We had a wonderful time and especially enjoyed Hobbiton, which was much larger than we had anticipated. Our guide did a very good job of adding both detail and color. Rotorua was interesting as well and we were fortunate enough to see one of the geysers go off while we were there. Our tour driver (you will spend 2-3 hours in the van) was more of a driver than a guide, adding little to the road time. Also, our information had shown this as a 7 hr excursion, when in fact it was closer to 9 hours, with no road problems or other issues that would have elongated the time. We had plenty of time, so it was not an issue, but if we had been closer to our cruise departure time, it could have been a real problem.

This is a long day from Auckland. Keep that in mind - since multiple stops require timed reservations, you’re going to be limited at Rotorua. That being said, it’s a pretty fun day to go out and see all the places and hit them all in a day. Our tour guide was very friendly and chatted about New Zealand, it’s history and also gave us details about where we were going. The van itself had AC, comfortable seats that recliner, and was clean. They showed up when they said they’d get us, and dropped us off around when they said we’d be done. I’d highly recommend this tour to anyone - but just keep in mind hitting all three in day means you’ve got to stick to tight schedule.

We had a wonderful time! FlexiTours was highly organized and super punctual. All 3 sites were amazing and and the lunch buffet was excellent quality. Although, it was a long day, we really enjoyed chatting with our driver/tour guide (Mr. Kelly). He was very professional, personable, and highly knowledgable. He definitely gets a 5*!!!

Buddy was a caring and careful driver who provided reasonable commentary during our journeys to Hobbiton & Rotorua Geysers where there were separate guides. It was a good full day excursion covering the major attractions in the area and well suited for cruise ship travellers.

Our guide, Grant, was so full of knowledge!! He not only drove the van, but also was the tour guide. Because we were such a small group, he gave us a lot of individual attention. He was funny, and as hands-on, or hands-off, as we wanted him to be. We had a great time
