13 Aug/ Day 2: Auckland – Waitomo – Hobbiton – Rotorua
Today you are starting a 2-day guided tour The Highlights of North Island. First, we discover amazing Waitomo Caves. The name 'Waitomo' comes from the Maori words wai - water and tomo - a hole or a shaft. So Waitomo is naturally home to many awe-inspiring subterranean sights. Huge underground caverns that you can abseil into, serene boat rides along ancient watercourses and, of course, the glow worms. World-renowned, the caves are a magical experience with the lights from thousands of exclusively NZ glow worms illuminating the pitch-black cave system full of ancient stalagmites and stalactites. Continue our way to Hobbiton and open a door to the most famous fairy tail in the world! Wether you are 'The Lord of the Rings' fan or not, you just can't miss the opportunity to gain a first-hand insight into filming of one of the most acclaimed movie sagas of all times! Get up close with over 44 hobbit holes from the film including Bilbo's Bag End & Sam Gamgee's house, dance under the party tree or swig back a beer at the Green Dragon Inn. Transfer to Rotorua, check in and relax in Polynesian, the iconic New Zealand SPA complex. You will soak in tranquil waters of the lake SPA with views on Lake Rotorua.

At a Maori cultural performance by one of the leading Kara Hake Groups you’ll hear traditional song and dance & witness the fearsome Hake. From the communal outdoor living area (Rahui) & the Wahiaoour ancestral meeting place, to the pre-school (Kohanga Reo) which played its part in revitalising the Maori language, and the village cemetery of both Catholic and Anglican churches (the missionary influence), your Maori experience will be almost complete.

World of discoveries went above and beyond on the World Cup tour, aside from the tour in Qatar they helped us and manage the logistics to get small 2-3 day tours to Egypt and Jordan in a marathon but memorable 16 days trip. We got to be in 2 of the 5 wonders of the world (Egyptian Pyramids & Petra; among other places) Everything they promised they delivered and always check on each and everyone on our group of 7. Helen from Spain did all the paper work and signed us up and the the land crew that greeted us in Doha were just perfect! Very well recommended and for the next World Cup and the Olympics they will be our go to people for the planning for a great experience such as Qatar 2022. Well done Wofdi!! Kudos to everyone of you!!! (Helen, Michael, Anna, Lina, Varya, among others) don’t meant to leave anyone out intentionally!!
WOD is a company you can trust and feel comfortable asking for anything to make your experience better. I just traveled to the 2022 World Cup with them and it was a blast. Everything nicely coordinated and great constant service and communication.
Juan Torres & Family
worldcup experience (A+) It is great when companies do exactly what you paid for. Host Anna, was amazing at answering all questions and posting in the WhatsApp groups the timings and what to expect in each of the stages of the trip. Seats could have been a little better but we were told that it was a Fifa decision.
Pascal Adolphe & Family
The World of Discoveries team made organising a complex holiday to the Qatar World Cup a breeze. My initial contact, Michael, managed to bring the cost of the holiday in line with my budget where other travel agents told me or would be impossible. On the ground we had a great experience on the desert tour and generally had a ball. Thank you
I recently toured Qatar during the World Cup with Varya and Mike’s team at World of Discoveries. The experience over three weeks was first class. Varya and her team nailed the detail for every aspect of the trip from planning and booking through to the actual travel, tours, sightseeing, transport, accommodation and ticketing to games. They were always accessible to deal with any issues that arose and went the extra mile to ensure the travelling group was happy, organised and safe. And they throw a mean party. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend World of Discoveries for trips of a lifetime.
Our experience with World of Discoveries has been impeccable. From Qatar’s World Cup onwards, they will be our #1 choice. Varya, Iren, Nathan, Damon, Iren, Lina; Anna and all the rest of the Wofdi team: Thank you!
