Hobbiton is amazing, and the stories the guide shares is fascinating! Rotorua geysers are a spectacular sight + seeing a Kiwi was a treat! Waitomo Caves were made special thanks to the guides commentary!

This day was amazing. The guide was really great and very informative - a special thanks to him. The three destinations were just so good and I saw so much in one day. We covered a lot of ground and I saw so much - not only the three destinations but also the interesting facts and sites along the way.
