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.

Completed this as "when in Rome" activity and it really was worth it! Enjoyed learning about the sets from our guide -who's name escapes me but she was brilliant - a student in psychology if i recall correctly. we were lucky to be in a small group but they do have a lot of tours per day so it can get pretty crowded. very little shade so do take water with you. Although a good half day out, it needn't be so expensive. Drove down from Hamilton - about 45mins away. Then carried on to the Waikato falls - also a very good trip if you're ok with a 45mins walk through a nature path.
