This was an excellent day out. Keith, our driver and guide made everything easy for us. He was informative and helpful without overwhelming us with information. There were a couple of other minor stops along the way but the highlight by far was Hobbition movie set. We left Keith

Thanks for your kind comments, will pass them on to your driver/guide Keith who is now doing a different job driving the big trucks involved in the Kiwifruit picking operation now that COVID-19 has closed down all tourism activities. How things have changed in the last few weeks. Stay safe and well where ever you are. Regards Ian

Hi Steve, yes that was a very sad day for us here in Tauranga, when the White Island Volcano erupted. Apologies for the mix up with the time changes, we had 410 passengers on tour with us that day [27 tour vehicles] so we were dealing with a large number of bookings and this one i think from memory was changed to the earlier time to suit the ships time in port, but then we had to change your tour time again as Hobbiton had no room at the time we wanted, our operations manager failed to make the final change known to you. There was also an issue where the van you were to travel on had been booked full, but there were some passengers who really needed two seats each!. So that was when i stepped in and took your party of 4 to Hobbiton in your own vehicle. So again sorry about the time stuff up. When i got back to the office around 4pm that's when we heard about the tragedy at White Island, we then spent until 3am moving crew and the passengers impacted by the event to and from Whakatane Hospital, with more transfers the next. Pleased you enjoyed the Hobbiton tour though. Regards Ian

We booked a private family tour for seven from the port to Hobbiton. The online booking went smoothly with no issues and met at the port with a smooth sign in process. Our driver, Jeff, did a fantastic job. The van was spacious, clean, and bottled water was provided. Jeff was

We had a wonderful day with our tour guide Wendy. She was absolutely lovely, trying her best for us to see as much as we could in the time we had. She was there waiting as we got off our ship, and took us to see the local honey. Our group of 10 actually really enjoyed this

Went to Hobbiton with a small group but ended up on a big bus - so, don't spend the extra money to arrive in a van. However, our guide, Peter, was such fun and very informative. I particularly liked how they showed snippets of the movies to remind us of different scenes we
