Description

Step into the world of Middle-earth, the Shire, and Hobbiton as you head to the movie 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 movie set and take an up-close look at real sets and props.

Enjoy a convenient ride from Rotorua 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 movie, consider swinging by the onsite souvenir shop to pick up a precious of your own, and then catch a ride back to Rotorua in the afternoon.

I loved it so much, but stops at the Shire’s Rest gift shop and the final gift shop before leaving were incredibly short. If there were more people on the tour, I’d be unsure if I would have enough time to shop.

Entertaining. The tour guide was friendly, approachable and knowledgeable. Mix up with Expedia putting the wrong address in where to meet, but was able to overcome.
