This small group tour is an easy day trip from Auckland to Hobbiton movie set. The day includes a fully guided tour of the set as seen in ‘The Lord of the Rings’ and ‘The Hobbit’ trilogy. You get to explore the inside of a Hobbit Home (new from Dec 1st) and we also have a sumptuous lunchtime buffet in the Party Marquee next to the Green Dragon Inn.
Our experienced guides look after you all day from pick up to drop off from your Auckland City accommodation. They include a full commentary on the way to Hobbiton with insights into the beautiful farmland 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 café in case you want to buy some local baking or a coffee (or as we like to call it a ‘second breakfast’).
At Hobbiton you travel down to the movie set and have one of the specialist Hobbiton guides take you on a walking tour around the 44 Hobbit holes.
A highlight of the tour is the (New from 1st December) opportunity to go inside a Hobbit home. This interactive part of the tour gives you the chance to explore inside a Hobbit home! For example – try out a hobbit sized bed, sit at the dining table and check out the amazing detail that has gone into this creation.
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. Before your feast in the Party Marquee (which is included in the price) 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 lunch in the Party Marquee we’ll give you a $10 souvenir voucher to spend at the Hobbiton gift shop before we head back to Auckland, arriving back mid-afternoon before the traffic builds up.
