it twists through the verdant farmland of the Waikato region. After pickup from your hotel by a private driver, relax on the 2-hour journey to the Hobbiton Movie Set, where you’ll join up with a guided group tour.
On arrival near the rural town of Matamata — aka Hobbiton — meet your guide at The Shire's Rest cafe, where your Hobbiton Movie Set tour begins. Be enchanted by familiar scenes that dot the rustic farmland where Peter Jackson transformed Tolkien's vision to the screen with The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. Learn how the filming location was selected and how the movie sets were made as you meander past cozy hobbit holes tucked into the hillside of Bag End.
Your tour at Hobbiton lasts approximately 2 hours, during which you’ll visit the Mill, the party tree and the Green Dragon Inn, where you can order an included hot or cold beverage.
Enjoy lunch at The Shire's Rest cafe before the relaxing return trip to Auckland. Your private driver follows a different route so you can see multiple views of the bucolic countryside before drop-off at your city hotel.
