  • Hobbiton and Waitomo Caves tours are run by local guides and are of a set duration and you get exactly the same time as other visitors who are visiting less places in a day, but with Rotorua you only have approximately 1.5 hours in the area. If you have more time available and are particularly interested in Rotorua we reccomend you either book our overnight tour to the same 3 destinations or buy 2 tours splitting the destinations over 2 days.but putting all 3 destinations in one day is cost effective and for many people just seeing a geyser and a taste of Rotorua is more than enough

Kelly was a great guide
John
, Mar 2020
Great 3 stop tour! Kelly was a great host and very kind to fellow passengers that made him repeat information when they didn't listen the first time. The caves were other worldly! Biggest geyser in southern hemisphere. Hobbiton movie set was a great tour too! Well worth the price! Take a pillow to nap between stops.

Great value tour

Our driver Ron was very knowledgeable and informative which made the tour enjoyable. Overall the tour was good value for money. The buffet lunch at Rotorua is plentiful with a wide variety of good quality tasty food. It is a long day tour but there is plenty to see and do that breaks up the time spent traveling on the bus.

A great and well organised tour for these three must-see places

This tour shows all these three must-see places in the best way possible. Our guide/driver Daryl was super in providing information on all these three stops and gently organized all of us in the tour so that we could be on time in all those stops. He is knowledgeable, amiable and a true gentleman. We were very happy and satisfied with this 13 hour tour.

Our guide Darryl ( hope spelling his name correct) was the most efficient guide I have ever seen. We covered three major points in a day and he explained everything so well that we still keep on thinking about the trip. I am going to recommend about this to my friends and family. One of the Best guided trip!

Hobbiton is amazing, and the stories the guide shares is fascinating! Rotorua geysers are a spectacular sight + seeing a Kiwi was a treat! Waitomo Caves were made special thanks to the guides commentary!

A must see for lord of the rings fans. Beautiful place! The worm caves were just OK. The bus was comfortable. The guide didn't do too much talking, which was a shame for a long drive. There are some very nice but super quick stops along the way. The scenery is breathtaking.
