Be the first of the day to step into the lush pastures of the Shire with an early-bird departure at 6:00 AM. Discover the fantastical movie set that framed the Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies on a fun day tour from Auckland. Climb aboard a comfortable air-conditioned bus and depart Auckland before the crowds. Sit back and nap en route to Matamata. Enjoy a breakfast stop where you have 20 minutes to grab some food and use the restroom before continuing. Admire the rolling hills of the Waikato region as your experienced bus driver shares their local knowledge with you. At the Shire’s Rest, step into the only set that remains intact from the famous movie trilogies. As the first people on set for the day, you have the opportunity for uninterrupted photos without crowds of people. Wander through the rambling paths of the 12-acre set with your guide who will explain how the movie magic was made. See the Hobbit holes of Bilbo and Frodo and savor a specially-brewed drink at the Green Dragon Inn. There will be time to browse the souvenir shop before the return journey to Auckland where you will arrive around 2:30 PM.
