Hobbiton Movie Set Tour - Full Day Express Trip from Auckland

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. ...Emma B., New Zealand – See more reviews

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.
