Auckland - Glowworm Cave - Hobbiton - Auckland

Hop aboard one of the most popular tours in New Zealand! Today we'll discover the fascinating Waitomo Glowworm Caves and travel back to Middleearth with a tour of the Hobbiton Movie Set!

Departing from your hotel in Auckland we'll head out to our first stop: the famous Waitomo Glowworm Caves! Here we'll enjoy a tour of this amazing natural wonder and meet the thousands of little critters that turn these dark caverns into gorgeous turquoise tunnels! These unique creatures are only found in New Zealand and welcome you to explore their subterranean home. We'll also have free time here to explore on our own.

Then we'll head to one of the most famous sites in New Zealand: Hobbiton! Follow an expert guide as they lead you through this expansive and amazing village! We'll see all the great and memorable sties from the Shire, including the Green Dragon Inn and field where Bilbo's birthday party was held! Along the way they'll provide exclusive commentary about the films and set, as well as the interesting characters who've visited the set over the years. They will even help take photos of you besides the miniature homes and gardens.

Finish the tour at The Green Dragon, where you can enjoy a pint of Girdley Fine Grain, Oatbarton, Sackville cider, or Frogmorton Ginger Beer (own expense)!

We'll return to Auckland in the evening.

Hotel Pick-up will run from 6:15am to 6:45am.
We usually return around 7:45pm.

    Waitomo Cave / Hobbiton Movie Set.

    Waitomo Cave tour was amazing. Only disappointment was don't know for whatever reason we were not allowed to travel certain part. Instead the guide made us go for a bush walk. Too tiring didnt enjoy. Walking thru jungles felt wasn't safe. ... Hobbiton Movie set was very interesting. The guide was very nice and informative. Her explanation was very clear... Overall the tour was worth it.. Read full review
