What people are saying about Bay of Plenty Region
Louise, our guide, was incredibly inviting and informative throughout the entirety of our trip. We spent about three hours driving through beautiful countryside learning about New Zealand’s history, agriculture, and Maori culture. We went to both Wai o Tapu Geothermal Park and the geothermal park/Maori culture park at Te Puia. The former was beautiful, and Louise made sure we knew how these geothermal areas were used by the Maori. Te Puia was an amazing experience, as we were graciously invited to participate in a welcome ceremony and performance, and toured the on-site school that teaches traditional arts and culture to new generations. It was extremely interesting (and heartening) to learn about the Maori and see the work being done to preserve their traditions. Walking through the rest of the park, we even got to see a geyser erupt amidst the smoking craters and pools. The day was extremely memorable, and our guide was one of the most pleasant people we met.
Love the entire activity: from Hobbiton to Rotorua and Waitomo Caves. Booking was easy breezy. Got Confirmation via email right away and coach service/driver was very precise with pick up time (which i like!) at the hotel where we stayed. Just a little glitch for me was the time allotted for lunch and tour at Te Puia in Rotorua. Felt like we had to rush our buffet lunch just so we’ll have ample time for the tour of the area (which is kinda huge). So we ended up not being able to go around some more coz time wasnt enough. Somehow, we also wanted to enjoy our lunch after the Hobbiton activity. But all in all, it was great! Thanks! No hidden whatsover (fees, incidents, etc) unlike other tours we have experienced from diff countries with other companies.
If you don't have a lot of time left and you're in hurry, go for this trip and you shouldn't be disappointed! Right, everything was kinda rushed and I just wish there was more time in Rotorua but c'mon, there's no other way to see these all places in barely one day! The guide made sure everyone is safe and sound and on time.
Flexi Tours did a fine job with Kelly, our guide. It was a fun and interesting trip visiting Hobbiton and Rotorua. Would certainly recommend this one day adventure to and from Auckland.
Very well organized & our driver / tour guide - Daryl was AMAZING !!!! In depth knowledge, informative & very entertaining during our journey. Highly recommended
