For fans of the Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit films, visiting the official Hobbiton Movie Set is a truly unforgettable experience. On this tour, enjoy comfortable round-trip transport from Auckland and extra attention from your guide thanks to the small group size. On arrival, explore the famous film set on a guided tour, hear behind-the-scenes stories about the making of the movies, and see the Hobbit Holes, The Mill, and the Double Arched bridge. There will also be free time to shop for souvenirs or purchase lunch at the Shire’s Rest Café.
What to Expect
The Hobbiton movie set is where Peter Jackson filmed his famous Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit film trilogies.  

Tour will begin by picking you up from any hotel in central Auckland, enjoy a two-hour scenic drive through south Auckland and into Waikato with a scenic stop and time to take some amazing photos and any other stops if needed.

Upon arrival, you will spend 30-45 minutes shopping in the official Hobbiton gift shop and grabbing a drink or a bite in the famous Shire's rest cafe.

You then start your two-hour guided tour through 1,250 acres of sheep farm with amazing views of the Kaimai Ranges. Your guide will then take you through the twelve-acre site to see Hobbit Holes, The Mill, The Double Arched Bridge and have a complimentary drink at The Green Dragon Inn.

After you finish your amazing Hobbit trip you start your way through the scenic roads of Waikato for your transfer back to Auckland.

Please choose if you wish to get the transport only option or transport and entry ticket option.

Yes, I did. Email them, if they don't have a tour going with space you may need to waitlist. They're super friendly and helpful and I had no trouble securing a spot as a solo traveler
