    What to Expect
    Step foot into The Lord of the Rings movie set on a half-day Hobbiton tour, starting with hotel pickup in Rotorua. After a 45-minute drive through spectacular North Island scenery, arrive at the Hobbiton movie set, located in Matamata. Then follow in the imagined footsteps of your favorite characters as you explore this working New Zealand sheep farm.

    See where the movie series began as you snap photos in front of places used as hobbit holes in the film trilogy and The Hobbit series, such as Bilbo Baggins’ home.

    Your guide points out LOTR favorites, such as the party tree, the pond, the mill, and the Green Dragon Inn before your return to Rotorua.

    Please note: The Hobbiton movie set is still in use for an upcoming movie that’s in the process of being filmed. Because of this, you may be required to sign a confidentiality agreement to not publish any images that you take during your tour.

    I did the Hobbiton tour as part of a tour to the Waitomo Caves. However I was pleasantly surprised with how good the Hobbiton Tour was. It is very professionally run and not rushed. You have enough time to take it all in. The tour guide, Josh, was funny and entertaining (look

    What a wonderful place. 5 garden keepers taking care of all the little details with so much love and passion for the entire hobbiton experience. The guides came up with funny stories about the reconstruction and the actors. You shouldn't miss it.
