Hallo, we are keen to go for a Hobbition movie set tour, and wondering whether the pick up can be arranged from St. Martins Waldorf Apartment Hotel (6-12 St. Martns Lane, Auckland)? Also just to confirm the tour would be only Hobbiton set, no glowworm cave, etc. (since we have already done that). Many thanks.
