DescriptionExplore three of the North Island's most famous destinations on a two-day tour by comfortable coach bus from Auckland. Get picked up from your hotel in Auckland and board an air-conditioned coach bound for the Waitomo Glowworm Caves. On arrival, enjoy an official 45-minute guided tour that includes a short boat cruise underneath a canopy of glittering glowworms. Climb back onboard the coach to eat a boxed lunch en-route to Rotorua, a town renowned for its Maori culture and geothermal activity. Watch a Maori cultural performance, learn about Maori arts and crafts, and go on a farm tour at Rotorua’s Agrodome. Stay overnight in Rotorua and get plenty of rest before heading out for day two of the tour. After breakfast at your hotel, enjoy free time for exploring at your leisure. Take the opportunity to check out the region's bubbling mud pools and catch a glimpse of the 30-meter high geyser that spouts regularly. In the early afternoon, meet at the Hobbiton shop to catch a one-hour transfer to the Hobbiton Movie Set where parts of the Lord of the Rings trilogy and The Hobbit series were filmed. On arrival at Shire’s Rest, embark on an official two-hour guided tour around the largest “green set” in the world. Take photos in front of hobbit holes, The Mill, and the party tree. Visit the Green Dragon Inn for a complimentary drink to conclude your experience. After the tour, get dropped off in Matamata and rejoin your coach for the return journey to Auckland. Enjoy an evening snack en-route before arriving in Auckland around 8:10 pm.
