Owner description: The Hobbiton Movie Set tour is an essential stop on the itinerary for all visitors travelling through New Zealand, offering an interesting and entertaining experience incorporating the famous film set as seen in The Lord of The Rings and The Hobbit trilogies. Fall in love with the Alexander family sheep and beef farm, just as acclaimed director Sir Peter Jackson did, as you journey through the village, with the mighty Kaimai Ranges towering in the distance. Your guide will then escort you around the set, showing you the intricate detailing, pointing out the most famous locations and explaining how the movie magic was made. You will be taken around the 12 acre set; past Hobbit holes, the Mill and into the famous Green Dragon™ Inn, where you can indulge in our exclusive, specially brewed beverages to conclude your own Middle-earth™ adventure.

Sure, it was really cool to visit The Shire, and fans of LOTR will enjoy the visit. But, based on how the visit was constructed, it didn’t live up to our expectations. There were a ton of tourists with groups leaving every 20 minutes. We had to walk a set route through the Shire with a guide — tons of standing and listening/waiting while our guide waited for the group ahead to move on. Would have preferred more freedom.
