Fantastic Tour
Mar 2020 • Family
Andrew was an awesome tour guide! We were picked up at our resort and off we went. Andrew have a great commentary about NZ all along the drive. He remembered our names and made sure to engage us and ask questions to keep the conversation going.
The Glow Worms tour was awesome. It was better than I expected! Back in the bus and over to Hobbiton.
Hobbiton was everything you could hope for. Very magical and fun. Andrew kept us informed of our tour times and was very accommodating throughout.
Highly recommend New Zealand Discovery Tours.

This tour was fantastic - you get to see the real set of the Hobbit - lots of hobit holes and you learn some fascinating facts and trivia about hobits. Scenery is fantastic and afterwards at the green dragon is very fun.

Jan 2020 • Couples
Myself and girlfriend had an amazing time on this trip! Andy, our tour guide, was full of knowledge and made it extremely fun, telling us all about the fun facts and backgrounds to the rotorua and waitomo areas! The tour was very enjoyable and would definitely recommend to families, friends and strangers looking to make the most of their time in the North Island of New Zealand! If you’re a fan of the LOTR trilogy it’s a must do as you will not be disappointed!

Great tour and driver
Jan 2020
Andrew was our driver/guide for our small group tour of Waitomo and Hobibiton movie set tour. he gave us a lot of information of New Zealand, its culture, people and of the places we were going to visit. He is originally from Scotland but settled down in NZ. He was punctual and overall it was a 5 star trip. Both places are a must to see if you are in Rotorua.

Very punctual and thorough
Jan 2020
Our driver was very knowledgeable on random pieces of information about New Zealand and was very interesting to listen to. The communication leading up to the tour was very detailed. We were informed that we would be picked up two days before our tour at 7:40. The bus actually got there at 7:35. The whole trip was extremely punctual, which was great for my husband and I who operate in the same capacity.

The Glow Worm caves were great, our guide was new, but she tried hard. The caves themselves were a little busy, but it was still great. Children who can't keep quiet are not recommended (aka young babies)! There was a crying baby as we got on the boats who was asked to leave. They request that you remain very quiet during the boat part of the tour.

Hobbiton was great. It was nice that our bus driver took care of all the arrangements for both the Glow Worms and Hobbiton. All we had to do was show up. He had it all arranged and nothing missed a beat.

My husband and I don't usually do these types of tours because we've had experiences with annoying people or the tour running annoyingly late, but were pleasantly surprised about this tour.

We would do this one again.

This was a fantastic day trip to Waitomo Caves and Hobbiton as I feel that there were not as many options for a tour leaving from Rotorua (most were leaving from Auckland). Our guide from England was great and gave valuable information on the drives. It was very helpful that we were picked up right from our Airbnb. Thank you NZ tours, we would definitely book again!!

We even stopped to meet some ostriches on the way to the glow worms cave.Andrew was very attentive and made sure we were fully aware of all procedures at both venues and that we were comfortable, nothing was rushed, he was very friendly knowledgable and informative throughout the day. We rate this 10/10

Nov 2019 • Couples
If your interested in visiting the movie set from the hobbit and lord of the rings with that added fantasy of visiting the limestone caves and viewing the natural phenomenon of the glow worms then Andrew from New Zealand discovery tours is your perfect choice. Insightful/knowledgeable/educational and down to earth. He was the perfect host and reminded me of my dad who seemed to fill a void in my heart. Thank you sincerely.
