Description

GUARANTEED DEPARTURE - WE DO NOT CANCEL FOR LOW NUMBERS

We start our day travelling from Auckland to Hobbiton through Waikato, where you will take in the gorgeous scenery of Dairy Farms and the Hauraki Plains. On arrival at Hobbiton, you will be guided through the picturesque, 1,250-acre sheep farm w

The Hobbit holes, Green Dragon Inn, the Mill and other structures were created for The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit films. They can be viewed and you will see how this beautiful piece of Waikato farmland was transformed into The Shire from Middle-Earth, with the finale being a complimentary drink at the “Green Dragon Inn”.

After this tour, you will travel to Rotorua (approximately 55 minutes) to Te Puia where you will have lunch. Te Puia spans 70 hectares within the historic Te Whakarewarewa Valley, on the edge of Rotorua. It is home to the Pohutu geyser, mud pools, hot springs, silica formations, the Kiwi bird and the national schools of wood carving, weaving, stone and bone carving. Because of the distance we need to travel, we are only able to spend approximately 90 minutes in Rotorua including eating your Cafe lunch and exploring Te Puia on your own.

From there we travel to the World-renowned Waitomo Caves, The Waitomo Glowworm Caves occupy a high placing in the New Zealand holiday wish-list. The glow worm, Arachnocampa Luminosa, is unique to New Zealand. following which we return to Auckland by approximately 7:30 pm.

ワイトモ洞窟ツアー、ロトルアのテ・プイア観光、ホビット村観光と充実したツアーでした。タイムスケジュールが不明のまま参加でしたので、お土産を選ぶ時間があまりなかったのが少し残念でしたが安心して参加出来ました。
