The capital of New Zealand - Wellington has been recently labelled the 'coolest little capital in the world' by Lonely Planet, as well as the world's most liveable city. This city is a home to the National Archives, the National Library, the Te Papa National Museum, numerous theatres, and two universities.

29 July / Day 9: New Plymouth – Waitomo
We've planned a sporting day today. We start with an easy hiking experience to enjoy views of Mount Taranaki. According to Maori mythology the volcano Mt Taranaki once stood in the center of the North Island near the volcanoes of Tongariro, Ruapehu, and Ngauruhoe. However, Taranaki and Tongariro clashed for the right to be the husband of another mountain, the beautiful Pihanga. Tongariro drove Taranaki southwest towards the coast where the modern city of New Plymouth is situated today. Since that time he has stood there alone and the eruptions of Mt Tongariro remind Taranaki that there is no way back for him. A view from above shows that the picturesque Taranaki has a perfectly round base. Its height is 2518 meters above sea level and the last eruption occurred in 1854. In 1881 the Egmont National Park was founded around the volcano - a paradise for lovers of hiking and the great outdoors activities. The Goblin Forest, one of the natural filming locations of the movie The Lord of the Rings, is located within it. Also, we visit a spectacular Te Rewa Rewa bridge and continue our way to Waitomo.
30 July / Day 10: Waitomo Caves – Hobbiton - Auckland
We wake up early in the morning, have breakfast departing a hotel at 08.30 am to start an amazing tour to Waitomo Glowworm Cave. 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! Whether 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. Enjoy a lunch at Shire Rest Café (not included in the price) before we take off for Auckland at about 4 pm.
31 July / Day 11: Auckland
Day at leisure. Why not spend a day at the ocean? New Zealand’s most unique whale and dolphin watching safari cruise departs from downtown Auckland. Don't miss a chance to enjoy a 4.5-hour cruise on board the luxurious yacht as we explore the beautiful Hauraki Gulf Marine Park.
1 August / Day 12: Wine Tour & 3rd match of USA
We start to warm ourselves up for the 3rd game of the USA team with a wine tour to Waiheke island. What can fit this day better than tasting world-class wines in a gorgeous atmosphere? 40 minute ferry ride in air-conditioned comfort will bring you to the island, where the magical blend of beach life, artisan creativity and wine culture attracts people worldwide. You’ll be met by luxury coach & be whisked away to enjoy a tour of three of Waiheke’s premier wineries.

GREATEST TRIP EVER We had the most incredible experience. World of Discoveries made our trip to Qatar for the World Cup so easy and enjoyable. Mike helped us with any questions we had before the trip and anything we needed during the trip. The rest of the staff was so helpful and nice during the trip that it removed any worry we had during the trip so all we had to do was sit back and enjoy the wonders of the trip. I would highly recommend them for use in any trip. By far, this was the best trip I have ever been on and they played a HUGE role in making that the case. GREATEST EXPERIENCE EVER!!!
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.
Rene & Patricia Aguirre Olivares
We have some issues with FIFA Haya card, and the agency support us all the time, ensuring we could enter to the stadium. Our manager behavior was so kindly and very responsible to support us at any moment.
Great experience and organisation by the team at World of Discoveries - communication was great all the way through the trip
First time with the World of Discoveries tour but my fifth time overall with tour guided trips. They did an amazing job finding the best hotel places especially the Museum Hotel that was connected to the QT. Loved that we could do laundry since we were traveling for 2 weeks. The selection of itinerary was spot on and had so many wide arrangement for all to participate. The Hobbiton was surprisingly my favorite and definitely need to go. Our tour guide Micheal was extremely friendly, knowledgeable and helpful through your our trip. Communication was very good having the WhatsApp helped with knowing when and where we needed to meet at all times. Plus the other travels on the tour guide was a bonus since we all loved soccer and got along extremely well. OVERALL the trip was a big success and I would ? book another trip with them.
Carlos Silva, Family & Friends
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!!
