Excellent,excellent,excellent. Best tour we have ever been on. There were 4 of us on the tour and we can’t speak highly enough of it. From start to finish. Best value for money. Guide Peter was excellent and friendly. Rotorua was sooo interesting and informative. Hobbiton was exceptional.

Buddy was a caring and careful driver who provided reasonable commentary during our journeys to Hobbiton & Rotorua Geysers where there were separate guides. It was a good full day excursion covering the major attractions in the area and well suited for cruise ship travellers.

Had a great day. Hobbiton was fantastic. Well organised and worth the visit. Also enjoyed the Maori Village and geyser stop. Plenty time to get us back on the cruise ship.

excellent excursion! so happy we booked this. everyone was so wonderful. our guide, Perer, was awesome!

Allow a little more time as traffic coming back to Tauranga slowed down return journey
