This was a definite highlight of my trip. Stephen was by far the best tour guide I had witnessed in my two months of visiting New Zealand. He was funny, professional and very knowledgeable about the various areas that we visited. Visiting Hobbiton was definitely a fun part of the trip, but in all honesty Stephen made the short stops along the way some of the best parts of the whole thing. Cannot recommend this company enough, an absolute gem.

Absolutely fantastic day with Stephen. Can not recommend enough. We booked the Hobbiton Tour through Adventure Tours as the Cruise option was fully booked. So glad this happened. Stephen was waiting for us exactly where he said he would be. The mini bus was so comfortable. The on board snacks provided were good but the home made Brownies made by his wife were the best brownies I have ever tasted... worth booking just for these!! The extra stops on the way to and from Hobbiton was great added extras (at no extra cost) will definitely book with these again if we are ever lucky enough to visit New Zealand again.

Stephen went out of his way for me to experience this tour to fit in with my travel plans even though it did not look like it would happen at the last minute, provided lovely snacks and he even gave me extra to take home, informative information and was well organised at all the places we stopped at. He was a very professional tour operator. I really appreciated everything he did. Highly recommended! Sue

Stephen was a wonderful tour guide. I WhatsApp him before signing up and he was prompt and informative. Reason: the cruise ship we were on Majestic Princess arrived later in the morning in Tauranga and we could not get off until around 11:30a, but he was able to plan that day's tour to fit our schedule, even though the group tour mostly had others not from the boat. He took us to a honey shop and had a free scoop of ice cream as part of tour (nice!), and there were baked brownies and water bottles to keep us refreshed on the bus. Not only did we see Tolkien's Hobbiton as in a dream (if your dream includes 100s of fellow fans :-) roaming in timed group-sized clumps, actually it wasn't too bad if you are patient to get your photos), but we also enjoyed McLaren Falls and a waterfall hike to another waterfall, and lookout point. He dropped us off in Tauranga so we could walk and browse the shops on way back to the boat. Thanks Stephen!
