This was the best tour of our 27 day cruise. The local guide grew up in the area and new a lot about New Zealand. The tour was on a 12 passenger van. Both Rotorua and Hobbiton were excellent stops. The included lunch was high quality. The cruise line offered separate excursions to each of these stops for about the same price as this tour that went to both of them.
One of the best tours we've done while cruising around New Zealand. We first went to Te Puia where we've seen geyser and Maori performance, both very good. The highlight of the tour was hobbiton movie set. Really beautiful and worth seeing even for people that are not LOTR fans.
To reach both destinations and come back to the port we travelled for quite some time in a mini bus with very knowledgeable driver who told us a lot about the area and New Zealand in general during the drive.
Highly recommend this tour. It's a must see for all LOR and Hobbit movie fans. The gysers and mud pools were also phenomenal. Our tour guide Grant from Zeelandier tours was amazing and provided lots of details about the sights and general commentary on the Country's Maori history, geography, leading industries etc. He was well informed and kept the audience engaged. He was also quite funny with his anecdotes and stories. We were picked up and dropped off at the cruise terminal well within the timelines.
Mind boggling the scale of this film set
T is incredible and tha natural use of the land is too,
this is one to take for sure,
Amazing place, even in the rain. Definitely worth a visit.
Nate and Maria were great and knowledgeable hosts. The Hobbiton experience was well spaced out so you don't feel like you are there with so many other tourists. The meal there on site was fabulous. All the staff was great. The Maori cultural center was also very interesting. Great all day tour.
Must see Great day
Delightful tour as promised in the ad brochure. Would recommend this small number group excursion.
was a excellent tour for young and old, would do again
This tour was amazing!
