If you are a fan of the Hobbit or Lord of the Rings then no trip to New Zealand is complete without visiting the Hobbiton Movie Set. Join Bush and Beach to go ‘There and back again’. Our small group guided Hobbiton tours visit the outdoor set of 44 Hobbit holes built for the Hobbit movies. You get to stand by the gate of Bilbo’s house at Bag End as well as crossing the stone bridge by the Mill to go inside the Green Dragon Inn. You will have lots of time for photos around the set and learn from your guide about how the movies were made and get all the insider information about how the set was built and the stories behind scenes from the movies.

ALL of our Hobbiton tours include the interactive Explore inside a Hobbit home experience. Try out a Hobbit bed, sit at the Hobbit dining table, explore multiple rooms. A highlight of the tours.

Bush and Beach run at least one daily return tour to the Hobbiton Movie set from Auckland, including the option to add Waitomo glow worm caves to the tour.

ALL of our tours to Hobbiton include a great buffet lunch fit for a Hobbit inside the Party Marquee next to the Green Dragon Inn.
