Description

Step into the world of Middle-earth, the Shire, and Hobbiton as you head to the film set where acclaimed director Peter Jackson brought J.R.R. Tolkien's beloved books to life. Find out how this once-sleepy sheep farm was turned into a film set and take an up-close look at real sets and props.

Enjoy a convenient ride from Matamata and head out to the Alexander sheep farm, where Hobbiton was recreated in the pasture's green rolling hills. Spend some time popping into the homes of Bilbo and Frodo, snap photos of the delightfully round doors that lead into underground hobbit homes, and pop into the Green Dragon for a refreshing pint you could only find in the Shire.

Learn how this 12-acre (4.9-ha) piece of land was transformed for the film, consider swinging by the on-site souvenir shop to pick up a precious of your own, and then catch a ride back to Matamata in the afternoon.

We were picked up at Matamata I-site and on time. Driver was pleasant. The guide Mike was very funny and knowledgeable about the set, the movie and everything Hobbiton. The set was everything we envisioned and more and we re so glad we booked the tour. A must to see when you are around this area. and as Gandolf said "yea shall not pass" on this opportunity to see all the scenes from all the excellent films we have grown to love. A MUST!!

A great trip, loved everything about it, very professionable. Would recommend to anyone from someone who is not even a hobbit fan. Totally worthwhile a visit.

I loved it. Pick up was great and the tour around Hobbiton too. You get a lot of information about the filming and how Peter Jackson found this beautiful place. I mean it's a lot of money, but definitely worth it. Booking via Expedia is so easy and so far everything went well, definitely one of my main websites where I look for some good deals.
