For your Waitomo and Rotorua Tour you will be picked up from your hotel in downtown Auckland at around 0730h (07:30am).

Leaving Auckland you will travel through the rich farmland of the Waikato and King Country regions. Your friendly driver/ guide will provide a commentary as you travel. Enjoy a morning snack as you drive past Rangiriri, the location of an historic Maori Land Wars site.

On arrival in the small town of Waitomo enjoy a guided tour through the world famous Glowworm Caves with their amazing stalactites, stalagmites and other limestone formations. Finish the tour with a boat ride through the Glowworm Grotto – a subterranean cavern lit up by thousands of glowworms, each one no bigger than a mosquito.

Leaving Waitomo, enjoy a delicious picnic style lunch on the way to Rotorua. Arriving at the Agrodome on the outskirts of Rotorua, you’ll take a tour of an organic working farm in an all-terrain vehicle. You can also watch a sheep being shorn and view a sheep dog trial.

Leaving the Agrodome you will continue to Te Puia, one of New Zealand's foremost cultural venues. At Te Puia's marae (meeting house) enjoy a Maori cultural performance where ancient and modern stories are told through song, dance, poi and stick games.

At the conclusion of the Maori cultural performance you will enjoy a guided tour of the bubbling mud-pools and active geysers of the Te Whakarewarewa Thermal Valley including the world renowned Pohutu geyser. The tour also includes a visit to Te Puia's woodcarving and weaving schools where apprentices are trained in these traditional skills by master carvers and weavers.

After the Te Puia experience you will return to Auckland. A delicious afternoon snack including traditional Maori rewana bread is enjoyed en route.

At the end of an exciting day out you will be dropped back at your hotel in Auckland.
