Leaving Auckland, you’ll experience the beautiful Waikato countryside in luxurious coach comfort. During your trip your local driver guide will entertain you with stories and information about the region and its history.

Set off on a 45-minute guided tour of the Waitomo Caves, filled with gorgeous glowworms, ending with a truly special boat trip through the Glowworm Grotto, where glowworms twinkle and shine overhead as you sail through a dark and silent cavern. Plus, you’ll enjoy a free picnic lunch while you travel to your next destination.

Once at Hobbiton Movie Set you’ll be expertly guided as you stroll around the set – stand in the doorway of a Hobbit hole, see where the hobbit Bilbo himself lived, and top off your day with a complimentary beer, ale, cider or ginger beer at the Green Dragon Inn.

All tours of Hobbiton Movie Set now include an interior Hobbit Hole™ experience, designed and crafted by the renowned creative teams behind The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit film trilogies. Located on Bagshot Row™, these Hobbit Holes offer an authentic glimpse into the charming dwellings of Hobbits going about their daily lives in the Shire™.

After you’ve experienced the Shire, hop back on our luxury coach and return to Auckland in the evening.
