I loved to see Hobbiton. It is amazing how detailed everything is. Lunch was good as was the ale.
The cave was interesting, but it made for a long day. If you have the time go to the caves, if not only go to Hobbiton.
The hotel pick up went well. I made the reservation before I knew where we were staying. We were within walking distance of Sky City had we known that we would have slept another 1/2 hour and walked to that pick up point.
Great cruise, very different and informative. Wonderful experience
This was a great value way to enjoy the adventure activities that can be found in Taupo. We started with the cruise on a rainy miserable day and while we knew the helicopter and jet boat were unlikely the staff at all three activities made it so easy to book them in for the next day day. Highly recommend this as a great value combo!
Although it was a very long day the trip was great. Our driver Damian was a wealth of knowledge and told us things about NZ the entire bus ride to Hobbiton.
The tour travelled to all the good sites and buses came fairly regularly. The double decker bus was great some of the others were a little older. The biggest issue was the moving of the bus stop located near the port as whilst it wasn't too far from its original spot, it did get a bit much for my elderly mother to walk as well as my young son to walk the extra distance.
Doing what: Auckland Hop-on Hop-off Tour
A long day, but a well organised tour, worth while experiencing.
Our tour guide was TERRIBLE! We went on 2/18, older gentleman and didn and #39;t state his name/wear name tag. He was the worst driver. Slammed on his brakes constantly and made for a very uncomfortable ride. No commentary on NZ as he and #34;wanted to focus on his driving and #34;. Book tours independently of Viator
So much fun! This was my first zip-line experience and I was a bit nervous, but was put at ease immediately upon meeting our guides. They were kind, professional and informative! I felt very safe the entire time. The views were gorgeous and the forest walks between zip lines were very cool, as well. Definitely a highlight of our Auckland trip!
My wife went. she's a fan and loved it.
experience was good
If you are a Lord of the Rings fan, even if your not, experience this beautiful countryside. Quite a memory!
Delightful trip to Hobbiton and our driver, Mike was a great source of information about NZ esp. Sites along the route to Matamata. Nice rest stop between and enough time to stretch the legs, have a bite to eat. Once at Hobbiton, Mike also filled us in on little side stories about the farmer, the land, movie tidbits etc.which rounded out the tour. Being in a small group was a plus. We got to know our fellow travelers. The early morning pick up time was well,worth it and we enjoyed it very much as Hobbiton is a magical place.
