Amazing tour, Damian our driver was truly wonderful! He was very knowledgable and kind. Overall a great time.
Great tour! The bus driver was especially knowledgeable about the history New Zealand.
Absolutely awesome for LOTR or Hobbit fans! Having spent countless hours playing Lord of the Rings Online, seeing Hobbiton so well looked after was amazing. Guide was fun and informative. The group was moved along steadily, but not rushed at all.
I enjoyed this trip so much! Our tour guide Damian was fantastic. They catered to my vegan dietary requirements. The Caves and Hobbiton are two things which everyone need to experience when visiting New Zealand.
The tour was wonderful! Our bus driver / tourist guide was out of this world! I had a blast!
Really great day tour if you wanted to fit in waitomo and Hobbiton!
Amazing day! Wonderful to see new Zealands countryside :)
Daimion (our driver ) made it even better by giving us interesting facts while we were Driving to the Destinations
This tour was wonderful and we had one of the best tour guides in all our travels.
The tour operator was great.knowledgeable about New Zealand and have very positive things to say and broaden our knowledge of the country.
Excellent tour guides on coach, glowworm caves and Hobbiton! Enjoyable tour!
My tour date was 03/02/15 i had Damien i think was his name as our tour guide, he was amazing. As i was solo on this trip and a bit of a drive it was nice that he talked all the way there and i found all the history and culture of New Zealand very interesting. First stop was the Glow worm caves, incredible! The worms were like stars, magical! Then onto Hobbiton as i am a big fan of the films i thoroughly enjoyed it. The guide was very informative the movie set is awesome! The buffet lunch included was delicious. You have to go! Well worth the money :-
This was an excellent trip. There were very few people, so lines were short and the bus driver could pay special attention to us. The bus driver was informative not only about New Zealand history, landscape, and agriculture, Hobbiton, and the glow worm caves, but also talked about some current events that an international visitor wouldn't know about. Hobbiton was wonderful, uncrowded, unrushed (having read other reviews, I worried about that). The glow worm caves were interesting and the food was okay, but I didn't expect better than that. Watch out for the birds if you eat there -- they are tenacious and fearless. Our bus driver was Allen.
