Hotel pick-ups are from the below hotels only, starting up to 20 mins before your tour time. Please see below what group your hotel is in and what your pick-up time is. Please be waiting in your accommodation's lobby or outside no later than this time to avoid missing your pick up. Guides have multiple pick-ups so can on occasion run up to 10 minutes late. Guides cannot wait for late passengers as it will mean the entire group is at risk of missing out, so please be waiting and ready (5-10 minutes before your listed time is highly recommended) Group 1: 20 minutes before tour start time.

Considering it is 2 , almost 3 hours driving each way from Auckland, plus the waiting around at the entrance / car park for your turn to enter , is it all worth the time and effort?
It is must for any LOTR fan, capped off by a pint at the Green Dragon.
