  • Admire the magic of the glowing Waitomo Caves

Make your way through the picturesque farmlands of Waikato and experience guided tours of the Hobbiton Movie Set and the Waitomo Glow-worm Caves on this full-day sightseeing tour.

A hidden gem near the township of Matamata, the Hobbiton Movie Set is a world-famous film location of the Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit movies. See Hobbit Holes, stroll through the lush gardens and learn how this private farm became Middle-earth. Head towards the famous Waitomo Glow-worm Caves after a tasty lunch at The Green Dragon Inn, where the glow-worms await. A guided 45-minute tour will take you through this underground wonder. Learn about stalactites, stalagmites and other limestone structures that formed the caves 30 million years ago. Then, hop on a boat and sail through the Glow-worm Grotto as you gaze at the sparkling glow-worms in serene silence. Finish off the tour with a coach ride back to Auckland.
