Drive directly to the office, don't get the tour from within Town as it costs a lot more.
Also, you can actually stay longer at the Green Dragon and order more beer/food but they don't tell you.
But if you're unlucky to hit a busy day you'll be standing in a queue for 2 hours waiting for a guide
Whereas if you leave from Matamata on the bus you just go right on in
