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.
An excellent day trip with plenty of time at both Wai-o-tapu & Te Puia geothermal parks. Tour guide Grant is a lovely man & an excellent tour guide. He was very informative along the drive and in Rotorua and he was very careful to accommodate everyone's needs while also making sure we were at the geyser Pohutu in plenty of time to watch it errupt. There was plenty of time at both parks and a lovely hangi buffet lunch at Te Puia overlooking Pohutu. Beautiful views of Lake Rotorua on the return trip. Grant also made great time on the return trip even though he had to make a detour to avoid a traffic issue. I highly recommend this tour.
It was really nice trip. It would make it excellent if the price would be a bit less than I paid. The guide was attentive, had a good sense of humour and entertained us all trip. The van was not completely full, and it made journey even more comfy, as you spend a lot of time in the car. Guide had a good organisation skills, therefore the drops off and pick ups were really smooth and quick. It would be nice to have a bit longer time for the second activity (for me was Spa).
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*!!!
Reallly enjoyed theday but spent 2 hours on a part of the tour we weren't aware of, when 6 no people on our buse went to the spa. We had two buses one left after lunch to return to Tauranga our buse arrived back to late to explore the town which we had planned to do.
