Hobbiton Movie Set Tour in New Zealand

New Zealand is definitely the country to visit for fans of The Hobbit or The Lord of the Rings trilogy, and movie fans in particular will love the latest tourist offering related to the movie. The Hobbit will be launched on the big-screen in December, but before then travellers can visit The Hobbiton Movie Set Tour which opened to the public this week. The Hobbiton movie set is just one of the many locations from the Lord of the Rings which are available as tourist experiences, but seeing the quaint village that is the home of the Hobbits of the trilogy is one of the most picturesque to see. Peter Jackson chose the spot himself after seeing aerial shots of the Matamata area, describing it as perfect for Hobbiton. New Zealand is famed for its beautiful scenery and the Matamata area is just one of the beautiful locations people touring New Zealand can visit. If you want to explore the beauty of the country, our New Zealand tours are perfect for seeing the sights in luxurious comfort. Image credit: tara hunt (commons.wikimedia.org)
