Auckland Sightseeing Coach Tour | Caves and Kiwi Tour

Auckland Sightseeing Coach Tour | Caves and Kiwi Tour

View the best of rural New Zealand landscape and enjoy all that the Waitomo area has to offer with this full day tour from Auckland.

The tour starts with a drive through the Waikato region with its rich Maori history and stunning farming landscapes.

Enter the Ruakuri Cave by way of a magnificent spiral ramp. This is New Zealand's longest guided underground walking tour and gets you up close to the Waitomo glowworms, as well as a wide range of limestone stalactite and stalagmite formations. Winding passageways, vast echoing caverns, deep crevices and the distant thunder of subterranean waterfalls bring a different energy and character to Ruakuri.

Unlike many other cave systems in the area, photography is allowed throughout the tour and the walkway is suitable for both wheelchairs and pushchairs.

After the cave tour and light refreshments, your guide will take you on the Ruakuri valley walk including limestone outcrops, native forest and natural sculpted cliffs. A short drive brings you to a beautiful location for lunch, a buffet featuring traditional New Zealand barbeque. After lunch, you will have the chance to see the Kiwi bird being fed at the Otorohanga Kiwi house and native bird park, home to many native New Zealand birds as well as the iconic tuatara.

Return to Auckland at the end of the day.
