Three essential New Zealand experiences, one low price: Venture to the "real" Middle Earth with a tour of the Hobbiton movie set, take in all the spectacular views and wildlife with a Bay of Islands cruise, and cap it off with a visit to the magical Waitomo glow worm caves with this great value combined tour package! Departing from Auckland and spread out over two days, you'll take in all the highlights of each of these famed New Zealand sightseeing spots; walk through the spots Peter Jackson used as the base for Hobbiton from the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit movies; follow it up with a tour and boat ride combination to explore the wonders of the Waitomo Glow Worm caves with their many limestone formations and magical Glow Worm Grotto

Then cap it all off on the second day with an epic land-and-sea based adventure to the stunning, wildlife-rich Bay of Islands, taking in the likes of the Cape Brett Peninsula, the Cape Brett Lighthouse and - of course - the iconic Hole in the Rock (which you may even be able to cruise through!) Keep your eyes peeled for marine life such as dolphins, whales and more before heading back to Auckland at the end of the day

  • End the tour with a boat ride through the Glowworm Grotto – an enchanting underground cavern lit up by thousands of tiny glowworms
  • Following the tour you will be served a picnic-style lunch (vegetarian and other dietary options available on request) en route to Rotorua, where you will transfer to the Hobbiton tour bus for a short but scenic drive across the Kaimai Ranges to Matamata

MD AKRAM 4 years ago This a wonderful tour for anyone interested in the books and the films - the set is a delight from beginning to end. The guides are very professional (ours was, I think, at one time a drama student and his presentation was clear, witty and well-paced). You have lots of photo opportunities all around the 'village' and then finish off with a complementary drink at The Green Dragon Inn. I just wish there were pubs like this in the UK - it would be standing room only as it's so lovely and atmospheric. The town of Matamata where the tour starts is quite fun also. They've obviously embraced the whole LotR thing and renamed their shops and cafes after characters - Strider this and Gandalf that. Even the local tourist info office is a mock-up of a Hobbit hole, complete with round doors.
