When booking this 2-hour tour, you will have the option of choosing the general tour of the Hobbiton Movie Set, where you will join other visitors or the private tour, which will allow you to act as director for a few minutes. You'll even get to call "action", just like "in the movies"!
Lot's of cool information awaits, such as how this bucolic location, dotted with sheep farms, was chosen, how the sets were created and which scenes were filmed here. The inviting landscape makes you want to stay forever. You will thrill at the chance to see the Hobbit holes, The Green Dragon Inn (where Samwise Gamgee wooed Rosie Cotton) the Mill, the famous Party Tree where Gandolf set off fireworks at Bilbo's birthday party. And, I've saved the best for last. You will also visit Bag End, with its curious, yet irresistible round door with the door knob right in the middle. This charming place was the home of Bilbo Baggins, then Frodo Baggins and eventually, home of Samewise Gamgee, his wife Rosie and their little Hobbits.
You will arrive back in Auckland, dreaming of Hobbits and savoring the memories of the day.
