Gita di un giorno a Waitomo Caves e al set cinematografico di Hobbiville de Il Signore degli Anelli da Auckland
Fai un tour guidato attraverso le grotte e ammira le incredibili formazioni calcaree create nel corso dei secoli. Poi sali a bordo di una barca per un breve viaggio lungo il fiume per osservare la magia delle lucciole. Entrando nella grotta vedrai migliaia di lucciole nell'oscurità, che tutte insieme creano un mistico paesaggio fatato.
In seguito, potrai gustare un pranzo al sacco (incluso) prima di proseguire verso Rotorua, attraversare il Kaimai Ranges e farti strada verso Matamata, dove potrai visitare il set di Hobbiville! Scopri come questo allevamento di pecore è stato trasformato nel villaggio di Hobbiville partorito dalla fantasia di JRR Tolkien, parte del Shire e casa di Bilbo Bagins, per la serie cinematografica Il Signore degli Anelli. Fatti una foto di fronte a una tana hobbit e vedi la Locanda del Drago Verde, il mulino e altri luoghi che potrai riconoscere dai tre film girati in Nuova Zelanda

Visiting Hobbiton was something truly special, despite the cloudy weather. There was a complimentary drink at the inn, and a delicious buffet lunch included. Waitomo caves were magical. My only major regret is that contrary to the tour description on Viator, we went to Hobbiton first, even though the weather forecast for the morning was terrible. Therefore we were seeing Hobbiton while it was drizzling, and went into the caves while it was sunny and beautiful outside. Other than that, the snacks provided before the tour was just still water and 2 cookies- not much, but better than nothing.
This combined tour was awesome! The coach driver knows a lot of things about NZ, very accommodating and very kind. The tour guides in Hobbiton and Waitomo Caves are both energetic and happy to be with as well. I am looking forward to do this again with my kids. Thank you very much!
As die-hard fans of the Lord of the Rings, the Hobbiton Movie Set has always been in our bucket list to visit - do or die. This tour catered to just what we wanted, and more! Pair that with a visit to Waitomo Caves, it was a perfect way to satisfy that bucket list! Dana (I do hope that I've gotten her name right!), our tour bus driver who doubled up as our guide, was very entertaining and informative. Her sense of humor was refreshing without being intrusive. As we were travelling with a toddler, she never made us feel excluded. In fact, everyone who were on the tour with us were very accommodating and understanding (it was pretty breezy since our 2 year-old was very well-behaved throughout the tour thankfully!). I would definitely recommend this tour!
Our bus drivers really made the trip full of informative information about NZ and people and culture. Hobbiton was great to see and lovely to wander through. I thought the guides could of given more info especially if you haven't read the books or seen movies like some on our tour. It was very basic. The meal was beyond a "picnic" as described. It was delicious and well needed after a long walk, unexpected but well worth it. The Waitomo caves were fantastic although it would of been nice to spend a little longer there.
While I wished for more time in both places, there is only so much time in the day. All in all a fantastic experience, the lunch in Hobbiton was plentiful and delicious, in true Hobbit style!
Great tour. Damian was the perfect guide for the trip!
This was an amazing first day of exploring in New Zealand. Our bus driver Damian ? was Amazing!! He was almost over-the-top with the information he provided about New Zealand, including the history of the country and maori culture, current politics and core national values, and even what flavor ice-cream is popular among locals. It was really useful information to gain while visiting NZ and pretty great to have on the start of our trip so we knew things as we traveled and saw things. And of course, Hobbiton and the Waitomo Caves were both beautiful and enjoyable to visit. My only recommendation to make this tour perfect is to extend the overall time by about 15-20 minutes to allow more time to enjoy the otherwise fantastic lunch in Hobbiton. The lunch was extremely rushed for the size and type of sit-down meal. Other than that, everything was great!
Great tour and guide very informative.
