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.

    Well worth it! Great tour, Great Sights

    Amazing tour, it is a very long day on the coach but well worth the price and time, our driver Jamie was amazing and very entertaining he started our day with some interesting information and facts about Auckland and New Zealand in general. He then gave a very indepth commentary about Maori Culture and practices and even sang some Maori songs throughout the day! Our Tor guide Kane at Hobbiton was also very knowledgable about the movie set. The Waitomo glow worm caves were mesmerising - a truly magical experience. Greatsights provided great service, our driver was presented as was the coach - leather seats and WIFI even!!

    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.
