Small-Group Tour from Rotorua to Auckland via Hobbiton Movie Set

Travel the short distance from Rotorua to Matamata, home of Hobbiton Movie Set.

Upon arriving at Hobbiton, meet your guide who takes you through this working sheep farm, a prime filming location for The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings movie series with incredible views overlooking the world’s biggest outdoor movie set.

Your tour group is smaller than the public tours with this tour option!

Fans will love exploring the Shire, home to hobbit holes including Bilbo Baggins’s house. Stop for photos in front of the Mill, the party tree and the double-arch bridge as you’re entertained with tales about the making of the films. Then head to the Green Dragon Inn for a complimentary cider, ale or ginger beer.

After your tour of Hobbiton, enjoy an included lunch at The Green Dragon marquee before your day trip ends with drop-off at your hotel in Auckland.
