One day tour from Auckland to the famous and magical Lord of The Rings Hobbiton Movie Set, in the Heart of Middle Earth.

On this tour you will be picked up from the hotel in our comfortable 12seater minibus and driven through the stunning Waikato countryside, the most extensive farming area in the world, on a fully guided journey to Hobbiton. During the trip south you will encounter stunning scenery, great photo opportunities, beautiful mountains and several different farm animals along the way.

After our drive we will arrive at the Alexander family sheep farm and Shire's Rest, the entrance to Hobbiton, where you can see thousands of sheep, grab a bite to eat, get your coffee fix or enjoy an ice cream while we collect your tickets to the movie set.

Next you will board one of the big green Hobbiton buses to depart on your 2 hour fully guided tour of the amazing 12-acre movie set. Step into the lush pastures of the Shire, visit 44 hobbit holes see amazing gardens, hear the secrets and stories about the making of the movies and finishing your experience at the famous Hobbiton pub The Green Dragon Inn for a cold pint, cider or ginger beer. On your tour you will be guided by a professional Hobbiton guide to ensure you get the most out of your experience. Fall in love with the Alexander family sheep farm, just as acclaimed director Sir Peter Jackson did, as you journey through the unequivocal beauty of the land, with the mighty Kaimai Ranges towering in the distance.

After the tour you will be guided back through the Alexander family sheep farm for another stop at Shire's Rest for some souvenir shopping before we begin our journey back to Auckland.

Spectacular experience!

We - a group of seven people plus our tour guide Kreig - had gone to Hobbiton last April 10, and despite the rainy weather, I have no regrets. Definitely worth the price because the whole experience, from pick up to drop off, was very personalised. Kreig, our tour guide, was a very enthusiastic, friendly and approachable guy who shared a lot of his knowledge. There were some snacks, refreshments and entertainment in the van that we used. Hobbiton itself looked spectacular whatever weather it is, I assure you. Glad we didn’t cancel our bookings at the last minute. Totally recommend Cheeky Kiwi Travel And its team! Thanks for the experience, you guys!

Miss

It was an amazing middle earth experience with my special someone. From the van trip to the actual Hobbiton movie set. Definitely a must go/do if you are a fan of the LOTR & Hobbiton trilogies. Well guided tour and staff were all friendly. Great for photographs and lovely drink in the Green Dragon Inn.

nice but quite expensive

It's cool to see the movie set. However for the scenery, I think there are many beautiful spots in NZ better than this place. And it's the most expensive tour we joined in NZ.
