Full description
Set off from Auckland at 9:30 AM aboard a modern, air-conditioned bus. Enjoy free Wi-Fi on the 2.5-hour journey to Matamata. On arrival, enjoy lunch (at own expense) at a local cafe before joining a Hobbiton-dedicated vehicle that will transport you to the set itself.

Discover the rolling hillsides, walkways, and hobbit holes from the movies. You'll be expertly guided as you stroll around the set. Stand in the doorway of a Hobbit hole and see where the hobbit Bilbo Baggins himself lived. Listen to your knowledgeable guide tell you interesting facts about how the movies were made.
