Small-Group Tour: The Lord of the Rings Hobbiton Movie Set Tour from Auckland
From $209.93
A visit to the Hobbiton Movie Set is a must for fans of the Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit films. This tour lets you venture even further into the mythical world of Middle Earth with a guided tour followed by a Hobbit-themed drink at the Green Dragon Inn, and lunch at the Green Dragon Marquee.
What to Expect
After early morning pickup from your Auckland hotel in an air-conditioned coach, set out on the scenic 2-hour journey to Hobbiton.

You’ll get a guided tour of the movie set, which has been preserved just as it was in the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit movies. See the farm on which the set was built, then venture into the Shire to discover the world of Middle Earth.

Listen as your guide tells you about the filming of the movies, recalls stories from the set, and points out real props seen on screen. See Bilbo Baggins’ home, the party tree, the bridge, and more. Afterward, stop at the Green Dragon Inn for a special Hobbiton-brewed cider, ale, or ginger beer, then eat a buffet lunch at the Green Dragon marquee.

Finally, you’ll be returned to your departure point in Auckland.

I had to contact the tour operator after booking the tour on Viator to find out the pickup point for us. It would probably be best if you contact them directly. The tour operator is Bush and Beach. You can check their... More

I was picked up in the Britomart area of Auckland which is walking distance to the cruise ship dock. I had to contact the tour operator directly to find out the pickup location. So the chances are pretty good that they... More
