Full Itinerary & Rates
On this best-selling private tour, you have the unique opportunity to experience one or two world-famous visitor attractions on a wonderful, personally guided one-day tour. On the way to Waitomo we pass through the beautiful countryside of the Waikato and King Country. Our experienced and knowledgeable local Host-Guides will tell you about New Zealand and its extraordinary places you’ll see along the approximately 2.5 hour journey from Auckland to the Waitomo Glowworm Caves.

As we drive southwards, we show you the sacred Taupiri Mountain as well as Ngaruawahia, the site of the famous Turangawaewae Marae (Maori meeting place) and seat of New Zealand's Maori King. At Waitomo, you will experience the world-famous Glowworm Caves on a 45-minute tour, which includes a boat ride on an underground stream to view the magically dazzling Glowworms.

We continue on to the Hobbiton Movie Set near the rural town of Matamata, made world-famous as the original setting of Peter Jackson’s “The Lord of the Rings”- and “The Hobbit”- trilogies. Now you are able to see the Hobbiton Movie Set during a 2-hour tour, giving you astonishing insights into how these movies were made and which parts of the movies were filmed here. Then either continue on to Auckland or Rotorua, depending on which touring option you have booked.
