Discover one of the most iconic movie sets in the world as well as one of New Zealand's main tourist attractions in one day on this trip to Hobbiton and the Waitomo Caves.
Hobbiton & Waitomo Caves Tour
At 6:30 am we'll pick you up from your accommodation in the centre of Auckland before boarding a comfortable minibus and setting off on a two-hour journey to Matamata. Welcome to Middle-earth!
When we arrive, we'll step out into a magical universe where we'll admire the beautiful velvety green landscapes of Hobbiton, its hills covered in Hobbit Holes.
We'll start to explore Hobbiton as we learn all about the filming of this famous saga. We'll discover all the iconic elements of this incredible movie set, such as Bilbo Baggins' home, the Mill and even the Green Dragon Inn, where you'll get to enjoy a specially brewed beverage.
Afterwards, we'll head to Waitomo to visit its famous caves. We'll go on a boat ride along the underground river and marvel at the walls of the cave lit up like a starry night sky by glowworms! A once-in-a-lifetime experience that will take your breath away.
At the end of the trip we'll make our way back to Auckland, arriving by around 4:30 pm.
