We'll start by collecting you from your chosen accommodation (or airport) in Auckland, before embarking on the drive through the beautiful New Zealand countryside, arriving at the World famous Hobbiton movie set, where Peter Jackson filmed his Middle Earth in the iconic "Lord of the Rings" and "The Hobbit" movies.

You will easily become enchanted by the magic and fantasy as you explore this homeland of the Hobbits. Capture your movie moment with a photo outside Bilbo Baggin's famous home at Bag End.

This is the type of adventure that helps develop a hobbit-like hunger, so we'll enjoy a festive feast for lunch and we'll also pop into the Green Dragon Inn to sample a medieval beverage as part of your complete experience.

After this, we will take a drive past the splendid Lake Karapiro, where many of New Zealand's best rowers and kayak athletes train and compete, before arriving at he exquisite Ruakuri Cave in Waitomo.

This is a mind-blowing, mystical cave, full of beauty and steeped in Maori legend. From the moment you walk in through the spectacular spiral entrance, you will know you are somewhere truly special.

The Limestone formations and crystal tapestries are breathtaking and enhanced by the ethereal luminescence of the famous glow-worms.

We don't want to rush you along, and this cave offers an extended guided experience that the other more touristic caves cannot offer. This is also one of the few caves where you can take photos in selected places, which is vital to preserving your memories of this incredible day.

To make it even better, your tour guide is also a skilled professional photographer, trained to help capture the magic moments you experience along the tour!

Your final drop off point is by arrangement and can be almost anywhere in Auckland, Hamilton, Tauranga or Rotorua.

Comfort is paramount, so refreshment breaks and great photo opportunities will be ensured. Our VIP tour tailors the day to suit your pace and preferences, offering you more flexibility than most other tours could dream of!
