  • Tip for your guide


Join us on this intimate tour as we travel across the Shire from the Lord of the Rings. Listen to your guide tell you filming secrets behind the movie, like how did they make Gandalf look so big? See if you can spot any Hobbits peeking out of the windows and make sure you get a selfie in front of the famous green door.


After all of that exploring it's time to recharge your batteries, so grab a glass of Hobbit cider from the Green Dragon Inn and don't forget to pinch yourself because you're in the Shire


On our return to Auckland will take you through some of New Zealand's most beautiful countryside, including the majestic Waikato River (longest river in New Zealand), Ngaruawahia (home of the Maori King) and Taupiri (a sacred Maori burial ground).


All that's left to do is watch the trilogy!
