Потрясающе!

Тур в Хоббитон и Пещеры Вайтомо я забронировала себе на День Рождения и день удался! Оба места фантастические, наш гид Саймон - необыкновенно внимательный и заботливый человек и компания, с которой мы посещали эти места - была приятная и дружелюбная! Спасибо огромное всем, кто был со мной в этот день 18.02.2019. Всем удачи и огромное спасибо Саймону!

Awesome experience!

Awesome experience! Tour is amazing, you have to wake up early but the best thing is that you arrive first at hobbiton and there are 0 people there (only hobbits :)) so the pics are great! Thanks team!

Great trip

I was not that interested in Hobbiton when booking the trip. Once I got there it was pretty cool. The Glow Worm caves were great. Matt our guide was incredibly nice and informative. He was easy to talk to and approachable. I'm glad I went in a small group.
