    On this best-selling private tour, you have the unique opportunity to experience 2 world-famous New Zealand visitor attractions on a wonderful, personally guided one-day tour. On the way to Waitomo we pass through the beautiful countryside of the Waikato and King Country. Our experienced and knowledgeable local Host-Guides will tell you about New Zealand and its extraordinary places you will see along the approximately 2.5 hour journey from Auckland to the Waitomo Glowworm caves.

    As we drive southward, we show you the sacred Taupiri Mountain as well as Ngaruawahia, the site of the famous Turangawaewae Marae (Maori meeting place) and seat of New Zealand’s Maori King. At Waitomo you will experience the world-famous Glowworm Caves on a 45 minute tour, which includes a boat ride on an underground stream to view the magically dazzling glowworms.

    From Waitomo Caves, we continue on to the Hobbiton Movie Set near the rural town of Matamata, made world-famous as the original setting for extensive portions of Peter Jackson’s “The Lord of the Rings” and “The Hobbit” trilogies.

    On arrival at the famous Hobbiton Movie Set, you will go on a 2-hour tour to give you astonishing insights into how these movies were made and which parts of the movies were filmed here. Not only movie fans will enjoy this unique experience with inside views of the Hobbit village including Hobbit Holes, Bag End, The Green Dragon Inn and astonishing facts about the filmmaking and spectacular landscape all around. Then return to Auckland after a great private tour where you have been able to see 2 of New Zealand’s most famous attractions, all in one day.
