Travel to the magical Lord of the Rings Hobbiton Movie set, the geothermal wonders of Rotorua, Te Puia Geothermal Park, and Maori cultural village all on this combo guided tour. At the entrance of Hobbiton, you'll find the Alexander family sheep farm and Shire's Rest. Pet flocks of sheep, grab a bite to eat or enjoy ice cream on a hot, sunny day before boarding the green Hobbiton bus for your 2-hour guided tour. Explore the 12-acre movie set passing by lush pastures of the Shire, 44 hobbit holes, and amazing gardens. Top up your experience with a free cold beverage at the famous Hobbiton pub, The Green Dragon Inn.

Head next to the active geothermal area of Rotorua- you'll pass by the unique town of Tirau, also dubbed as the corrugated iron sculpture capital of the world for its many iron buildings and sculptures. Deboard at Rotorua and pass by iconic historical sites, like Lake Rotorua, The Government Gardens, Blue Baths, Thermal Springs and Polynesian Spa, and more. Head to Te Puia Geothermal Park from here, where you'll stop for a traditional Maori Hangi meal. After refueling your bodies, enjoy a fully-guided tour through the geothermal and cultural wonders: gasp at Māori Architecture, the National Māori Arts School, pass along geothermal craters and geothermal events and bask in the beauty of New Zealand. You'll enjoy the Māori Cultural Performance, a high-energy, world-class show performed by the talented resident performing arts group. Keep your eyes peeled for this performance, for they will leave you spellbound!
