Setting out from Rotorua, your Hobbiton Movie Set Tour starts with a scenic drive across to Matamata where your local driver guide will provide informative commentary and share stories about the region and its history.

Take a guided tour of Hobbiton Movie Set and learn how this picturesque farmland was transformed into a living, breathing piece of Middle-earth. Your guide will show you Hobbit holes, the Green Dragon Inn, the Party Tree, the Mill and many other structure from the movies. Then enjoy a tasty lunch at The Green Dragon Inn before making your way back to Rotorua.
