On location at Hobbiton with a private guide


New Tour - Hobbiton Movie Set is situated in one of New Zealand's most beautiful rural areas. Hobbiton is located on a private farm which adds to the magic and beauty of this specially built movie set.
Following the filming of Lord of the Rings the movie set was dismantled leaving only a few holes and the remains of the gardens. With the filming of The Hobbit it was agreed to build a permanent Hobbiton village and this is what you see today - 44 Hobbit houses, gardens and pathways, trees, lakes, the Green Dragon, the Water Mill and the double arched bridge. You will see Bilbo's house, learn the tricks of movie making, and hear beautiful stories of Gandalf, Frodo and more from your expert Hobbiton guide.
Even if you have not seen the movies you will love Hobbiton and the surrounding area.
Your group is restricted to 4 people and includes private tour of Hobbiton and Banquet lunch in the marquee after your tour.
Evening Hobbiton tours are possible with the Hobbit Banquet so please message me about this.

Itinerary

Four of you and your Hobbiton guide will make for a special personal look at this popular attraction.
A two and a half hour drive through beautiful landscape will see us arrive at the Shire's Rest. Travel through farmland and as we get closer you will understand exactly why Sir Peter Jackson selected this location for Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies.
You will have your own guide for a 2 hour tour which takes you out onto a private farm to enjoy the Hobbiton Movie Set experience. After walking around more than 40 Hobbit houses, dancing under the Party Tree and taking thousands of photos you will have a chance to relax at the Green Dragon and enjoy a drink. Lunch is held in the marquee and is a proper Hobbit banquet.
After the tour we travel back to Auckland and continuing with sightseeing around Auckland city. Time allowing we will view the city from one of the many volcanoes, drive along the harbour and see the inner city sights.
A very special and private day out.
