Overview

A truly unforgettable journey into Middle Earth and a delightful banquet dinner at the fabled Green Dragon Inn inside the Hobbiton Movie Set!

Enjoy a luxury ride in one of our private luxury Mercedes vehicles as we take you on a tour to the widely acclaimed Hobbiton Movie Set surrounded by the rich farmlands of Matamata right in the middle of New Zealand’s Waikato region of North Island. 

Depending on your Hobbiton Evening Banquet Tour sitting time, we leave Auckland sometime in the afternoon and make our way south on a 2-hour drive into the heart of New Zealand’s Waikato Region and King Country. The lush countryside and idyllic landscape of the area provided backdrop for many scenes of Peter Jackson’s ‘The Lord of the Rings’ and ‘The Hobbit’ trilogies. 

Taking into account the Hobbiton Evening Banquet Tour times, we arrange for you to arrive at dusk in time for the guided evening tour of the Shire. Your guide at the Hobbiton Movie Set will then walk you through the 12-acre site, giving informative commentary on how the site was conceived and designed. Cap off this tour with an immersive dining experience at the Green Dragon Inn before a banquet feast fit for a Hobbit. Then wash it all down with complimentary beverage exclusively crafted from the Hobbit South Farthing range.

The evening concludes by rejoining your guide for a walk through the meandering paths of the Shire illuminated by path lighting and handheld lanterns. This magical journey under moonlight passes through the village softly lit by the smoking chimneys of Hobbit holes and the mesmerizing glow of lanterns against the dark.
