    What to Expect
    Day One

    You will be met at Auckland International Airport upon your arrival. From here, transfer to your Auckland central city hotel and spend the remainder of your day and evening at leisure.  

    Day Two

    Depart Auckland and begin your action packed day at the famous Hobbiton. On arrival at Shire’s Rest, embark on a Hobbiton movie set tour. This location is the largest 'green set' in the world in a beautiful natural setting. You’ll see 44 hobbit holes, the Mill and double arch bridge, the party tree, Bilbo’s house 'Bag End', and the Green Dragon Inn. Afterwards, you'll be treated to a delicious Hobbit-themed buffet lunch at the Shire Party Marquee.  

    Next, visit Ruakuri Glowworm Caves, a stunning limestone cave formation. Ruakuri Cave offers a captivating blend of Waitomo’s most compelling subterranean experiences. Journey down through the spectacular spiral entrance, and marvel at the dramatic limestone formations and crystal tapestries. Hear the distant thunder of the subterranean waterfalls and get up close to the glowworms. Ruakuri Cave is New Zealand’s longest guided underground walking tour and an experience.

    Finally, travel to the Otorohanga Kiwi House, the best place to see Kiwi in New Zealand! Learn more about the Kiwi bird through talks with the keepers, see active Kiwi up-close, and watch the birds being fed.

     Travel back to Auckland on board our luxury coach, taking in the stunning scenery that New Zealand has to offer.  

    Day Three

    Enjoy a morning of leisure. Your tour will conclude at the hotel upon check out.
