We loved our whole experience! Communication was easy and personal and we could have asked for a better guide and your! Highly recommend!!!!

The metropolitan of Auckland is known for being a melting pot of culture, food, music, art, and more but is also home to many famous attractions and landmarks. To help you make the most of your time while in Auckland, this ticket offers you the chance to visit two world-famous attractions on the same day!

After getting picked up from your stay in a luxurious Mercedes, you will journey on towards Waitomo, taking a scenic route that passes through the countryside of King Country and Waikato. Throughout the journey, your guide will help you learn about the places you are passing by, making your experience richer. Finally, when you arrive at the Glowworm Caves, there is an exciting boat ride awaiting you so that you can go see the dazzling magic of the Glowworms. From here, you will head to the Hobbiton Movie Set for a two-hour tour that will give you great insights about what went into making “The Hobbit” and “The Lord of the Rings” trilogies such a huge success.
