Hobbiton Movie Set Tour

Day Tour

A fun filled tour to one of the most beautiful and famous movie sets in the world! Enter the world of the Lord of the Rings by visiting Hobbiton and explore the exceptionally crafted fantasy village.

  • Listen to the stories of Lord of the Rings from your guide
  • Buffet Lunch in the Party Marquee
  • Enjoy a refreshing drink at the Green Dragon Inn
  • View the scenic Mamuku Ranges with onboard commentary from Auckland
  • Step inside a Hobbit home


Let us take you on a magical journey through Middle-earth to the Hobbiton Movie Set from the Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit film trilogies for a fascinating guided tour.

Travel south from Auckland over the Bombay Hills to the rich farmland of the Waikato region. Your journey takes you through undulating green hills reminding you that you are approaching The Shire.

Your guide will give you commentary on the way to Hobbiton with insights into the areas you are travelling through, along with some background to the movies.

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 part of the set remaining in New Zealand.

You’ll 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 gate to Bilbo’s house, “Bag End”, looking out over the whole set to the hills in the distance. A true highlight will be the moment you step inside a reconstructed Hobbit home – this interactive part of the tour gives you the chance to appreciate the level of detail which goes into creating these sets.
The tour ends with a visit to the Green Dragon Inn for a drink.

After the tour your sumptuous feast is included at the Party Marquee before heading back to Auckland.
