Itinerary

See the magical Waitomo Caves and the Hobbiton Movie Set on a full-day sightseeing tour from Auckland. Step on board your luxury Gray Line coach tour and travel south, taking in typical New Zealand scenery as you ride - lush green farmland and rolling hills.

The Hobbiton Movie Set has become one of New Zealand's must-see destinations. A working farm near the small town of Matamata was transformed into a film set for the world-famous Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit movies, and today you can visit the set and see where the magic was created.

During your guided tour of the Hobbiton Movie Set you'll see highlights like the original Hobbit Holes, the Green Dragon Inn, the Party Tree and more! Your tour guide will share amazing behind-the-scenes stories and fascinating facts about how the film set was brought to life.

After you've had your fill of movie magic, sit down to lunch - a delicious feast worthy of a true hobbit - outside the Green Dragon Inn.

Your next stop is at the Waitomo Glowworm Caves, a network of underground tunnels and caves made from incredible limestone formations. Set off on a 45-minute guided tour of the caves, ending with a truly special boat trip through the Glowworm Grotto, where glowworms twinkle and shine overhead as you sail through a dark and silent cavern.

After exploring these two top New Zealand visitor attractions, your driver guide will take you back to Auckland, returning in the early evening.
