Overview

Experience the real Middle-earth™ at the Hobbiton™ Movie Set, where, in the heart of the Waikato region, you can step into the lush pastures of the Shire™, as seen in The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies.

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. Your guide will escort you around the set, showing the intricate detailing, pointing out the most famous locations and explaining how the movie magic was made. You will be fully-guided around the 12-acre set: past Hobbit Holes™, the Mill and into the world-famous Green Dragon™ Inn where you will be presented with a complimentary, exclusive Hobbit™ Southfarthing™ beverage to conclude your own Middle-earth™ adventure.

Amazing for anyone of all ages but especially lord of the rings fans. Busy place but staff very efficient. The beer at the end of the tour tops it off perfectly.

What a wonderful tour!!. The guide was professional, friendly and helpful. Our tour was on 12p.m. and the weather was sunny so great for walking. The views of greeny areas and Hobbits were amazing. Also ginger beer was tasty. Highly recommend it.

Worth every cent we paid for this tour, staff and value for money exceptional!!! I would recommend this tour to anyone, I had an 8 year old and my elderly parents with me that have never seen the movies and every one of us enjoyed it immensely. Thank you for an amazing experience, we were the first group so we had the shire to ourselves for most of the tour.
