Trip Planner: South Pacific / New Zealand / North Island / Waikato Region / Hinuera / Hobbiton Movie Set
Revisit Middle Earth at Hobbiton Movie Set, used extensively in both "The Lord of the Rings" and "The Hobbit" film series. As your guide takes you around the Shire, you'll discover just how filmmaker Peter Jackson made his movie magic here. The journey across the 4.8 hectare (12 acre) set includes stops at Hobbit holes, the Mill, and the Dragon Inn, where you'll be able to enjoy a special beverage. Located in a scenic setting with the picturesque Kaimai Range in the distance, this attraction isn't just for die-hard Tolkien or movie fans. You can also arrange for a farmstay package, or organize a daytime, nighttime, or wedding function on site. Book your guided tour in advance, and explore the website for details about farmstays, functions, and events. Take the guesswork out of planning a Hinuera vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

I love movies, I mean how doesn't? And I've been on several movie and show tours, and this one ranks right up there on the top of my list if the best. I had my whole family with me which includes three kids under 5 and they all had so much fun. They loved seeing all the Hobbit homes and there's a couple place where the can touch some small Hobbit sized things like an old fashioned wood working area and such. The behind the scenes info that you learn will feed the need for knowledge for any fan of the movies and books. Even if you never seen or read the books you will have fun. I would highly recommend this to anyone.
Great place to visit. Very entertaining. We had a great time. Our amazing guide Eli told us lots of interesting facts about hobbiton and made sure we all had time to take pictures we wanted. The tour finished in the green dragon inn where you get a free drink after walking around the set. Fantastic experience.
