Know More about this tour

Begin with pickup from your accommodation/hotel in Rotorua and take a scenic drive to Hobbiton.

See Bilbo and Frodo's home and wander around the vegetable patches were Hobbits grow their food with giant pumpkins laying around. Learn about the movie secrets and the attention to detail that is truly mind-boggling. Your guide will explain anecdotes about New Zealand and how it compares to Tolkien's book. Learn interesting facts about the set; for example, how the fake oak tree on the hill was created 376,000 artificial leaves imported from Taiwan and wired onto the tree. When the leaves faded in the sun, someone was employed to repaint them, one by one.

Walk past the Mill and the famous Party Tree that were created for The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit films.

The tour concludes at The Green Dragon Inn with a complimentary beverage from the exclusive Hobbit Southfarthing range. The guests will then be moved through into The Green Dragon dining room and treated to a banquet feast fit for a Hobbit. The tables will be full of traditional Hobbit fayre and, as is the tradition in the Shire, second helpings are encouraged. The tables will be layered with a variety of meats, rice, pasta dishes, vegetables, salads, breads and much more.

To conclude this premium Hobbiton experience, after dinner the guests will re-join their guide to make their way back through the wandering paths of The Shire. The trails will be illuminated by path lighting and handheld lanterns will be distributed amongst the guests to help light the way. This stunning journey under moonlight will travel through the village breathtakingly lit up, with Hobbit Hole chimneys smoking and lanterns glowing in the darkness.

From here, make your way back to Rotorua, to your accommodation/hotel.
