It would have been a perfect day if the weather had cooperated. Still I had a great time. The drivers from and to Auckland were pleasant and safe drivers. The tour of the Hobbiton set would have been better if it were possible to be in smaller groups of maybe 4 or 5 rather than the bus full of about 20 that each group was composed of, but that´s not on you.
Chris (driver/quide with Auckland and Beyond) was great! Got us there and back again in a timely manner with humor and care. Got to Hobbiton and it seemed everyone working there knew and liked him, from the other drivers to the guides showing us around the movie set. Highly recommend you continuing working with A&B in the future.
Shuttle from Customs and Commerce was helpful and efficient. If you are short on time, it is possible to jettison through and see most things in under an hour. Save time for the penguins-a highlight for us. The moving walkway is generally packed, be prepared.
They get huge crowds, and they know how to manage the visits to accommodate them. While you may meet up and wait at a key location on the tour, it is mostly your own group. Besides all the cool sites and information, the countryside is fabulous to view.
Touring Hobbiton was a unique experience. Despite the 2.5 hour transit each way, the tour was well worth the expenditure of time. The attention to detail of the setting and dwellings was impressive. Highly recommended for any fan of the LOTR series.
