Waitomo and Rotorua Deluxe Day Tour from Auckland

Marvel at the shimmering lights of thousands of tiny glow-worms during a magical subterranean experience. Take in Rotorua’s impressive geysers, bubbling mud pools, stirring Maori performances and a trip to a working New Zealand farm where you'll see through the eyes of a true New Zealand farmer. Come with us as we take you on this full day adventure out of Auckland.

Situated in the heart of the North Island is the Waikato region, home to New Zealand’s largest dairy and sheep farming province. Travel towards the King Country – birthplace of the Maori Monarchy before arriving at the mystical world of Waitomo, home to the Waitomo Glowworm Caves where the local guides explain their history, features and legends of these world famous caves. 






  • View different cave formations, stalactites, stalagmites while drifting silently in a boat through a Glowworm Cavern lit up with thousands of tiny glowworm lights.
  • Maori Cultural Performance whilst surrounded by the carvings of the Maori ancestors you will be treated to the perfect harmonies, the Poi, Haka and Tititorea.
  • Jump right into the day in the life of a Kiwi farmer at the Agrodome on the all-weather, all-terrain vehicles. You’ll get to hand feed the sheep, llamas, deer and maybe the cattle. Alternatives to the Agrodome farm show are either a rejuvenating soak in the famous Polynesian Spa, an exhilarating ZORB ride, or magnificent views at Skyline Rotorua.
  • Experience one of Rotorua's most famous attractions, the Whakarewarewa Thermal Reserve and Maori Arts and Crafts Institute. Woodcarving, weaving displays and the thermal valley surrounded by boiling mud pools, fumaroles and the most famous geyser Pohutu.
