Discover two world-famous New Zealand attractions in one day, with guided tours the Hobbiton Movie Set and the magical Waitomo Glowworm Caves.
Step aboard our luxurious coach and soak up the rolling farmland scenery and entertaining commentary as we travel south.
Just outside the rural town of Matamata is the Hobbiton Movie Set – a picturesque 1,250 acre farm where scenes from the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit movie trilogies were filmed. During your guided tour of the Hobbiton Movie Set you'll see highlights like the original Hobbit Holes, the Green Dragon Inn and the Party Tree, and get to hear intriguing behind the scenes stories.
After you've had your fill of movie magic, sit down to lunch and enjoy a delicious buffet lunch feast outside the Green Dragon Inn.
Our next stop is the world famous Waitomo Glowworm Caves, a truly incredible network of underground tunnels and caves made from limestone formation. Experience a 45-minute guided tour of the caves, ending with a magical boat trip through the Glowworm Grotto. Be in awe as thousands of glowworms glisten around you as you sail through the dark and silent cavern.

Kia ora Dorte, Thank you for your feedback, I'm sorry to hear you found our bus station unorganised. Usually, our drivers check passengers in who're travelling with them, so I'm not sure why on the day of your tour we had one staff member checking in passengers for three different tours. I've passed your feedback on to our operations team to look into. I'm glad you had a good time seeing two of New Zealand's iconic attractions. Thanks for sharing. All the best for your future travels, Esther and the team at GreatSights
