Great service excellent combination
I went through Viator tours and they used flexitoursNZ. Excellent service. On time, knowledgeable, friendly and flexible. A great combination for a tour company. I highly recommend the Mitai performance and dinner, best cultural show I have ever seen. All of the activities were of high quality and spending overnight was a good way to stretch out the activities. Excellent all around

A great 2-day tour (return) from Auckland to Rotorua
Oct 2019 • Friends
We did a customised 2-day tour to Rotorua and the staff were very helpful and quick to respond throughout the trip. In order to see the most to our liking we chose to plan our own itinerary instead of going for the set tours. There have been quite a lot of email exchanges but the staff were patient to provide all the information we need. We visited Hobbiton, Te Puia, Red woods, the lakefront in Rotorua and the government garden on the first day, followed by Wai-O-Tapu and the Waitomo Caves on the second day. We were well taken care of by the drivers, who all gave detailed explanations on the places of attractions. Services provided by Will were in particular impressive. Thanks for the hearty service and for showing us the great mud pool! The whole experience was simply fantastic!

Great 2 day tour! Highly recommended!
Aug 2019
Just took the 2 day tour with my family a few weeks ago. The tour operator is excellent. Everything is well timed and we got to see all the sights. Even though we visited 2 geothermal parks, they were significantly different (one has the color pools) that we did not think it was a duplicate. We love the growth worm cave - highly recommended! There were some misunderstandings with the Maori dinner pickup but it was fixed quickly.

Terrific experience with an excellent tour operator
Apr 2019 • Family
We were looking forward to our Hobbiton, Rotorua and Waitomo experience and FlexiTours made it happen!! We took the 2 day tour with Day 1 at Hobbiton, Te Puia at Rotorua and finally the Mitai Maori Village experience. Day 2 was Wai-O-Topu and then Waitomo. FlexiTours were on time picking us up at Auckland. athe travel was very comfortable. Darryl was a fount of knowledge on NZ and the places we were visiting. He took great care to ensure that the group were comfortable and also we got to see the maximum of the places we were visiting, while updating us with info about these places. The stay at Rotorua which was part of the package was excellent. Overall, we enjoyed the tour thoroughly. Thanks, FlexiTours. Thanks, Darryl.

Great parts but can do the main sites in one day
The Hobbiton and Waitamo caves tours were great. Te Puia was a really great experience as well. However, the two day tour was too much of the same thing. It was nice to see the geothermal activity and Rotorua, but we could have completed the tour of Te Puia quicker than the 2-3 hours they gave us. Also we saw some of the same sites of Rotorua with different tour guides and the Wai-O-Tapu tour was a lot of the same sites (for the undiscerning traveller) as Te Puia. Flexi was on time an efficient.

Hi, Thank you for taking the time to write your review. Alot of Rotorua is all about the thermal areas, the geysers mud pools etc and it can feel like the same thing however a lot of these areas are very different in how they were created and how they were used back in the day. Glad to hear our drivers were time efficient a lot of our tours are on a very tight time scheduled and require a lot of pre planning in order to achieve so many activities into one day tours and overnight tours. Safe travels, Daniel

We planned our New Zealand vacation very carefully and evaluated five - yes, 5! - travel agencies. We chose FlexiTours because they offered the best itinerary that was perfectly tailored for our needs and interests and combined reasonable cost and reliability of large public touring companies with flexibility and luxury of custom private tours. Philippa is the best travel manager, very flexible and patient. Rick is the best travel guide ever! We are very grateful and highly recommend FlexiTours to anyone traveling to North Island.

Great tour
Great tour covering some of the main highlights on the northern island. The two day tour gives you the morning off in Rotorua, I spent mine at the Polynesian Spa but when booking the trip, there are add-instead you can book if you are looking for some more excitement. Overnight accommodation in Rotorua was OK. Excellent guides throughout, although at times it felt a bit rushed due to restrictions in how many hours the guides are allowed to drive.

Awesome customized tour!
Apr 2018 • Friends
Note Our tour was customized 3 day tour:
Right from our first communication with FlexiTours, I knew this was going to be an awesome tour. We were very impressed with Philippa's immediate responses to our requests for information for a customized 3 days / 2 nights tour roundtrip from Auckland to Rotorua with stops at Hobbiton and Waitomo glow worm caves. We simply provided a list of what we wanted to do and see, and it was all put together by FlexiTours.

When we arrived in Auckland we visited FlexiTours office to make final payment. Tui in the office took the time to explain the tour from start to finish. We had a free afternoon that same day and Tui was able to book us on a half-day Auckland city tour. Perfect!

The drivers to and from Rotorua, Vic and Fran, were wonderful and very knowledgeable with all of the answers to our many questions along the way. These drivers, Auckland - Rotorua and return, are on a tight schedule. As a courtesy to others, don't be late for your pickup times.

David, our driver during our time in Rotorua, was also very knowledgeable, made a slight adjustment to our tours in Rotorua so that we would have time to visit the Polynesian Spa, and made us feel very special as it seemed that most of the time we had our own personal chauffeur!

The hotel was included and we were originally told that we would stay in the Sudima, however this was changed to a smaller hotel, Jet Park, which was perfect for us! The staff there made us feel like family and upon arrival they came to our room with us to ensure that we had everything we needed. The included breakfast was impressive and top quality. There were no cooked items but plenty of options. We walked over to the Sudima and so happy that we did not stay in such a big hotel.

Upon return to Auckland we wanted to go directly to our hotel near the airport. FlexiTours do not drop off at hotels outside Auckland CBD, however Philippa arranged for us to be dropped off just off the highway with another vehicle waiting to take us to our hotel for a small additional cost.

Not to be missed: Hobbiton, Matai Maori Concert and Dinner, Wai-o-Tapu thermal wonderland

I would highly recommend FlexiTours
