We had an excellent time on our wine tour with Lance. He was warm, friendly, and hilarious and made a special effort to make us comfortable, take photos for us, and share cool factoids about the island. I would absolutely recommend you do this tour. The wine was world-class, the guide was lovely, and the lunch at the end was outstanding. Great value for money. Thanks, Lance!
Jo was the most thoughtful and informative host. We absolutely enjoyed our tour and would definitely recommend it. All the vineyards we visited were outstanding, especially Mudbrick Vineyard with gardens and views just as beautiful as one we visited in the south of France years ago. The lunch included at the end was also really good.
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.
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.
The Hobbiton experience tied all of the Tolkien movies and books together and put us into the movie itself. It allowed visualization of the book.
