Full description
Visit two of New Zealand's most iconic and famous attractions, the Hobbiton Movie Set and the Waitomo Glowworm Caves, on a hassle-free tour by premium bus from Auckland. 

Relax in the comfort of a premium bus with free Wi-Fi as you begin your journey. Travel through picturesque scenery as your friendly and experienced guide shares local insights with you. At the Waitomo Glowworm Caves, enjoy a 45-minute guided tour. You’ll walk in and float out, marvelling at the sparkling galaxy of blue lights on the silent boat ride through Glowworm Grotto – a subterranean cavern lit by thousands of tiny glowworms.

Your next stop is the iconic Hobbiton Movie Set. Enjoy a sumptuous buffet lunch fit for a Hobbit, served up in the festive party marquee beside the Green Dragon Inn. After lunch, your Hobbiton guide will greet you and take you on a magical journey to Middle Earth. Learn insights behind the making of the movies, pose for photographs outside hobbit holes, and sip a specially brewed beverage at the Green Dragon Inn. You’ll have some free time in the rural town of Matamata before the return trip to Auckland.
