Later, slip inside a pair of magical worlds, first on a cruise through the fascinating glowworm caves of Waitomo, then to Middle-Earth itself on a visit to an actual Lord of the Rings film set. In Rotorua, you’ll have the opportunity to explore the volcanic wonders of this geothermal fantasyland before enjoying a warm welcome and traditional hangi – where food is cooked in earth ovens heated by geysers – at a traditional Maori village. From there, the scene shifts southward to Milford Sound, the South Island’s incredible glacier-carved fjordscape. After cruising the sound, a scenic flight over the stunning alpine scenery brings you to Queenstown, gateway to the world-famous Mount Cook region. In this active traveler’s paradise, you’ll have the chance to explore the Tasman Glacier by boat with an expert guide and take a guided hike through Hooker Valley, home to some of New Zealand’s mightiest peaks, including Mount Cook (Aoraki, or “cloud-piercer in Maori). It all wraps up in Christchurch courtesy of the TranzAlpine railway, which offers perhaps the most dramatic views of New Zealand you’ll see – which, at this point in the journey, is really saying something.

    Rehana was wonderful. Her recommendations were all top notch and made me realize how well she knew Australia. Everything ran like clockwork and that allowed us to make the most of what was actually a short time in Australia. She was also very patient with my many questions and gave me alternatives when I asked. It is the third time that we've used Kensington Tours and I can't imagine using anyone else. We've never been disappointed.
