    Andrew was extremely knowledgeable about all things New Zealand and kept us informed whilst driving to the attractions. We were dropped very close to Te Puia and Hobbiton thereby minimising the amount of walking required. Andrew even picked us up from The Green Dragon in Hobbiton after our tour so that we could negotiate the heavy traffic and get back to our ship on time - a huge thanks for that.
