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.

I booked the Tour through Bush and Beach and was very glad I did. I would definitely recommend this company. It was a much smaller group than many of the other companies (about 1/2 the size of other) so the experience seemed more intimate. With about 20 people you also had more time to take photos and see the set up close. It also included a delicious buffet lunch and a coupon for the Hobbiton Gift Shop.
I would highly recommend booking the Hobbiton Movie Set Tour through Bush and Beach.
