From Tauranga: 'Hobbiton Movie Set' Cruise Ship Tour

PRIVATE TOUR: Leaving Tauranga Port we cross the Kiamai ranges and head inland to Hobbiton passing lush dairy farmland and racehorse studs … New Zealand hinterland at its best. On arrival at Hobbiton, we are met by our guide at the Shire’s Rest cafe and board the Hobbit Bus for the short drive through the 1,250-acre sheep farm to the movie set for a two hour escorted tour around the12 acre site. Our local guide explains the history of the site as you wander along the rambling paths of The Shire past Hobbit Holes, The Mill, and into the world-famous Green Dragon Inn where you can sample specially brewed beverages. The tour completed, its time for lunch at the Shire’s Rest Cafe. We finish the tour at Mount Maunganui (Tauranga Port) with a drive downtown past millionaire homes, the white sandy Pacific coast surf beach (regarded as New Zealand’s best) before returning you to your awaiting ship:PRIVATE TOUR: MAX 8 PEOPLEENTRY FEE (adult $84 / youth 9-6 $42 / child 0-8 free)
