Hobbiton Movie set and Wai-O-Tapu,Rotorua

Hello cheeky kiwi team, this one’s a bit late coz we we were busy for the wedding. What can I say, it was an amazing experience for us,my wife and i had this tour with kreig last 17October, not only it was amazing for the beautiful scenery of both hobbiton and geothermal site but kreig was the best tour guide ever! Where can u find a tour guide that knows a lot, only with cheeky kiwi and only kreig. He’s the best, I hope anyone reading this please go book your tours with cheeky kiwi and ask for kreig, he’s the best really he’s the best, never a dull moment. We learned a lot, be it onboard on the road while he’s driving or while on foot on our tour, about everything you need to know maori, NZ, geothermal stuff even about whittakers 😊 i think we felt we are Kiwi’s already at the end of the day having known all these great information Kreig told us 😊 thank you Kreig, thank you for everything, thankyou for the “seat on the right side in the bus” guide, the perfect picture spot outside the green dragon pub, letting us go to your secret spot, for taking care of us and making sure we’re comfortable. thanku for the wedding gift it means a lot, thank you for the most fun filled day of our NZ vacation. You are the best Kreig. Go book cheeky kiwi, its the best. 😊

Great but incomplete

The day and the tour were wonderful, totally great. I am just a little bit disappointed because the ad included Waiotapu and we didn't go there.

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!
