Upon arrival, you will spend 30-45 minutes shopping in the official Hobbiton gift shop and grabbing a drink or a bite in the famous Shire's rest cafe.

You then start your two-hour guided tour through 1,250 acres of sheep farm with amazing views of the Kaimai Ranges. Your guide will then take you through the twelve-acre site to see Hobbit Holes, The Mill, The Double Arched Bridge and have a complimentary drink at The Green Dragon Inn.

After you finish your amazing Hobbit trip you start your way through the scenic roads of Waikato for your transfer back to Auckland.

Great tour from Paul

Our tour guide did a good job telling the 8 people in the van all about New Zealand on our ride to and from Hobbiton. I definitely preferred this tour of very the big coach tour I did the next day.

Yes, I did. Email them, if they don't have a tour going with space you may need to waitlist. They're super friendly and helpful and I had no trouble securing a spot as a solo traveler
