What you need to know

Visit 3 essential New Zealand attractions with a combined triple pass to visit the "real" Middle Earth of the Hobbiton Movie Set, take a tour of the stunning Waitomo Caves, and visit the geothermal wonderland of Te Puia all for a single great price! Start your journey off with a trip to Hobbiton with its iconic hole-in-the-ground buildings that have served as a world-famous film set, getting an insider's look at where some of the famed scenes of the movie trilogy were shot. Follow it up with a trip through the array of spouting geysers, bubbling mud pools and steamy springs of Te Puia - one of NZ's most impressive examples of tourist-friendly volcanic activity - on a 4.5 hour tour that also includes traditional Maori welcome and cultural performance as well as a traditional Hangi dinner.

Cap it all of with a trip to the magical Waitomo Glowworm Caves as you float on a small vessel gently through this naturally-lit cavern and witness the thousands of glow worms illuminating the walls and ceilings of the caves like stars in the night sky. As an added bonus, you'll also get a 2 hour tour of the Ruakuri Cave for further insight! Save both time and money with a range of comprehensive tour/attraction offerings all for a highly reasonable cost - book yourself a "Middle Earth Trilogy" sightseeing package online today.
