    What a wonderful tour - really, everything you want: a nice early start to get to Hobbiton before the big crowds arrive, terrific lunch at Te Puia and LOTS to do and see there: the thermal pools and geysers, Maori crafts institute, and don’t miss seeing live kiwi birds! Well organized tour, and if you can, go with driver/guide Darryl, who is super knowledgeable, good natured, patient, and can tell you which side of the Hobbiton bus to sit on to get the best view coming into the movie set! Thanks so much for a great day!

    Had a great time with this full day tour. We only had a couple of days in NZ and we're glad we booked this tour.

    This tour was amazing!

    It was an amazing trip to the Hobbiton movie sets and we enjoyed every bit of it. Thr rotorua trip was good but felt like we could see more. It was too short and not worth the money. The coach drivers were very kind and good. Will definetly recommend the Hobbiton tour.

    It was amazing! Everything was beatiful! The only negative thing is that they say you can enter in one of the houses, but its not really the inside of a house as you thing. Its just a small dig up they made so you can take a picture on the inside of a window, to pretend you are inside of a house. AMazing as it is, they shouldnt say you can enter a house or they should build the interior of one and say you can enter.

    Long Day bus rides 8 hours. Rained all day but Hobbiton was great-Green Dragon Inn with fire to dry out.
    Geysers were worth the visi. Overall well organized and value for money

    Makes a great day tour combination from Auckland. The tour company provides transport from Auckland and ticket purchase, the tours are then provided by on site guides at Hobbiton and Rotorua who were great Stunned at how magnificently maintained Hobbiton is and the efficient way they ran tours and the Maori guide at Rotorua was terrific as was our Hangi lunch. Tour company Bus driver was not great - she could well do to keep her opinions of immigrants, Asians and her negative comments about staff at the sites to herself. This was a real turn off for me.

    hobbiton and rotorua were great , what's not is by 3pm we were finished and had to wait for the people who went to waitomo caves, we also had to drop off a couple at a hotel. We were literally waiting in a parking lot for a total of 1 hr doing nothing and an additional 30-40 mins going around town checking some lakes etc but obviously it's to burn time so we don't have to wait longer at the parking lot. If you can't amend this then I suggest you add wine tasting or some other activity. I keep thinking we could have been back in the hotel by 6pm but instead we got home 8pm super tired!
