auckland to HOBBITON
Our journey begins from your accommodation at 7am from where we head south over the Bombay hills towards the movie set of Hobbiton, which is located in idyllic countryside just outside of the Waikato town of Matamata.
We stop for a comfort stop and refreshments at one of the small country towns along the way, and you are welcome to indulge in our home-baked on-board morning tea picnic (included), or select from the bakery selection of one of the local cafes (not included).
Your Hobbiton movie set tour departing from Shires rest is approximately 2 hours in duration and includes a fully guided tour and a visit to the Green Dragon Inn. We have time afterwards for a bite to eat and a spot of shopping at the Shires rest.
Option: The Hobbiton Lunch Combo Tour also includes a delicious Hobbit style buffet feast. See details for additional cost. Subject to availability.
From the Hobbiton Shire we head west towards the rocky outcrops which signal the subterranean features for which the Waitomo district is famous. Waitomo Caves offers a range of extraordinary experiences to suit all abilities. This tour includes a guided walk into the cave, then a gentle drift along an underground river through a magical twinkling glow worm grotto. This entire experience takes approximately 45 minutes.
Our return trip to Auckland is via rolling rural hills. Our excursion concludes at your accommodation around 6.30pm.
