Your small-group day trip to Rotorua and Waitomo begins with an early morning pickup from your hotel in central Auckland between 6:30am - 7:30am. On arrival at your first destination, visit Te Puia and its key attraction: the Maori Arts and Crafts Institute. After you watch the cultural demonstrations, you're served a hot lunch at the cafe, then taken to Rotorua highlights such as the Rotorua lakefront and Government Gardens.

Next up are the ever-popular Waitomo Caves, famous for their tiny inhabitants — the arachnocampa luminosa, more commonly known as the New Zealand glowworm. See thousands of them radiating their unmistakable glow in the dark as your guide provides informative commentary on the caves' historical and geological significance. A boat ride takes you deeper into the caverns for a look.

If you opt to upgrade your full-day tour, gain admission to the Wai-O-Tapu Thermal Wonderland to explore the geyser, mud pools, and geothermal area. 

Your tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel in Auckland, with the option to stay on in Rotorua.
