Take off from downtown heliport for close up views of Auckland City and over the Bombay Hills for panoramic views of Waikato farmland and river and the Kaimai Mountains. Land at the Shires Rest to meet your guide for a 2.5 hour tour of the Hobbiton Movie set including venturing 'Beyond the Door' and be welcomed into a new Hobbit home in Bagshot Row. Continue through the Movie set and see Hobbit Holes, Gardens, Party Tree and Mill. Arrive at the Green Dragon Inn for one cold ale, cider, or ginger ale. Flexible times and 5-6 hours away make this ideal for cruise ship passengers. Waitomo Glowworm cave extension can be added. Return to the main city heliport and transfer back to hotel or ship. Buffet lunch can sometimes be added.
