very good experience. Fantastic scenery. But limited time at rotorua. One more hour would be perfect as we missed the culture sites. we did not get to see the museum and the maori living. Lunch was so good.
Wonderful day. Matt entertained us with information about New Zealand Dairy economy. The three venues are well selected and you will love each one. A word of caution however do not sit in the last row of the bus or your back and neck will be in spasm the next day
Hobbiton was very good but it was too short and the guide rushed the tour.If you spend a few minutes too take a picture you may miss a lot of comments and behind stories from the guide.Waitomo was beautiful, it is somewhere you definitely go if you haven't seen glowworms.The driver was very friendly and helpful.
Of the the weeks of adventures in NZ, this ranks among the top. This place is beautiful and amazing. Well worth spending a day strolling among the Hobbit huts and hovels! Super scenic! Took tons of pictures!
Three must see activities that should not be missed. The day started out well with a hotel pick up and we headed to the Hobbiton adventure. Whether or not you have seen Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit movie series, definitely go check out this former movie set. The onsite Hobbiton guides are entertaining and the information is fascinating. From here we traveled to Rotorua where we started to experience poor guidance. We arrived at Te Puia, home to Pohutu Geyser where we were given 60 minutes to eat at the buffet and walk through it. After arriving at the restaurant and being seated the guide went to hang out with other tour guides and did not bother to help direct us through the geyser park after lunch as we saw other guides doing. We were not sure where to begin. We were given a map at the entrance, but none of the actual locations had a corresponding number that was on the map so we had difficulty figuring out where we were. In the end we did not have enough time to see everything at Te Puia, which was disappointing. Another 30 minutes would have allowed us to walk through the park and see the sites. Upon boarding the bus the guide said he needed to fill up with gas on the way to our last stop since he did not take care of this while we were eating lunch and walking through Te Puia. So we pulled into the gas station and after filling up the tank the guide admitted that he put in the wrong fuel (gas instead of diesel). We had to wait for a new bus to arrive putting us behind schedule, which fortunately only took about 20 minutes to arrive. But we had a 4pm appointment time at Waitomo Caves, but due to the fuel stop debacle we ended up not making it until 5pm. Fortunately the Waitomo Caves were well worth the wait. But the thing that really annoyed us was at the last stop we picked up two additional passengers that came from another tour traveling back to Auckland. The second bus that we had to switch to resulting from the gas mishap was a little smaller than the first, but the two new passengers were not directed by the guide to sit the in the last remaining open seats. Rather they took over seats where we had been sitting (and left our belongings) and they displaced us making the 2 hour ride back to Auckland most unenjoyable. We had to sit next to a couple that was ill and we were not fitting well in the seats. It made for a sour ending to the day.
Hobbiton was the most beautiful, scenic place to visit. Well worth the semi-long drive. The geysers at Rotourua was anti-climatic. It would have been better to schedule a mud bath, which it's famous for.
