While I wished for more time in both places, there is only so much time in the day. All in all a fantastic experience, the lunch in Hobbiton was plentiful and delicious, in true Hobbit style!

This was an amazing first day of exploring in New Zealand. Our bus driver Damian ? was Amazing!! He was almost over-the-top with the information he provided about New Zealand, including the history of the country and maori culture, current politics and core national values, and even what flavor ice-cream is popular among locals. It was really useful information to gain while visiting NZ and pretty great to have on the start of our trip so we knew things as we traveled and saw things. And of course, Hobbiton and the Waitomo Caves were both beautiful and enjoyable to visit. My only recommendation to make this tour perfect is to extend the overall time by about 15-20 minutes to allow more time to enjoy the otherwise fantastic lunch in Hobbiton. The lunch was extremely rushed for the size and type of sit-down meal. Other than that, everything was great!
