Waitomo Caves & Hobbiton Movie Set - Full Day Tour With Lunch - Ex Auckland

 

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.

    Loved this tour!

    This was an awesome tour! Our tour guide Damien was filled with amazing stories and facts about New Zealand, he was the best! It was great to be able to have both tours in one trip, since they aren't far from each other. Hobbiton was so much fun, our tour guide had lots of fun facts and trivia about the movie set. It was great having the drink and buffet lunch (which was delicious) included! Waitomo caves was fascinating to see and is something I will never forget. It's sad that you can't take pictures in the caves though. I would definitely recommend this tour, it was my favorite from my trip!

    Amazing day trip! Worth every cent!

    I had a perfect day, from start to finish. I loved the drivers commentary, he (Allan I think) was very knowledgeable about basically everything and kept me entertained during the bus ride. Hobbiton was amazing and the lunch was very yummy. Waitomo Caves was amazing too! All in all, don't think twice about going on this tour, just do it! You will be happy you did!
