During your tour trip into the lush pastures of the Shire, visit 44 hobbit holes, see amazing gardens, hear secrets and stories about the making of the movies and finish your LOTR experience with a cold beverage at the famous Hobbiton pub, The Green Dragon Inn.

My wife and I enjoyed the day trip very much. This is one of the best day trips we've had. The tour was fantastic and we had an amazing guide. He was informative, cheerful and witty. We would strongly recommend anyone who is keen on the tour.
