Great tour of the rainforest and the mountains, as well as the blacksand beach. David and Tony were guide and driver and were great. They were friendly, funny. I learned a lot about the unique New Zealand flora and fauna and its history. Would highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting Auckland!

We were collected from our place of work by Wayne who is a real character transported down to Hobberton. Well worth a visit. We had an excellent lunch. An all round absolute corker of a day. Can't reccommend it enough.

Absolutely loved this tour! Allan was a great guide and Dawn was a fantastic driver. Visited a lot of amazing places and learned a lot about New Zealand's ecosystem and the types of plants/trees that grow there. The tour was just long enough to make you exhausted, in a good way. :)

We were promptly picked up at our hotel in Aukland for a tour to Hobbiton. We had a stop along the way for snacks and bathroom break. The scenery along the way was beautiful and we were so lucky to have beautiful weather. The Hobbiton tour led by one of their guides was magical. We stopped at the green dragon... More

This short trip was the best decision we made with our concierge. We got to see Piha Beach, which was so beautiful, and the drive to the next destination (waterfalls/rainforest tour) was very pretty. Thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon during this tour and recommend it to others. A bonus was our fantastic driver Wayne, and his co-worker David. Wayne was full... More

After an early start our guide Rob took us on our Hobbiton tour. He was very informative and knowledgable. The service was excellent and all in all it was a fantastic day out. Highly recommended.

This was selected for us by Trailfinders as one of the best tours to the Coromandel Peninsula and it didn't disappoint. When guide Sean turned up to ferry only the two of us on the day in the minibus, combined with decent weather, Sean's excellent commentary and informed conversation plus the spectacular scenery, this tour couldn't fail. We visited Cathedral... More
