A great overview of the north island

Our tour was conducted by Flexitours. Over the course of two days, we were seamlessly handed off to four different guides, three of whom were outstanding. On parts of the trip, we were the only ones in the van so the personalized attention we got was amazing and appreciated. Hobbiton was delightful for the setting. and the attention to detail, even for visitors who might not be familiar with Tolkien. Rotorua will be especially interesting to those who have not seen Yellowstone in the US. Our accommodation and food were standard and quite adequate to the trip. We were glad to have done it all over two days rather than one long one.

Viator excellent again

Viator has provided exceptional service in each country and with each trip. The subcontractors they use are also of high quality. In this case they used flexitoursNZ. Great service, I left something on in one of the vans and with lots of logistics they got it back to me. The Mitai cultural show was the best cultural performance I have every seen. Each of the performers was passionate about showing us a little of the Maori culture. I would highly recommend this trip, it was great to stay overnight and spread out the activities.

Very well organized and managed!

We were put on a different group for various leg of the tour as participants opted for different options. Yet arrangements were very good and we were always told clearly what would happen next. We liked everything - from Hobbiton, to geysers and buffet lunch (one of our best meals in NZ!), to the glowworm cave, except the Mouri (Mitai) traditional show - the dinner wasn't great, and it dragged on for too long. We do recommend the 2-day instead of 1-day tour though if you have the time to spare as the Thermal Wonderland is also worth visiting. Thanks to all the guides who were super professional and helpful - Chris, Fran, Ric etc.

Busy but beautiful

The trip was wonderful! Because of seeing so much in 2 days it was all in a hurry, but you can still enjoy the beautiful places you see.Hobbiton, Waitomo caves and Rotorua are amazing places, they are a must see. During the transfers you can see a lot of beautiful landscapes and the guides tell a lot of details about the sourrandings; being a small group you have the chance to easily know better the other passengers and the guide. The Maori show is very nice and interesting. The hotel was really nice. Overall the trip was very well organised.

Hi, Thank you for your review. Great to hear you enjoyed our overnight tours and were able to enjoy the sights and attractions as much as possible as you are aware it is a a lot to fit into such a short time which is why we take alot of time to plan these days to ensure you get as much as possible. Best Regards, Daniel

We had a great time on our trip to Hobbiton, Rotorua, and Waitomo. I guess it's really a compilation of different tours, so you have different drivers/tour guides throughout. We started out leaving Auckland as a small group of 5 people and returned with a group of about 15. A well worth adventure.

This was a well organised tour taking in some excellent sites. There is not much spare time in the schedule and you should expect a lot of travelling so it may not be suitable for very small children. The hotel in Rotorura is good and, for us, the Hobbiton Movie set was the highlight. There is quite a bit of changing vehicles but all the drivers were very helpful and informative. Generally a good experience.

If you are a LOTR fan, this is a MUST. I loved it. You get to walk among the houses in the Shire. Great tour guides who explained everything. I highly recommend this tour.

This tour really tried to do too much in a limited time. We enjoyed the trips to see the glow-worm caves, geysers and hot springs, mud pools etc, and the Rotorua Hotel was very good. The evening feast and Maori dancing were very enjoyable, but they also tried to include talks about Maori culture, which involved blundering through the bush in the dark, in a very large group more than sixty people so that many of us could not see, or hear the commentary, which in any case went on far too long. If the evening had ended with the meal, it would have been fine, The large size of the groups meant that the venue where the evening feast was held was jammed to capacity, so that one could not pull a chair out to sit down without asking people nearby to stand up.
