|Auckland - Waitomo Caves - Hobbiton (Movie Set) - Auckland Day Scenic Bus Tour|
See two magical places come to life on this day tour from Auckland. First explore the Waitomo Glowworm Caves and be entranced by the thousands of twinkling lights in the glow worm grotto. Then visit the Hobbiton Movie Set, the filming location of the village of Bilbo Bagins and his fellow hobbits in ‘The Lord of the Rings’ movie trilogy. As you explore Hobbiton, you can pose for pictures in front of the hobbit holes, the pond and the Green Dragon Inn.
Leave Auckland behind and enjoy the scenic drive through the Waikato and King Country regions of New Zealand’s North Island. Enjoy a snack on the coach and admire the rolling hills and lush farmlands, as you travel through Rangariri, where a fierce battle for land rights between British colonialists and the Maori took place. You’ll soon arrive in the village of Waitomo - home to the renowned Waitomo Glow worm Caves.
Take a guided tour through the caves and see the amazing limestone formations created over the centuries. Then board a boat for a short ride along the river to witness the magic of the glow worms. As you enter the grotto, you will see thousands of tiny lights flashing in the darkness, each one a glow worm, creating a mystical fairyland.
Next, enjoy a picnic lunch (included) before continuing on toward Rotorua, driving across the Kaimai Ranges, and making your way to Matamata, where you’ll visit the Hobbiton Movie Set! Discover how this working sheep farm was transformed into JRR Tolkien’s fictional village of Hobbiton – part of the Shire and home of Bilbo Bagins – for The Lord of the Rings movie series. Have your photo taken in front of a hobbit hole and see the Green Dragon Inn, the Mill and other locations that you’ll recognize from the three movies, all of which were filmed around New Zealand .
After your tour of Hobbiton, you return to Auckland.
Price includes return coach travel, guided tour of the glow worms cave at Waitomo, lunch, entrance to Hobbiton and guided tour of Hobbiton movie set.
