The Hobbiton movie set is a must see for Lord of the Rings/Hobbit fans. It’s primarily a exterior set, but the drive from downtown Auckland to see the set and surrounding areas was beautful. Our driver was very entertaining and informative. This tour was limited in size, so there were only 11 of on the tour van, which made it a more personal experience. The glowworm caves don’t sound like much, but were an awesome natural phenomenon that you are not likely to experience anywhere else in the world.
My party of six went to this all day trip and we enjoyed it a lot. Louise, our guide from Auckland scenic Tour was on time,kindness and very informative given us many details. We loved this trip and recommended it to everyone visiting New Zealand, North island. I wish to return there one day to expend more time in this beautiful country.
This is a great tour to take. Hopefully you're lucky enough to have a driver named David. He was fantastic! Hobbiton was magical and seeing the glow worms was something you have to experience. We took the small group tour and the van was very comfortable with large windows. Definitely book this one! Try and leave as early in the morning as you can to avoid the crowds. We had a 6 a.m. pickup and we're very glad we did.
What a beautiful location. Our driver was superb. As birders, she made sure to point out NZ finest as we traveled. There are lots of people that visit, and our driver made sure we got there early to avoid the crowds. Awesome sight to visit and learn about. The caves were not disappointing. Respect the natives who care for the site, and leave the pictures up to them.
My husband and I did this trip while on our honeymoon, and it was wonderful! Our driver, Louise, was super friendly, professional, fun, and had a wealth of knowledge about the surrounding area. She was outstanding! The trip ran very efficiently and we had time to do everything. The included lunch was so yummy, and we really loved that we were on the 1st Hobbiton tour of the day so we were able to get spectacular photos without other visitors in the way. It looked like our small group were the only ones there! I highly recommend booking with this company!
It was a really nice tour. The tour guide and driver was really nice and attentive. Got some cool pictures on our short stop when sun was coming up. Hobbiton set was better than I thought it was gonna be. We were there for the first tour of the day and it was nice because an hour later we saw a lot more people getting there. So we were able to take all the pictures we wanted without having a bunch of people around. Couple drinks and lunch was included. We also stopped for some really good ice cream at end of day.
Both the places are worth to explore, if you are planning to do a tour in Auckland. On Hobbiton movie set we didn't have enough time to take pics as tour guide was rushing even though we took the very 1st tour of the day as it will be crowed latter part of the day.
They start around 9.00am onwards. (If I am not mistaken). We stayed in the Auckland CBD area and picked us around 6.15am. They are timing are quite perfect and tour guide was so friendly. Recommend to go earlier as possible.
Waitomo Glowworm caves, was below the expected levels. Totally opposite to the picture shown in the package. But still worthy to explore.
