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.

    Unstructured pickup - great experience

    We were told to be ready at 7:15 at hotel, but at 8:20 we had not left the bus station yet! And our hotel is 1 minute away from bus station! A very unstructured pick up procedure where people have to stand in a long line to be checked in by ONE staff! To allocate people to 3 buses! Put up 3 signs for the 3 trips, and let the driver check the printed confirmation and name on list, he was just standing idle waiting for this dreary and unstructured procedure. We were baffled at this. Once driving we had to switch bus! Poor driver! He was SO informative and a very good driver! Very interesting and knows everything!!! The rest og the trip was awesome but check up on your lack of organisation.

    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

    Great value for money

    Our driver was very knowledgable and provided us with a lot of interesting facts (I feel like the explanation of first encounter of Maori with first explorers was a bit whitewashed so it would be nice to provide Maori point of view as well. Hobbiton was beautiful & the included lunch was so good! Food was amazing & I can completely recommend it. Even though it was organised tour I didn’t feel rushed and there was enough time to enjoy the food and sights, take pictures and buy souvenirs. Waitomo caves were ok and the boat ride was absolutely magical! The group was a mix of all ages, from solo travellers, younger and older couples and I think there was one or two families on it as well.

    Kia ora Sara, We'd have to agree with you! Hobbiton is great and not too rushed, the food is scrumptious! Thanks for sharing, I'll make sure your lovely feedback is passed on to our team. All the best for your future travels, Esther and the team at GreatSights

    Amazing day!!!

    It was such an amazing day :) We left Auckland early to drive to Matamata, where the movies were filmed. Damian, our busdriver, told us so much about NZ, the people and their values, it was very inspiring and interesting!! He always made sure we were feeling good and were on time. He was amazing!!! :) The Hobbiton tour was awesome (a bit hectic and touristy though, but doesn‘t matter - you‘ll love it!!)! Same as the lunch,as a backpacker I haven‘t eaten such a good food in a while, haha :) The Waitomo Caves were so so so beautiful, which was also because our amazing tour guide China was lovely and explained everything very well. Best day ever, thank you so much for everything!!! :)

    ㅍㅌㅊ

    혼자서 호비튼과 와이토모 투어를 하였는데, 중간에 가이드 분께서 “요즘 시간을 드리면 늦는 사람이 꼭 있다 45분에 출발한다고 하면 45분에 반드시 버스에 계시라”라고 하셔서 그냥 단골멘트 인줄알앗는데 1분만 늦어도 걍 ㄹㅇ 버리고 감ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ그래서 한 팀 ㄹㅇ 버려짐. 이 투어에서는 절대 늦으시면 안될 것 같구 30명 중 10명이 한국인 이엇습.
