Attraction details
Owner description: The Hobbiton Movie Set tour is an essential stop on the itinerary for all visitors travelling through New Zealand, offering an interesting and entertaining experience incorporating the famous film set as seen in The Lord of The Rings and The Hobbit trilogies. Fall in love with the Alexander family sheep and beef farm, just as acclaimed director Sir Peter Jackson did, as you journey through the village, with the mighty Kaimai Ranges towering in the distance. Your guide will then escort you around the set, showing you the intricate detailing, pointing out the most famous locations and explaining how the movie magic was made. You will be taken around the 12 acre set; past Hobbit holes, the Mill and into the famous Green Dragon™ Inn, where you can indulge in our exclusive, specially brewed beverages to conclude your own Middle-earth™ adventure.

We were picked up from our hotel in Auckland and although a long drive it was very worthwhile.
Hobbiton is fabulous - exactly as you would imagine it to be.
Caves were interesting and the final boat trip is a little different.

Kim was our tour guide and she was wonderful, very accommodating my wife and I had a 2 year old with us and she was very tried so that meant she was whingeing most of the tour, but Kim balanced out the group and included us in the same time. This rated very well with me plus the place is amazing specially if you are a lord of the rings fan.

We were not all huge lord of the rings fans but it was one of the highlights of our trip. Very well organised and informative regarding the movies and how they were made. We drove down for the day from Auckland. If you are planning to do other sightseeing further south suggest you try to do the tour later in the afternoon after 3.30 or mid morning around 10. We were rushing to get there! Great photo opportunities and no rush as long as the tour group keep moving with the guide. We all had a lovely walk through the set and finished with a drink at the green dragon tavern.
