Flexi Tours Nz seriously exceeded my expectations! Ron was super awesome in describing Auckland and after dropping me at the hobbiton, I got to know that I'm the only one going back to rotorua, so I had another guide and his name is Rick. I have to give credits to him as he went extra mile to explain everything to me. I was really impressed with his stories. Even I was the only one going to rotorua, the trip was not cancelled. If you're in Nz, look for this tour, they're really amazing especially Rick!

Amazing trip. Awesome organization. The Hobbiton Movie Set is a magical place. Lunch was very good. The Waitomo Caves was truly overwhelming, we hadn't seen anything like this before. The Te Puia Thermal Reserve in Rotorua was also very interesting. It's a long tour bu worth every part of it. We highly recommend it.

So much to see and do on this trip. Guide was great and very informative. Wish we would have had more time at some of these locations but, completely understandable for the distance away from Auckland. The Glowworm caves were beautiful and the boat ride through them were fascinating. Hobbiton was a beautiful site. The guides through the village were very informative about what is currently going on in the village and what happened before, during, and after filming. Rotorua was a fun stop seeing the geysers and mud pits.

A well planned tour, a tad hectic though! Time at Hobbiton and Waitomo was sufficient as the tours there are a guide conducted tour of fixed time, however, could do with more time at Rotorua. Tour lasts for about 14 hours so need to be prepared with comfortable clothing, food, water and power banks!

Perfect and long one day trip! Great way to see many things in a single day. Would've enjoyed more time in Rotorua, without a doubt, but technically it may be difficult. If you're short on time, this is your tour!
