This 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 and we also include a sumptuous lunchtime feast in the Party Marquee.
Our experienced guide will look after you all day from pick up to drop off at your Auckland City Accommodation. They include a full commentary on the way with 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’)
At Hobbiton you join a tour and have one of the specialist Hobbiton guides 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 hole, 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 lunch feast in the Party Marquee (which is included in the price), you cross the bridge by the Mill to visit the Green Dragon Inn, where you can enjoy a complimentary ale, cider or ginger beer.
After lunch we’ll give you a $10 souvenir voucher to spend at the Hobbiton gift shop before we head back to your accommodation in Auckland, arriving back mid-afternoon before the traffic builds up. This itinerary is based on a 7am departure from Auckland for a quieter tour at Hobbiton, however a later departure is possible.
Bush and Beach have been running tours from Auckland to Hobbiton movie set for over 5 years and work closely with Hobbiton to make sure you get the most out of your time at Hobbiton.
“What a treat to travel to Hobbiton with Bush and Beach! It was an easy, fun trip with some nice extra perks that the other companies don’t seem to have.” – Trip Advisor review 2018
