Overview

Experience behind-the-scenes magic in this widely acclaimed private tour that will bring you to and from the Hobbiton Movie Set on board a private transport at a time and in a way that most suits your interests.

You will explore the Hobbiton Movie Set upon arrival by joining a general tour of the movie set itself. Fans of the ‘Lord of the Rings’ and ‘The Hobbit’ movie trilogies will surely be thrilled  getting inside views of the Hobbit village and learning fascinating facts on what went behind the scenes while enjoying a unique experience in this magical landscape. 

The drive to Middle Earth is nothing short of enchanting. We make our way past lush New Zealand countryside known for its rich pastures and gently rolling hills as we drive through a series of small river towns filled with charm and history, enjoying amazing views of the revered mountain, Taupiri, and Ngaruawahia, the seat of Aotearoa’s (New Zealand) Maori king and Turangawaewae Marae (Maori meeting place).

Popularly known as the Hobbiton Movie Set, Matamata – from the very beginning the original setting of Peter Jackson’s  world-renowned trilogies “The Lord of the Rings” and “The Hobbit “ – is surrounded by sheep farms in a pastoral setting, offering fantastic views to the east toward the rugged Kaimai Ranges.

In this 2-hour general tour (with other guests) of the Hobbiton Movie Set, you will learn the selection and creation process of Matamata as the Hobbiton Movie Set (which makes a fantastic tale in itself) and hear about which scenes were filmed on site. You will also get to explore some of the most familiar settings seen in the movies such as the Green Dragon Inn, the Hobbit Holes, the Mill, the Bag End, and the towering Party Tree. 

On Private Tours pick-up and drop-off locations can be at either from your designated accommodation, airport, cruise ship or other location. Please specify the location when booking.

When pick-up is from a designated meeting place including cruise ship terminal or airport, we would really appreciate receiving your mobile phone number with the booking. This helps us greatly to locate you just in case when we are not picking up directly from your accommodation.
