A most wonderful place. It’s an easy day trip from Auckland to Hobbiton. Fully recommend using a tour company if you’re staying in Auckland – we were able to visit three different locations in a single day with FlexTours. Check Viator for tours.
Hobbiton is way bigger than I expected. There are around 40 hobbit holes. And the details are incredible. Even if you’re not a fan of the movies, it’s an amazing place to visit. And your tour includes a drink in the Green Dragon!
