Full description
This hugely popular tour provides private transport to and from the Hobbiton movie set at a time convenient to you but as with luxury travel it also gives you options to suit your interests. On arrival at the famous Hobbiton movie set, you will go a general tour of the Hobbiton movie set itself. You get to call the ‘action’ shots as they would say in the movies!

On the way to Middle-Earth, drive through prime New Zealand countryside with its rolling hills and fertile pastures. The route takes you through a string of small, historic river towns and offers beautiful views onto the sacred Taupiri Mountain and Ngaruawahia, site of the famous Turangawaewae Marae (Maori meeting place) and seat of Aotearoa’s (New Zealand's) Maori King. Your destination of Matamata, commonly known as ‘Hobbiton Movie Set’ since its inception as the original setting of Peter Jackson’s world-famous “The Lord of the Rings” and “The Hobbit”- trilogies, lies in an idyllic landscape with sheep farms and wonderful views towards the Kaimai Ranges in the east. During the 2-hour tour of the Hobbiton movie set (with other visitors), you will learn all about how this location was chosen (which is a great story in itself!), how it was created and which scenes were filmed here.
