Hobbiton & Waitomo Small Group Guided Tour from Auckland
Enjoy guided tours of both the Hobbiton Movie Set and the Waitomo Glowworms caves on a full-day sightseeing tour from Auckland. Leaving at 7:00, journey into the heart of the North Island, travelling through the lush green farmland of the Waikato and King Country regions. Be entertained and informed by your driver guide’s commentary, visiting Hobbiton, of ‘Lord of the Rings’ and ‘The Hobbit’ fame and the stunning Waitomo Glowworms caves. What more could you want from a day? Just outside the town of Matamata is the 12 acre movie set, located on a picturesque 1,250 acre sheep and beef farm, where you can visit ‘Bag End’ the Hobbit Hole belonging to Bilbo, or sample the unique brew at the Green Dragon Inn.
Hobbiton is a remarkable place, created by Sir Peter Jackson for his films, but now existing as a living, breathing piece of Middle-Earth. You’re guaranteed to fall in love with the rambling paths & hillsides of the Shire. At the world famous Waitomo Glowworms caves, take a 45-minute guided tour past stunning cave formations and learn how stalactites, stalagmites and other limestone structures were formed over millions of years in awesome caverns that used to be part of an ancient seabed. And you’ll take a boat ride through the Glowworms grotto, gliding silently along the underground river as you admire the luminescent glowworms overhead, like stars in the Milky Way!
