Day 1. Hobbiton
Not far from Rotorua, situated on the most picturesque private farmland, is the original film set for the LOTR trilogy and now again The Hobbit. It’s easy to see why these green pastures and rolling hills were chosen to portray Hobbiton and The Shire. On this tour the Rings Scenic Tours’ guides will fill you in on all the main points of the production including the history of how the site was chosen, and if you’ve seen the movies as often as this chap has then it really does bring the tour to life. Feel free to dress up and be part of the Hobbiton! This day is really an Unforgettable Journie
