    The day has been absolutely fantastic, shane we only had less than 30 minutes after our lunch to explore Rotorua but we've been a bit unlucky, no big issue! Thanks to Darryl and the team at Flexi Tours, very professional service

    Punctual polite driver. Just the right amount of commentary. Three wonderful places to visit. Long day well worth it.

  • 16-Oct-2019

    We got to see a lot in one day and we had a very informative guide and driver,Darryl.

    We did a Hobbiton tour, a visit to the Roturoa Park with a delicious lunch buffet, and a short trip to the Waitomo Caves all in a day.

    The pick ups, drop offs, and rides were all smooth. We also enjoyed learning a lot of history and context from Darryl.

    This day was amazing. The guide was really great and very informative - a special thanks to him. The three destinations were just so good and I saw so much in one day. We covered a lot of ground and I saw so much - not only the three destinations but also the interesting facts and sites along the way.

    This was an awesome tour provided by the awesome folks at FlexiTours! We got to see a huge part of the North Island, all in one day! If you want to see the greatness of New Zealand's North Island and the famous sites all in one tour and day with good value, sign up on this tour! I would do it again! Thanks FlexiTours!

    We are a big group of 14. 9 adults and 5 kids. We did Rotorua , hobbiton and glow worms all in one day. It saved us money but I felt rushed on our trip. The driver picked us up on time. We were on time as well. But we were reminded constantly to hurry up or else we would be left out. I do appreciate the reminder so the kids can be on time. It would have been better if we did 2 tours that day -- glow worms + hobbiton and Rotorua on another day instead. we left a water bottle on the bus and the company returned it that night.

    Worth going and good experience. Compact day tour with 3 different places. Highly recommend this tour.

  • 03-Jul-2019

    This was a great tour packed with sights and touring. The Hobbiton stop was better than expected, and a delight to be outside. Rotorua was interesting and the Waitomo Caves a delight. The trip makes for a long day, but it is so nice to sit back and let someone else show you around! Highly recommended.

    A perfect day! Luxury minibus with Trevor at the wheel. His local knowledge was outstanding and made what could have been a long boring journey into a masterclass of NZ history and modern day life.

    The three stops were amazing but you’ll see that for yourselves. Buffet lunch at Rotorua was a feast!

    I’d have no hesitation in doing it all over again.
