Quick view


Our experienced guides look after you all day from pick up to drop off at your inner Auckland City accommodation. Enjoy full commentary on the way with insights into the areas you are travelling through and background to both Hobbiton and Waitomo caves.

Hillside Hobbit Homes at the Hobbiton Movie Set
The Hobbiton Movie Set in the lush countryside setting of Matamata in the Hamilton – Waikato region of New Zealand is one of the country’s most-loved Middle-earth attractions.

Our first stop is at Hobbiton where we will drive you down to the set itself and have one of the specialist Hobbiton guides take you on a walking tour around the 44 Hobbit holes. You will get the chance to have a photo in the doorway of a Hobbit house, see the Party Tree and stand by the gate to Bilbo’s house ‘Bag End’ overlooking the whole set to the hills in the distance.
