Embark a full day magical journey through Middle Earth! Visit the Hobbiton movie set from the Lord of the Rings film trilogy and enjoy a delicious lunch at the Shire's Rest Cafe.

Enjoyed the interesting information given on tour and of course the Set itself despite the rain. The lunch was good though I should have checked for allergies but the staff responded well. The ride to and from Auckland was good and enjoyed the information given by the friendly and experienced driver. Nice to be with a small group as a result. Was grateful for breakfast and pit stop and ice cream stop and the chance to shop before the tour - there was no time afterwards. My 12 year old loved it too and wanted lots of photos even with himself in them.

Description

Embark on a full day magical journey through Middle Earth!

Travel south from Auckland over the Bombay Hills to the rich farmland of the Waikato region. You travel through the heritage town of Cambridge where tree-lined streets add to the English-style atmosphere. From here your journey takes you through undulating green hills reminding you that you are approaching Hobbiton Shire.

On arrival at Shire's Rest, you embark on your Hobbiton movie set tour. This location is the largest "green set" in the world and the only place where you get an emotional response to a movie set in a natural setting. You see 44 hobbit holes, the Mill and double arch bridge and the party tree. At this stunning location you can take a photo at the door of Bilbo's house, "Bag End", looking out over the whole set to the hills in the distance. The tour ends with a visit to the Green Dragon Inn for a drink.

After the tour, you take your lunch at Shire's Rest Café before heading back to Auckland, just in time before the traffic builds up on the Southern Motorway.

Azreena

It was pretty good. The lunch was great. Normally you get sandwich and the like. This was chicken pesto pasta, new potatos and ...salad. Awesome. The tour guide, Wayne was fantastic and so very knowledgeable. Tour was good, some great little tricks of the movie industry were learned. more

Oliver

The tour was very interesting. As important as the site visit to the Shire was the bus ride. The guide/driver (If I remember corr...ectly, it was Shaun) gave a very informative and knowledgeable commentary on the things and places we passed. He was excellent. more
