This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Waitomo Glowworm Caves, Waitomo Caves, Waitomo District, Waikato Region, North Island

Here we'll enjoy a tour of an amazing natural wonder and meet the thousands of little glowworms that turn these dark caverns into gorgeous turquoise tunnels! These unique creatures are only found in New Zealand and welcome you to explore their subterranean home.
Ride a boat beneath thousands of twinkling glowworms in the famous Waitomo Caves. We'll also have free time here to explore on our own.

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: Ruakuri Cave, Waitomo Caves, Waitomo District, Waikato Region, North Island

We'll head to Ruakuri Cave for a 2 hour tour of this fascinating pitch black cavern! Ruakrui, or "Dog's Den" in the local Maori, was originally a Maori burial site. This extensive cave hosts of complexly shaped limestone formations. Here we'll take the longest underground guided tour ever, descending into New Zealand's depths to discover million-year-old stalactites - some of which even have fossils embedded in them and have grown coral! Don't worry about bringing a flashlight, cause the caverns will be aglow with walls of glowworms!

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Hobbiton Movie Set, Hinuera, Waikato Region, North Island

Head to one of the most famous sites in New Zealand: Hobbiton! Follow an expert guide as they lead you through this expansive and amazing village! We'll see all the great and memorable sites from the Shire, including the Green Dragon Inn and field where Bilbo's birthday party was held! Along the way they'll provide exclusive commentary about the films and set, as well as the interesting characters who've visited the set over the years. They will even help take photos of you besides the miniature homes and gardens.
Finish the tour at The Green Dragon, where you can enjoy a pint of Girdley Fine Grain, Oatbarton, Sackville cider, or Frogmorton Ginger Beer (own expense)!
