An unforgettable tour to two of NZ's top attractions in one day - the world-famous Lord of The Rings Hobbiton Movie Set, and the geothermal and Maori cultural wonders of Te Puia...
Beginning with a convenient pick-up in a comfortable minibus, your informative guide will drive your small group through stunning Waikato countryside to Hobbiton.
Upon arrival at the Alexander family sheep farm and Shire's Rest, you'll see thousands of sheep and can enjoy a bite or drink before boarding the Hobbiton bus to start your exciting 2 hour fully guided Hobbiton Movie set tour.
You'll visit 44 hobbit holes, discover lush pastures of the Shire, learn all about the making of the films, before finishing with a cold beverage at the famous Hobbiton pub, The Green Dragon Inn.
Next, we head to the amazing geothermal area of Rotorua, first passing through the quirky town of Tirau (the corrugated iron sculpture capital of the world) and the stunning Fitzgerald Glade.
On the fully guided Rotorua city tour, you'll discover the iconic landmarks and historical sites including Lake Rotorua, The Government Gardens, Blue Baths, Thermal Springs and Polynesian Spa before heading to one of the most famous attractions in New Zealand - Te Puia Geothermal Park.
After stopping for lunch (we highly recommend trying the traditional Maori Hangi meal), enjoy another fully guided tour around the park and see Pōhutu Geyser, Māori Architecture, the National Māori Arts Schools, geothermal craters. You might even see a kiwi bird in the kiwi viewing house.
We finish up with some discounted souvenir shopping in town before heading back to Auckland.
