Great! 3.5/5 Expedia Guest Rating View all 2 Expedia Verified Reviews

Leave Auckland behind you and visit the world-famous Waitomo Glowworm Caves and the geothermal wonders of Rotorua. Marvel at the stalactites and glowworms; see boiling mud pools and geysers.

Your journey begins with a hotel pickup. Then you travel south through small rural townships and New Zealand's largest dairy- and sheep-farming province, Waikato. Arrive at the Waitomo Glowworm Caves and join a walking tour through this amazing network. Take a gentle boat ride along an underground stream, past the thousands of glowworms lighting up the cave walls.

On your way to Rotorua, savor a light lunch on board the bus and journey beside magnificent rural farmland. Visit the Agrodome farm and enjoy a tractor tour. Watch a sheep being shorn, hand feed the animals, and finish with a sheep dog trial.

Visit Te Puia, New Zealand's Maori arts and crafts center. Be welcomed by a Maori cultural performance that includes the famous haka (war cry). Learn the history behind Maori carvings and visit the famous Whakarewarewa geothermal area. See the Pohutu Geyser, boiling mud pools, fumaroles, and colorful silica deposits.

We switched from the Glowworm Caves + Rotorua to

only the Caves, because we had already been to Rotorua. Although this was a much cheaper tour, Expedia refused to refund the difference in cost to us.

I was left my the Grayline driver named Ben

It was very busy and only had one hour for the tour. He didn't seem to care. I got on another bus and got with my group later that day.
