We could not have asked for more! Our guide Andre was fantastic! He is extremely knowledgeable,a very safe driver and has a great sense of humor. It was a long ride back and forth from Auckland, but Andre made the time fly by. If you're LOTR enthusiasts like us, you don't want

Our tour guide Lance was spectacular. Prompt, pleasant and entertaining. He shares freely his knowledge of NZ and the Maori culture. Well worth the price for Hobbiton, the buffet lunch and the cultural performance.

There were 3 of us visiting from Northern California and decided to take this tour. I was a bit skeptical as I'm not a fan of tours (especially all day ones) or Hobbit stuff. I LOVED the tour and Lance (Our trusty guide & driver) made it fun, interesting, and comfortable.

We started our tour with Jack leaving at 6 am. It was well worth the early departure because we were able to stop and experience a beautiful sun rise. Our guide was a wealth of knowledge and very fun. We also were the first group of the day for Hobbiton. Snacks were provided.

What a wonderful day! It is a long one, so I was happy that we had a great tour guide, Lance. He was very knowledgeable about New Zealand and it’s history. There is quite a bit of driving involved, but the time passes quick and the small tour bus was comfortable. Lance pointed

Response from CK_Travel_Queenstown, Marketing Executive at Hobbiton & Rotorua Small Group Tour incl Te Puia, Hangi Buffet Lunch & Concert
Responded 7 May 2019
We're delighted to hear your Cheeky Kiwi tour was the highlight of your holiday and that you enjoyed Hobbiton & Te Puia! Getting there early to Hobbiton and getting amazing photos with hardly anyone in them is definitely one of the bonuses of leaving early in the morning, and also being able to get two amazing attractions into one day. Hopefully we can welcome you on board another Cheeky Kiwi Tour from either Queenstown or Auckland again soon!
