The tour of the set was excellent. The place is a well oiled machine from ticket office to bus ride etc. Our tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable about the movies and all other aspects . The movie set was awesome and the gardens amazing . Even if you’re not a movie buff the experience and sheer brilliance of PJ et al is totally worth it . Having a drink ( free) at the Green Dragon ???? was fantastic.

Brilliant experience from first contact through email to the half day 1pm-6pm tour itself. Syrus, our initial contact, ended up being our tour guide as well and he was amazing: helpful, knowledgeable and on the day was friendly, informative, a great photographer and thoughtful - for instance, he kept an easy walking pace for my parents who are in their sixties. With a toddler and 3 adults, it was only a few extra dollars to book a private tour and I'm so glad we did. It was great to pick and choose the tourist spots to go to without the confines of a set-in-stone itinerary and though the plan was to see two waterfalls and two beaches, this turned out to be a bit over-ambitious on my part! Syrus was really flexible on the day though and happy to go at a much more leisurely pace and we ended up going to Kite Kite falls and the black sand beach. On the way there, there were stop offs at some beautiful scenic spots and though a late request on our part, an afternoon tea break was even slotted in at a lovely cafe just before it closed. The walk to Kite Kite falls took about an hour with a toddler - bring a carrier to make the walk quicker and easier as there are stairs. Bring a spare towel and flip flops for when you get to the waterfall, too. The beach has a car park right next to it and there's a cafe to stop off for a drink, chips or some ice cream. The private vehicle came with a baby car seat and it was comforting to know the car journey was only 40 minutes away from Sydney where pick up and drop off from our accommodation was included. Based in Auckland, this was one of the very few tours available which is less than an hour from the city. And doing a private tour meant the afternoon of sightseeing was done at a much more relaxed pace making it all the more enjoyable and so memorable. I'd completely recommend Syrus from Tour Bro. and would very happily use them again - perhaps for our future South Island trip :)

Excellent service by Black Car Transfers & Tours!!! Kris Lal is the epitome of what anyone could ever want and more. Kris picked us up at the airport in a beautiful, immaculately clean car. Not only does he give excellent service but with a warm, kind, friendly experience he would give to his own family. We were in NZ when our cruise ship was cancelled and the ports were closed. Kris took care of us by giving us a short tour of Auckland and then getting us to the airport to return home to the USA I don't know what we would have done without him. And to add to that, he and his lovely wife even offered to put us up in their home if we could not get a flight home What more could anyone ask for. Thank you again, Kris! Frank & Kathy

A fabulous tour. Picked up on time (if a little early thank you), a fascinating trip down with plenty of information and arrived in time for the first tour of Hobbiton. What a fascinating place and attention to detail amazing. Lunch and then back to Auckland on a different route with more interesting discussion. Would highly recommend this professional and friend,y tour company.

We booked an Auckland airport transfer on Viator. Received automated emails confirming the reservation and two more immediately prior to the transfer date. Kiwi Segway was a no-show at the airport Did not get a reply from emails or cell phone messages, so had to arrange for transport at the airport. Eventually received a message: "Had to cancel. Sorry."
