If you wish to have a small group on an excellent tour with articulate, fun and experienced tour guides in an air conditioned small bus this is the outfit. On-time pick up, frequent stops for water, bathrooms etc. and a lunch stop (not included in price). This tour included Auckland, the surrounding areas and National Parks including beaches. A very...

We had two days in Auckland before going on a cruise. Bush and Beach was a great way of learning about Auckland especially when you have Wayne as your driver/guide/entertainer/comedian. Tons of information on Auckland and it's history - very enjoyable.

I went on the Coromandel trip and it was truly one of the best things I did on my trip to Auckland. They give you plenty of time at each location to take a lot of pictures and explore. The small group is really a fantastic part of it. We had only 4 people on our tour. The views are... More

It was a great trip, which I recommend to everybody visiting Auckland and surroundings. Taking almost a whole day, it's a wonderful and very informative experience definitely not to miss. The group was small, the guide was very informative, we visited several places surrounding Auckland. At the end of the trip we were invited for tea and cookies. Good value... More

I had been looking forward to this trip and wasn't disappointed. A wonderful experience from start to finish. Our guide Wayne had us laughing out loud with his infectious humour, and his knowledge of the surrounding area and Hobbiton itself made the journey so interesting. The magical place was just that and the photos I have are amazing. The glass... More

We started this excursion in Auckland, so it was a bit of a drive to our 1st stop, Cathedral Cave, in Coromandel Peninsula. We had 3 couples in the van, driven by Dawn, who gave us some interesting tidbits on New Zealand history and culture. It was raining a bit when we arrived at the walkway down to the arch,... More

We did a Wilderness adventure with this group and it was one of our favorite tours of the 5 weeks we were away . Our narrator Ron and driver Rob took us on an adventure to the mountain tops, bush, kitekite trails, and then to the beach. It was breathtaking seeing the ocean and so clear. Both guys were so...

We are so lucky to find Bush and Beach to take us out to hobbiton. Yes. They picked up real early at 630am, but it also means you get to leisurely walk around hobbiton without hundreds of other visitors surrounding you. They really think of everything. They made a quick stop after about an hour drive for bathroom and stretching... More

Hi there, Thank you for your awesome review of our HObbiton Express Tour - it is definitely worth the early start! So pleased you enjoyed your tour with us - it is always great to see that people who aren't really fans enjoy the set. It really is a spectacular place! Kind regards Krystle More
