Waitomo Glow Worm Caves day tour from Auckland

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 Waitomo caves. After your Auckland City pick up we drive through iconic New Zealand farmland and stop at a great local cafe on the way to Waitomo Caves for morning tea (own cost).

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, we have lunch at a local cafe before we return to Auckland with an afternoon tea stop on the way (own cost).
