This is an easy day trip from Auckland to the Hobbiton movie set and back again. The day includes a fully guided tour of the set as seen in ‘The Lord of the Rings’ and ‘The Hobbit’ trilogy and also includes a drink in the Green Dragon Inn.
Our experienced guides look after you all day from pick up to drop off in Auckland City Centre. They will talk on the way down giving insights into the areas you are travelling through and background to the movie set you are visiting. On the way down to Hobbiton there is a brief stop at a local cafe in case you want to buy some local baking or a coffee (or as we like to call it a ‘second breakfast’)
When we get to Hobbiton you will have some time to check out the shop and grab a bite to eat before joining the tour down to the movie set.
Your Hobbiton tour guide will take you down to the movie set where they take you on a walking tour around the 44 Hobbit holes. You will get the chance to have a photo in the doorway of a Hobbit house, see the Party Tree and stand by the gate to Bilbo’s house ‘Bag End’ overlooking the whole set to the hills in the distance. You cross the bridge by the mill to go into the Green Dragon Inn where you can enjoy a complimentary ale, cider or ginger beer.
After you leave the Green Dragon you finish off your tour and join your Bush and Beach guide to head back to Auckland – arriving late afternoon before the traffic builds up.
Bush and Beach have been running tours from Auckland to Hobbiton movie set for over 8 years and work closely with Hobbiton to make sure you get the most out of your time there.
If you are interested in the people who make the beer for the Green Dragon then you could always go on our Hobbiton and Hops tour which visits the Good George Brewery after the Hobbiton tour.
Note – a minimum of 2 people are required for this tour to run.
