    What to Expect
    The Hobbiton movie set is where Peter Jackson filmed his famous Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit film trilogies.  
    Tour will begin by picking you up from any hotel in central Auckland, enjoy a two-hour scenic drive through south Auckland and into Waikato with a scenic stop and time to take some amazing photos and any other stops if needed.
    Upon arrival, you will spend 30-45 minutes shopping in the official Hobbiton gift shop and grabbing a drink or a bite in the famous Shire's rest cafe.
    You then start your two-hour guided tour through 1,250 acres of sheep farm with amazing views of the Kaimai Ranges. Your guide will then take you through the twelve-acre site to see Hobbit Holes, The Mill, The Double Arched Bridge and have a complimentary drink at The Green Dragon Inn.
    After you finish your amazing Hobbit trip you start your way through the scenic roads of Waikato for your transfer back to Auckland.
    Please choose if you wish to get the transport only option or transport and entry ticket option.
