Let us take the hassle out of driving so you can sit back, relax and take in the views as we transport you from Auckland or Rotorua to Middle-earth!

No need to worry about us cancelling your booking due to low numbers - we guarantee departure for one full priced customer or two discounted customers!

Travelling along the scenic route from Auckland to Matamata we arrive at the Hobbiton movie set in time for you to purchase some lunch from the Shires Rest café if you wish.

You will then be taken on a guided tour over the 12-acre movie set as seen in The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies. You will visit hobbit holes, the Mill, Bag-End - home to Bilbo Baggins and finish off with a complimentary drink at the famous Green Dragon Inn.

Once your tour is complete we will transport you back to your Auckland accommodation around 6 or 7 pm depending on the traffic.

Loved it

Loved our tour from Auckland to Hobbiton and back! very safe, smooth and comfortable ride thanks to Andy, we just got to sit back and relax and enjoy the ride. Hobbiton itself was fantastic - so cool even though I am not a big fan of the book or movies themselves it is a must do in our own backyard

A wonderful day out, highly recommended.

The Flexitour bus picked me up and dropped me home which was great. The trip was relaxed and thoroughly enjoyable. Hobbiton was magic! Just the most wonderful time going around all the hobbit holes and hearing the history and how the place was set up. Our Hobbiton tour guide was great, he had a great sense of humour and used it to keep us amused and informed. This was a magical day, I'd love to do it all over again.

Definitely worth every penny

My partner and I joined the Hobbiton tour from Auckland and had an amazing time! Our driver Andy was very knowledgeable and willing to teach us all about NZ. Our tour guide Sonny at the Hobbiton was one of the best and so energetic - we were both super impressed! Thank you for an amazing day :)

100% worth every penny!

We had such a great day, super easy pick up and drop off from Auckland CBD. Comfortable shuttle and such a good driver. Can't recommend Vic enough! Knowledgeable and friendly. Hobbiton was beautiful, so worth the trip!
