your experience

You'll drive out of Auckland on a comfortable bus, towards Waikato. Along the way, gaze at Waikato's stunning countryside. Deboard at the Hobbiton Movie Set and board a big green Hobbiton bus- spend 2 hours exploring the 12-acre movie set, driving past the lush pastures of the Shire, the 44 hobbit holes, and more. A cold beverage on the house awaits you at the famous Hobbiton pub ‘The Green Dragon Inn’.

On your way to Rotorua, you'll pass through Tirau, famously dubbed the 'Corrugated Iron Capital of the World' because of its iron buildings and sculptures. Head next to the Wai-O-Tapu Geothermal Wonderland. A surreal attraction, you'll find local mud-pools, geothermal craters, and other geothermal wonders here. At Rotorua, enjoy a guided driving tour through the city's most famous sites. Lake Rotorua, Rotorua Museum, Government Gardens, Whangapipiro (Rachel Spring), and the Blue Baths are some to note. Hit the souvenir shops for some discounted shopping before heading back to Auckland.
