If you want to catch Pokemon and see the sights Down Under, bespoke tour operator Zicasso has created a family vacation for you. Parents and kids can play the popular mobile-app game Pokemon Go while sightseeing with a private tour guide.

You’ll visit Auckland, Queenstown, Rotorua, Hobbiton (the film set of the “Lord of the Rings” movies) and the Milford Sound in New Zealand; and Melbourne, Port Douglas, the Great Barrier Reef, Kuranda, Sydney and the Blue Mountains in Australia.

Aside from the Pokemon, you’ll see real, not virtual, kangaroos while touring Australia.
