Day 1
Hotel pickups begin from 6:30am. Start your day traveling from Auckland to Hobbiton through the Waikato where you will see Dairy Farms and the Hauraki Plains. On arrival at Hobbiton you will be guided through the picturesque 1,250 acre sheep farm with spectacular views across to the Kaimai Ranges. You will be escorted through the site while listening to fascinating details of how the Hobbiton Movie set was created.

The Hobbit holes, Green Dragon Inn, the Mill and other structures were created for The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit films. They can be viewed and you will see how this beautiful piece of Waikato farmland was transformed into The Shire from Middle-Earth, with the finale being a complimentary drink at the Green Dragon Inn.

After this tour you will travel to Rotorua (approximately 55 minutes) to Te Puia where you will have lunch. Te Puia spans 70 hectares within the historic Te Whakarewarewa Valley, on the edge of Rotorua. It is home to the Pohutu geyser, mud pools, hot springs, silica formations, the Kiwi bird and the national schools of wood carving, weaving, stone and bone carving. They have shared these treasures with visitors for 170 years and proudly continue that legacy today.

You will explore Rotorua, visiting the lake front, the government gardens and other attractions before taking you to your accommodation.

You will be entertained at Mitai Village at night and will experience a Maori Cultural show and traditional Hangi Dinner.

Day 2
Enjoy breakfast from 7am. At 9am you will be collected for your tour to Waiotapu Thermal Wonderland. After this you will have about an hour to have lunch (own expense).

From Rotorua you will travel to Waitomo Caves. The Waitomo Glowworm Caves occupy a high placing in the New Zealand vacation wish-list. The glow worm, Arachnocampa luminosa, is unique to New Zealand. Thousands of these tiny creatures radiate their unmistakable luminescent light as expert guides provide informative commentary on the Caves' historical and geological significance. You will walk into the caves and sail out in a small boat.

After this, you will be taken back to Auckland where the tour will conclude.
