Hobbiton and Waitomo Caves - Full Day Tour from Rotorua

See two of New Zealand's most admired destinations in one epic day with a full day tour from Rotorua to Waitomo Caves and Hobbiton

Highlights

  • The Hobbiton Movie Set
  • Bilbo's Bag End home
  • The Dancing Tree
  • The Green Dragon Inn
  • The Waitomo Caves
  • Glow Worms
  • Stunning Natural Wonders

Reality will soon feel like a dream on this visually stunning full day tour.

Perfect for families and a must-do for movie fans, we'll provide transport, all entry costs and a bottle of water to keep you refreshed.

We'll depart from Rotorua and your journey will be way more comfortable than Frodo’s in our air-conditioned minibus! Traveling through a stunning part of New Zealand, we first head for the Hobbiton movie set on the outskirts of Matamata.

44 hobbit holes line the hillside, with Bilbo’s famous Bag End home being an obvious highlight. Relive your favourite movie moments as you dance around the Party Tree and walk down Bagshot Row. The shires rest café offers additional sustenance to hungry hobbits and the Green Dragon Inn is just a stone’s throw away.

Once we’ve had our fill of fantasy we’ll set our course for Waitomo to admire the sensational natural wonders found within their caves.

Glow-worms adorn the cave ceilings with a magical glow. The cave formations are incredible and seem somewhat unreal while all the time being completely natural.

Once you're ready we'll head back to Rotorua where our friendly guide will drop you back at the Rotorua i-site.

All up the tour will take about 10 hours but the memories will last all your lifetime.

 

Departure Location: Rotorua i-SITE, 1167 Fenton Street, Rororua CBD.

Great trip!

The tour was a really great way to see both Hobbiton and Waitomo caves in one day. We left Rotorua early so avoided the rush hour in Hobbiton. Our driver was a really nice and friendly person who nicely took good care of us the whole day.

Lovely day trip

We had a small minibus of 8 of us plus the driver. The drive was smooth and the weather was lovely. If you are planning on visiting Hobbiton, don't go on a rainy day! We had a nice stop for lunch where there were cafe and buffet options or you could eat your own food. The Waitomo section was very brief only 45mins in the cave so it would be nice if the tour operator offered the option of an additional cave. The main glow worm cave does not allow photography.
