Full Itinerary & Rates
A once-in-a lifetime experience in Middle Earth including a banquet dinner at the world-famous Green Dragon Inn inside the Hobbiton Movie Set!

Departing from Auckland in the afternoon and working in with tour times at the Hobbiton Movie Set, we take you in one of our luxury vehicles to the world-famous Hobbiton Movie Set near the country town of Matamata in the Waikato region of New Zealand’s North Island. Here many scenes from Peter Jackson’s "The Lord of the Rings” and “The Hobbit”- trilogies were filmed. On the 2 hour journey south, we drive through the beautiful and lush countryside of the Waikato region and King Country.

You will then have the unique chance to experience the Hobbiton Movie Set at dusk with a guided evening tour through the Shire. Your Hobbiton Movie Set guide escorts you through the 12 acre site, recounting fascinating details on how the movie set was created. The tour concludes at the Green Dragon Inn with a banquet feast fit for a Hobbit and beverages from the exclusive Hobbit South Farthing range. To conclude the evening you re-join the Hobbiton Movie Set guide to make your way back through the wandering paths of the Shire. The trails will be illuminated by path lighting and handheld lanterns. This stunning journey under moonlight will travel through the village breathtakingly lit up with Hobbit hole chimneys smoking and lanterns glowing against the darkness.
