Hobbiton and Waitomo Caves day tour from Auckland

(This is a new tour which is available from 1st October 2019)

Visit two iconic New Zealand attractions with this small group day tour to Hobbiton Movie Set and Waitomo Glow Worm Caves. The day includes a fully guided tour of the Hobbiton movie set and a sumptuous lunchtime feast in their Party Marquee. This is followed by a guided tour of the Waitomo Caves with a boat ride through the glowworm grotto.

Our experienced guides look after you all day from pick up to drop off at your inner Auckland City accommodation. Enjoy full commentary on the way with insights into the areas you are travelling through and background to both Hobbiton and Waitomo caves.

Our first stop is at Hobbiton where we will drive you down to the set itself and have one of the specialist Hobbiton guides take you on a walking tour around the 44 Hobbit holes. You will get the chance to have a photo in the doorway of a Hobbit house, see the Party Tree and stand by the gate to Bilbo’s house ‘Bag End’ overlooking the whole set to the hills in the distance. Before your buffet lunch feast in the Party Marquee (which is included in the price) enjoy a complimentary ale, cider or ginger beer in the Green Dragon Inn. After lunch we’ll give you a $10 souvenir voucher to spend at the Hobbiton gift shop before we continue on to Waitomo caves.

At Waitomo Glow Worm Caves one of their experienced guides will take you on a walking tour through the caves and talk about the limestone formations and the glowworms. At the end of the cave tour take the iconic boat ride to glide along through the world famous glowworm grotto (subject to water levels). Marvel in silence at thousands of magical glow worms, which are unique to the southern hemisphere, before exiting the cave.

After your tour at Waitomo, return to Auckland with an afternoon tea stop on the way (own cost).

Bush and Beach have been running small group day tours from Auckland for 35 years so you are in very experienced hands. Our fleet of modern vehicles mean you will be comfortable all day.
