This tour starts with a scenic drive out of the city and inland over the Kaimai ranges providing spectacular panoramic views across Waikato province.
On arrival your guide takes you on a 2-hour journey through "The Shire". You will hear the story of how the set was discovered and that Hobbiton is a living film set maintained by a team of gardeners. It is the only purpose-built film set in the world where the public can experience it as it was in the movies.
After a break we head back over the Kaimai range making a stop at McLaren Falls, 190 hectares of pastoral and horticultural land set alongside Lake McLaren. Our final stop is at Mossop's honey. There is an excellent live beehive display and information on Manuka honey products.
