Stephen was an excellent tour guide from start to finish, he was punctual at pickup and drop off which was important as we were limited with time due to being on a cruise ship. We stopped several times on the way to Hobbiton and saw some waterfalls, viewing areas and also a honey shop. These were all pleasant surprises, topped off by Stephen buying everyone ice cream and having homemade brownies on the bus. Myself and my partner had an amazing day and would recommend anyone looking for a good day to book through Adventure & Cultural Tours.

Stephen is the ideal guide! He has humour, knowledge and is upbeat throughout the excursion. He contacted us before the trip and he made sure that we won't get lost. Honestly, it's the best such arrangement I've ever made. During the ride, he provided us with a lot of details not only for the Hobbiton and LOTR, but also for the Tauranga area and NZ in general. I highly recommend the excursion and Stephen in particular! Thanks a lot mate!

Best tour guide ever! Steve is a class act. Such a comfortable bus ride. Great knowledge of New Zealand & Hobbiton. Highly recommend booking him as your guide. Mossop Honey shop was a great stop. Steve goes above and beyond providing delicious gluten free brownies, candy, and drinks. He overheard me mention avocados to my son and made a special stop for us to get some. This tour was full of wonderful stops.

The countryside gerri g to Hobbiton set the mood for the beautiful spent exploring 40 Hobbit holes. ( Keep in mind they are facades and you do not go into movie set indoor areas.) Attention to detail to make the homes different was great. Guides gave extra information about the making of the movie and about details in the story development I did not know.

This tour was amazing! Our guide was super all day having plenty of info, kept it fun, relaxed, and made us the best brownies and brought the best home picked plums for us! And bought great ice cream from the honey shop! Amanda was great! Hobbiton was awesome we loved it! Super natural well worth a visit!
