It was an amazing day full of emotions! Started very early in the morning but worth every penny! From Hobbiton set to Rotorua it and #39;s a trip you can and #39;t miss!
This tour is well worth the full day adventure. You will enjoy the journey outside of Auckland to see all the lush green landscape. Hobbiton is beautiful and magical. Rotorua is beautiful and insightful.
It's very fund and convenient.
The minivan was very clean and our driver and guider was very nice.
It was long time driving but pleasant.
This was a great trip that I recommend.
Guide on Hobbiton was super. We got a lot of information about how movies were made, and lots of behind the scene information. Exciting.
The Hobbiton is made with incredible lot of detail. Fun to see in reality.
Rotorua is also a fascinating place with geyser and bubbling mud pool.
Boiling water. Interesting to see.
We also got to learn a little more about Maori culture. I come from the other side of the planet and thought it was interesting.
The drivers are also very good to tell about NZ history.
We visited a redwood forest.
hobbiton and rotorua were great , what's not is by 3pm we were finished and had to wait for the people who went to waitomo caves, we also had to drop off a couple at a hotel. We were literally waiting in a parking lot for a total of 1 hr doing nothing and an additional 30-40 mins going around town checking some lakes etc but obviously it's to burn time so we don't have to wait longer at the parking lot. If you can't amend this then I suggest you add wine tasting or some other activity. I keep thinking we could have been back in the hotel by 6pm but instead we got home 8pm super tired!
Thanks to our tour guide Mike, it was a very good experince. Hobbitton is like a wonderland : However we wait on the bus by wasting time for 2 hours as some other customers were on Caves Tour. It is unacceptable:
the driver hardly spoke it was too far no toilet stops on the way to hobbiton and at Rotorua we had to drive across to the caves to pick up people which took and extra 1hr or so it meant we were on the road longer. With no toilets to stop at all !!! cruel to do this to us not good try other tours
