What to Expect
Travel reference:

See the magical Waitomo Caves and the Hobbiton Movie Set on this action-packed full-day tour.

Setting off from Auckland, you'll travel by luxury coach through the lush farmland of the Waikato and King Country regions. Your driver guide will entertain you with informative commentary along the way.

Once at the famous Hobbiton Movie Set, you'll join a guided tour of this former sheep farm. Here, the village of Hobbiton was carefully created in amazing detail as a film location for the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit movie trilogies. During your guided tour you'll see Hobbit Holes, The Mill and the Green Dragon Inn, and learn how farmland was transformed into a living, breathing piece of Middle-earth. After exploring Hobbiton, tuck into a delicious lunch at the Green Dragon Inn.

At the world-famous Waitomo Glowworm Caves, enjoy a guided tour through the impressive underground caverns. Your tour includes a boat ride through the Glowworm Grotto - glide silently along an underground river as you gaze at the twinkling glowworms overhead. After visiting Waitomo and Hobbiton, continue to Rotorua, arriving in the early evening.
