Fantastic!

Yesterday my husband and I did a fantastic double tour of Hobbiton and Wai-O-Tapu tour with our tour guide Kreig. Kreig was great, friendly and informative. He knows all the best picture taking spot and all the little info where to go and what to expect on the tour. He looked after us really well providing us some snacks, water and laughter! Overall, I would recommend this to everyone who want to do this tour!

Good deal + Fantastic tour!! Thanks Bookme!

Was firstly impressed with our driver/guide's prompt pick up from our chosen location. Louise's safe driving then brought us nice and early to Hobbiton ahead of the crowds which turned out as a huge advantage for us as people started flooding in. Needless to say, we had the set to ourselves and took awesome photos. Despite it being a full day tour, Louise was highly organised yet also accommodating to our requests for toilet breaks and some time to stretch/rest. Extremely happy that the tour didn't feel rushed. Plus, her awesome commentary about the sites we visited and New Zealand in general kept us curious throughout the day. More power to Cheeky Kiwi Travel!
