Hobbiton & Waitomo Glowworm Caves Small Group Tour from Auckland

See two of New Zealand's most famous attractions in one day! The magical Hobbiton Movie Set and the breath-taking Waitomo Glowworm Caves on a fully guided, small group tour.

Highlights

  • Hobbiton Movie Set Guided Tour
  • Waitomo Caves Guided Tour & Glowworm Grotto Boat Ride
  • Complimentary drink at the Famous Green Dragon Inn
  • Alexander Family Sheep Farm & Shire's Rest
  • Special lake stop and secret wildlife stop

The adventure to two of New Zealand's most famous attractions begins with a convenient pick-up in a comfortable 12-seater minibus by your expert driver guide.

We journey through stunning Waikato countryside and farmland to the Alexander family sheep farm where you can purchase a light refreshment before jumping on-board the bus to Hobbiton!

The amazing two hour fully guided Hobbiton Movie set tour features interesting commentary and covers the 12 acre movie set where you'll see the hobbit holes, pastures of the Shire and gardens, followed by a cheeky beverage at the famous Green Dragon Inn.

The scenic journey then continues to Waitomo, past hydro dams, beautiful farmland, race horses and the Kiwiana capital of New Zealand with a stop for lunch and a little surprise at the Waitomo homestead.

At Waitomo, you'll be in awe of the fascinating caves and their amazing varying cave formations. You'll be treated to thousands of Glowworms sparkling above you on the boat cruise on the grotto river - truly a once in a lifetime experience!

Finally we head back to Auckland, passing by New Zealand's longest river, Huntly power station and the Maori Queens’ burial site.

Great trip

I was not that interested in Hobbiton when booking the trip. Once I got there it was pretty cool. The Glow Worm caves were great. Matt our guide was incredibly nice and informative. He was easy to talk to and approachable. I'm glad I went in a small group.

Perfect day to spend a day trip

While there was a bit of driving involved, it did not feel rushed and it was a perfect amount of time for a solid day's worth of fun and adventure. I am a huge Tolkien fan so Hobbiton was right up my alley. You see up to 40 hobbit holes and get to drink at the Green Dragon Inn as well. The glow worms felt like you were in a sensory deprivation tank and staring up at constellations.

Awesome experience!

Awesome experience! Tour is amazing, you have to wake up early but the best thing is that you arrive first at hobbiton and there are 0 people there (only hobbits :)) so the pics are great! Thanks team!
