Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Our guide, Brenda, was fantastic. Suprisingly large groups for tours at Hobbiton and the caves but groups were managed well and pacing seemed relaxed and not rushed.

    A wonderful way to see Aukland nature from sea to sea. Local guides Kevin and Kelly were friendly, fun and knowledgeable. The scenery is gorgeous whether it's rainforest or beach.

    Our tour guide was Ali and he was a blast!! He spent time making sure we felt happy and got to know the members in our group. The cheeky kiwi company works hard to ensure that their guests are well taken care of. It is a lot of time spent in the van traveling, but it worked well for us because we didn’t want to rent our own car for this particular trip. You can see so much in just one day!

    Great tour, the Waitomo caves are really cool, and the Hobbiton is spectacular. The bus is very comfortable, nice lunch and the tour guide Rachel is awesome.

    It was one of the best tours I have taken and definitely a highlight of my trip to Auckland. As a nature lover, I found the guide to be super informative. The tour included many cool spots, from the rainforest walk to the black sand beach. Oh, and lunch was delicious. Should I return to Auckland, I would 100% book this tour again or another with Bush and Beach, as they were a terrific tour company!

    Our tour guide: Damian was EXCEPTIONAL. He made sure that our time in New Zealand (Hobbiton) would be truly worth it. All in all, the tour I had with Bush and Beach was truly SUPERB and beyond WORTH IT. Will surelt come back for more. 💯❤️

    We had a lovely trip to Hobbiton and the Hamilton gardens with Huzefa!
    We were first picked up from our hotel in Auckland on time and in a very comfortable mini van - spacious, had wifi and we were able to charge our phones too. Enroute to the gardens Huzefa shared a lot of interesting information and facts and made the trip a lot of fun.
    When we reached the gardens we were amazed by how stunning they are! Although Huzefa gave us plenty of time to explore, we could easily spend a few more hours here. This was a perfect start to our day!
    When we reached Hobbiton we had plenty of time to have lunch and enjoy the gift shop before our tour. The view was picturesque and the environment serene!
    Hobbiton was an amazing experience, our guide there was very enthusiastic - we felt like we were truly transferred back in time when magic was made there!
    Getting to see Bagshot row and stepping inside the home of a Hobbit family was a lot of fun, finishing off with a delicious beer in the green dragon inn.
    Overall this was a very well planned trip, Huzefa planned regular short stops en-route and ensured we were all looked after. At no point we felt rushed which we appreciated. We were also offered water & snacks during the day.
    I would recommend this trip a 100% must do when looking for day trips from Auckland- Great value for Money!

    We had a wonderful time on the Wai O Tapu & Hell's Gate tour. Karthik was a fantastic and very knowledgeable guide who went well above and beyond to make sure we had a great experience. The tour itself was amazing...definitely a "must do" while visiting New Zealand. Highly recommend this tour company!

    Our tour was very well organized to make the best use of our day. But all credit of our wonderful time goes to our amazing tour guide, Damian!

    He was very lovely and personable, giving us fun facts and telling us stories about our destinations as well as Auckland and NZ. I was the only New Zealander in our group and Damian’s storytelling made me proud of my country. He even told us some things about NZ that I didn’t know before.

    Damian was especially very caring of the elderly people in our group, some who had issues with mobility, as he made sure they were well accommodated for to enjoy their tour. He kept the mood alive the entire day and made a great effort to connect with us as well as join everyone together in our tour group despite us being strangers from different parts of the globe.

    It was only because of Damian that our day was as delightful as it was. I felt very lucky to have him as our tour guide. Thank you, Damian!

    The tour was very well organized and executed. I would highly recommend this tour and specially with Warren Peat. He shared right level of information, gave us right guidance and above all kept the group together with his sense of humor.

    Great time, great tour and great tour guide. 5+ stars ✨

    The glowworm cave was a great adventure and the whole trip was enhanced by having a knowledgeable Māori tour guide, Ama. She shared knowledge about the tribes and their culture. I really enjoyed this added part of the trip! We also stared the trip with sweet little gift bags full of treats for our outing. I would definitely take another tour with this team!

    We had Peter as a driver. He was crucial to our experiences being so positive. I wish him the very best for the future and his endeavours.

    FlexiToursNZ came to the rescue when I contacted them at the last minute.

    The group size was perfect. We met a family from Jacksonville, Florida, and two women from Singapore. We spoke, developed respect and shared moments during the trip. Our specific tour at Hobbiton was enjoyable, outside of the young lady who kept heckling my son to stay with our tour group and not wander everywhere at Hobbiton (but she didn't work for FlexiTours). Big T made looking at caves (Waitomo) a beautiful experience, especially with his singing.

    I hope one day, our friends from the tour group will read this review and smile, looking back at our brief encounter, moments of happiness from a short time in life passing through a small town reminiscent of a big movie (which we never watched).
