    Nice scenery, well-maintained place and good guide. Tasty complimentary beers at the end of the tour. Although you’re not a big fan of The Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit, it worths visiting if you have enough time on North Island.

What To Expect

This should be at the top of the list for any fan of The Hobbit or The Lord of the Rings trilogy films! It is a mind-blowing experience as you are transported into Middle Earth and onto the actual set used to film these movies. Together with your movie buff guide and fellow passengers, you'll endeavor on a two hour adventure starting with a drive across 1,250 acres of sheep farm land. Your guide will also share with you how the farm land was transformed into a movie set as you visit the Hobbit Holes, The Mill, and the double-arched bridge, along with other structures used for the films. You'll also get to enjoy a refreshing complimentary beverage at The Green Dragon Inn. If you have any other bugging questions about the film set, make sure to ask your knowledgeable guide!

  • Serene Li Tzan 17 Jan 2019
    Overall experience was smooth and easy. However, I think the timing should be removed if it’s fully booked. Two friends of mine booked to join the same time as me but was given to choose to other timing instead.

  • Anna 1 Jan 2019
    I am not a huge fan, have seen the movies but not read the books. Despite that, I really enjoyed this tour. We were very lucky with the weather and although it was peak season the tour was arranged in such a way that didn’t make it feel too crowded.

  • Ka Kee Maggie 28 Dec 2018
    It's such a nice scenic place for photos. Duncan our tour guide was awesome, helped us take pictures and he is very knowledgeable about the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit. The Ginger Beer was so good, a must try!
