Really great trip. Chose tour as a day excursion from a cruise, booked independent of cruise line. Very knowledgeable driver, took us to some extra destinations on the way. Well worth the trip.
Our tour took us through NZ countryside along rolling green hills splattered with sheep and dairy farms and kiwi vineyards.
Ian, our guide, was quite informative and entertaining. Our first stop was a local honey store. Hobbiton proved to be what we expected and more. We had a young guide who gave us some wonderful tidbits of information about the movies. The film set was quite picturesque. The driver stopped briefly at a kiwi vineyard on the way back which was truly beautiful.
Well organised on time.
Very good driver who had lived in the area for a long time and as a consequence gave us good information.
Hobbiton was great.
This trip was really fun. We had a number of minor excursions during the trip which added to the enjoyment and Hobbiton itself was lovely. Would not make any purchases in the onsite shop as everything seemed very expensive. The trip around the site was first class and very well managed, We had a really good day and again the cost of booking was so much better value that going through the cruise company official site, Guides were able to explain locations within the films and Hobbiton is well worth a visit. Also managed a beer or two at The Green Dragon.
Love... love ... loved this!!!! So wonderfully amazing. Thank you for providing such a fantastic tour and the grounds have to be seen to be believed. If you go to NZ you have to go here!!! An absolute must see - whether a fan or not!
This deserves six stars. We booked through Viator the supplier being Shore Trips Tours. For a start it was about 100 cheaper than the ship price and they gaurantee to get you back on time. We were not particularly interested in Hobbits but we enjoyed this trip very much. The scenery and gardens and organization were superb. Our guide, Joseph ,was able to comment and explain it all in a knowledgeable and interesting way.. The pace up hill and down dale was not too fast, but well ordered. There is a fair bit of walking but small electric carts are available for the challenged, at a price. It truly is a magic place , don't miss it, Well worth the money and a unique experience..
tour guide did a great job and even brought us to two other locations on the way back to our cruise ship so we could see more of tauranga! The cost was well worth what we got out of it!
Once off the ship it was hard identifying the crew from Viator.
ONCE OFF THE SHIP it WAS VERY HARD TO IDENTIFY THE CREW FROM VIATOR.
Tour was incredible, do not miss. If you are a fan of LOTR go do the Hobbiton tour. Our guide from the hobbiton once we got on the farm was great, so informative. Great that was we about 30 of us. The Dragon inn with the included ale or cider was nice. The Manuka honey stop was good too.
