Driving in our luxurious SUVs we depart your hotel or cruise ship headed for the Bombay hills. Signifying our departure from the Tamaki Makaurau (Auckland) region, and our entrance to the Waikato Region, we traverse through the hills to our first stop, the legendary Hobbiton. Experience this world famous location as you walk in the footsteps of some of your favourite characters from J.R.R Tolkiens Lord of the Rings & The Hobbit series. You will then have an optional lunch at the Green Dragon Inn onsite at Hobbiton before we depart for our next stop.
We then travel to the sparkling glow worm caverns of Waitomo. This stunning array of glow worms through the tunnels is reminiscent of the starry night sky. Cruise along the cave in a river boat as the secrets of these tunnels are deciphered before you. Be sure to have a jacket or hoodie as it can get cold underground.
Next we travel through to two of our hidden gem locations for a quick walk through the forest as we marvel in some of the hidden gems we have found on our travels. Be sure to have your camera ready as you explore some of Waikato’s best kept secrets.
Finally we travel back home to Auckland City to drop you off at your City Hotel or Cruise Ship.
