Experience two of New Zealand's most famous natural attractions on a luxury return day tour from Auckland, venturing underground into the magical Waitomo Caves and discovering spectacular geothermal activity and Māori culture in Rotorua.
Departing Auckland in the morning, we leave city life behind and travel south through the small rural townships of the Waikato region to our first attraction; the spectacular Waitomo Glowworm Caves.
These impressive limestone caves are home to weird and wonderful rock formations as well as enchanting glowworms. During your 45-minute tour you’ll explore the caves, ending with a short but unforgettable boat ride through the spectacular Glowworm Grotto.
Your tour continues to Rotorua where you’ll visit several of its top attractions, starting with a visit to the Agrodome for a farm tour. Get up close with some of New Zealand's most famous animals and learn about farming life in New Zealand.
After the Agrodome, visit Te Puia and be treated to a Māori concert. Inside the spectacular marae (meeting house) adorned with the carvings and woven panels of ancestors, you’ll enjoy modern and traditional Māori song and dance performances.
A visit to the Whakarewarewa Thermal Reserve & Maori Arts and Crafts Institute is also included in your tour. This geothermal hotspot is home to the famous Pohutu geyser, which shoots steam high into the air. See bubbling mud pools and hissing fumaroles, and learn about the history of the area.
Finally, board your coach for the return journey to Auckland, arriving in the evening.
