Escape into the enchanting world of JRR Tolkien’s imagination on a shore excursion to the Hobbiton Movie Set. Intricately recreated after being used as a film set for both the Lord of The Rings and The Hobbit trilogies, this tour will take you to another world set deep in New Zealand countryside.

Whether you have read the books, seen the movies, or neither at all – this is a day you won’t forget. Expert and enthusiastic guides will set the scene as you leave the Bay of Plenty region and climb over the Kaimai Ranges. Admire the amazing scenery of the Waikato region before arriving at The Shires Rest visitors centre where your Hobbiton experience begins. Stand under the party tree, walk past the Hobbit holes, and learn some fascinating stories and facts regarding both the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit films – all with plenty of great photo opportunities! After exploring Hobbiton with your guide, enjoy a complimentary drink at the Green Dragon Inn before leaving Hobbiton heading back to Tauranga where you will reunite with your cruise ship.
