Waitomo Caves & Hobbiton Movie Set - Full Day Tour With Lunch - Ex Auckland

 

Discover two world-famous New Zealand attractions in one day, with guided tours the Hobbiton Movie Set and the magical Waitomo Glowworm Caves.

Step aboard our luxurious coach and soak up the rolling farmland scenery and entertaining commentary as we travel south.

Just outside the rural town of Matamata is the Hobbiton Movie Set – a picturesque 1,250 acre farm where scenes from the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit movie trilogies were filmed. During your guided tour of the Hobbiton Movie Set you'll see highlights like the original Hobbit Holes, the Green Dragon Inn and the Party Tree, and get to hear intriguing behind the scenes stories.

After you've had your fill of movie magic, sit down to lunch and enjoy a delicious buffet lunch feast outside the Green Dragon Inn.

Our next stop is the world famous Waitomo Glowworm Caves, a truly incredible network of underground tunnels and caves made from limestone formation. Experience a 45-minute guided tour of the caves, ending with a magical boat trip through the Glowworm Grotto. Be in awe as thousands of glowworms glisten around you as you sail through the dark and silent cavern.

    Hobbiton and Watomo Cave

    The Hobbiton was amazing . I went there when it raining but the staff are very nice provide the umbrella . Ginger beer is tasty and lunch buffet was awesome. Waitomo cave is good but cannot take photo inside.

    Allan

    Allan is an absolute legend, if I may say a young David Attenborough.. he made my bus ride nearly as amazing as my tours. All my other tour guides were lovely aswell, loved the pale ale and hobbit holes. A baby was crying on my boat in the caves and that made me upset but I went into deep meditation and really put it in my memory bank like Allan had recommended. Didn't want to leave! Awesome experience and thanks to everyone that made it happen.

    Amazing day trip! Worth every cent!

    I had a perfect day, from start to finish. I loved the drivers commentary, he (Allan I think) was very knowledgeable about basically everything and kept me entertained during the bus ride. Hobbiton was amazing and the lunch was very yummy. Waitomo Caves was amazing too! All in all, don't think twice about going on this tour, just do it! You will be happy you did!
