loved this excursion, I'm not a lord of the rings fan and have only seen the first movie, but it was a very good tour and very interesting. The hobbiton farm was stunning, and even in the wet weather it was lovely. Very informative guides. Quite a bit of walking around the hobbiton farm area but well worth it.

OMG it was stinking amazing to see Hobbiton, and really enjoyed the geysers and Maori show. We loved how the guide gave us tid bits for what to do and look for. She was great.

We enjoyed this tour immensely. Our tour guide/driver, Julie from Shore Trips and Tours, was very knowledgeable and gave use interesting facts about the area as we traveled. Hobbiton was amazing and the guide was terrific. There is a lot of walking up and down hills, but it was worth every step. I would have liked the tour to be a little shower pace. The Te Puia site was magnificent! Julie really knew her stuff. She was a terrific guide while seeing the geyser and mudflats. This Combo was well worth the money and great for all ages. This was our first purchase with Viator, but not our last! We look forward to booking with Viator again. Thank you.

Very full and fun day with a trip to the geysers at Te Puia and seeing a Maori show, then off to Hobbiton for a tour, shopping and a pint at the Green Dragon. The hobbit holes were spectacular and so well maintained. Our guide was very knowledgeable, both on the bus and at Hobbiton. A must do day!

This tour had to be one of the best tours I've ever taken. My tour leader was fantastic. Knew all about the sights and shared her knowledge with us. We were a small group so it was great.

The trip to hobbiton was amazing. Even if you have not seen the movies you should go. Just a magical place.
Te Puia is such an interesting place. Glad we managed to squeeze both in. Kudos to Chris our guide. Very informative and managed to get the full trip in and back to the ship on time. I would highly recommend this trip. A full day but well worth it,

Hobbit land portion was great. Having spoken to someone who did a Maorii experience tour with someone else, we missed allot at Rotarua. Guess there is only so much you can do in a day. Guide was excellent.

Our guide, Julie, was lovely. She knew a lot about he countryside we were traveling through as well as the sites we were visiting. She also accommodated us completely so that we didn't miss a thing despite our ship being hours late to dock due to low tides. Thank you for a fabulous day.
