We headed to Rotorua first and saw the magnificent geysers and a Moari Tribal experience. Then headed over to Hobbiton and enjoyed a local beer after a guided tour through the valley. Enjoyed the day thoroughly!

Excellent guided walk around Hobbiton. Amazing movie set, only thing missing were hobbits. Maori cultural centre was interesting and entertaining. Would have like to see more mud pools but at least we saw one.
