Overview

Departing Auckland, New Zealand, enjoy a one-day Waitomo Caves & Rotorua Small Group Tour including Te Puia to the magical Glowworm Caves of Waitomo and the geothermal attractions of Rotorua.

From your hotel, we will pick you up in our comfortable 12-seater mini-bus for a fully guided journey to Waitomo Caves through the bucolic Waikato countryside. On the way to Waitomo, see the longest river in New Zealand, admire scenic mountain views, and encounter an interesting mix of farm animals.

On reaching Waitomo, enter the magical millennia-old caves and marvel at the collection of diverse cave formations including lime columns, stalagmites and stalactites before going down further underground to start your glowworm experience. Cruise on the grotto river aboard a boat and gaze up at the thousands of entrancing glowworms overhead that have drawn visitors for over 120 years. The glowworms are found only in New Zealand and are a breathtaking attraction to any visitor in the region.

Embark on another fully guided journey as we continue our adventure south to Rotorua. Expect to encounter many more animals and other attractions like rivers and hydrodams. Arriving at Rotorua, we will show you around its namesake lake, and some of its renowned and historical attractions like the thermal springs, the Polynesian Spa, the Blues Bath, and the Government Gardens. We then move on to one of New Zealand’s most popular tourist draws, the Te Puia Geothermal Park. We will take our lunch inside the park where you have the opportunity to try our highly recommended Maori hangi meal.

Following lunch, enjoy a fully guided tour of this fascinating park to experience the geothermal and cultural wonders it’s famous for. Stand before the Pohutu Geyser, gaze into geothermal craters and vents, visit the Maori craft school, admire traditional Maori architecture, and make the most of your visit to the kiwi viewing house to spy a kiwi bird.

Cap off your tour by taking advantage of some discounted souvenir shopping that your guide will take you to before your fully guided return trip to Auckland.
