After being picked up from your Auckland hotel at the time of your choice, sit back and relax on the 2.5-hour drive to the Waitomo Caves. The route takes you beside the Waikato River and through the gently undulating farming country of the Waikato region. Pass the site of the famous battle fought between Maori and British forces at Rangiri, see the sacred Taupiri Mountain and photograph the Pirongia volcano hovering on the horizon if the weather is clear.

At Waitomo, join a 45-minute tour of the amazing glow-worm caves, including a tranquil boat ride on an underground stream to ensure a good view of the glow worms.

Enjoy lunch in Waitomo, then travel by private vehicle to a farm near the small town of Matamata and the Shire's Rest cafe, where your Hobbiton tour begins. You have a choice between a shared group tour or your own private tour.

Lasting just under two hours, your tour takes you on a drive through the bucolic sheep farm that was chosen as the Hobbiton movie set for The Lord of the Rings and Hobbit movies. Hear how the location was chosen, how the sets were created and which scenes were shot here. Visit famous sites from the films, including the cute Hobbit holes cut into the ground at Bag End, the Green Dragon Inn, the Mill and the Party Tree.

Your tour concludes at the quaint Shire's Rest cafe, where your private guide will collect you for your return trip to Auckland. Follow a different route on the journey, and enjoy scenic views of the North Island's countryside before being dropped at your hotel in the city.
