Visit two iconic New Zealand attractions with this fully guided, small-group tour to Hobbiton Movie Set and Waitomo Glow Worm Caves.


Enjoy full commentary along the way, with insights into the surrounding areas that you are travelling through. An experienced guide will provide background information to both Hobbiton and Waitomo Caves.


The first stop is at Hobbiton, where the tour will drive you down to the set itself and have one of the Hobbiton guides take you on a walking tour of the 44 Hobbit holes. You will get the chance to have a photo in the doorway of a Hobbit house, see the Party Tree, and stand by the gate to Bilbo’s house ‘Bag End’, which overlooks the whole set to the hills in the distance. 


Before your buffet lunch feast in the Party Marquee (which is included in the price) enjoy a complimentary ale, cider or ginger beer in the Green Dragon Inn. After lunch, the tour will give you a $10 souvenir voucher to spend at the Hobbiton gift shop before you continue on to Waitomo caves.


Then at Waitomo Glow Worm Caves, an experienced guide will take you on a walking tour through the caves and talk about the limestone formations and the glowworms. At the end of the cave tour, take the iconic boat ride to glide along through the world-famous glowworm grotto (subject to water levels). Marvel in silence at thousands of magical glow worms, which are unique to the southern hemisphere, before exiting the cave.


After your tour at Waitomo, return to Auckland with an afternoon tea stop on the way (paid for at your own expense).
