        Worth the time
        Alfredo was an excellent guide. Trip was flawless. Glow worms were very interesting. The boat ride was the hit of the trip. The geysers on the second half of the trip were also very interesting

        Total rip-off!!!
        “Private” cave tour is a glorified Uber ride to the caves, where you then tour with the rest of the public… this company is a bunch of crooks.

        Wonderful day trip to the glow worms and the Hobbit farm Driver was the best and took great care of us Long day but worth the expense of a private car

        Interesting
        The caves were really great and we found the information about the glowworms really interesting. Rotorua itself was not so great since we just drove around the town. We did, however stop at Te Puia, a destination for visitors featuring the Pohutu Geyser impressive as Old Faithful), Maori cultural performances (interesting, but felt a bit touristy), live Kiwi (hard to see in the dark environment), and boiling mud pools. Te Puia is also the home of the New Zealand Maori Arts and Crafts Institute, and acts as a guardian and developer of the traditional Maori skills of carving and weaving for future generations. It was really interesting seeing what is done and seeing samples of the carving and weaving. The Whakarewarewa geothermal valley extends for generations and the guides have links to Rotorua’s Maori ancestors.

        Not good value
        We booked a private tour of the Glowworm Caves via Legend because we were doing as a day trip from Auckland. It was one of the most expensive activities we did (only helicopter tour more expensive) and it was not good value for the return. The Glowworm Caves were interesting...and the tour of the caves is conducted by employees of the caves, not Legend. But it was a long drive (2.5 hours each way) for the caves, the tour of which takes only about 45 min. Most people pair the Caves with Hobbinton but we werre not interested in touring a movie set. The description of the tour said it included Auckland highlights (by car) as well, though our driver did not do that. I would not recommend doing the Glowworm Caves as a day trip from Auckland; they are interesting if you are in the neighborhood, but not worth a detour. The tour of the caves itself is not expensive; we paid alot for the driver to take us there an back.

        Not what it was made out to be
        Going into the experience, we expected a full day of exploring and learning with a private guide, but instead it looked like this: 7.30-11am: Drive from Auckland to Waitomo 11am-12pm: Group Tour with 50-odd people at the Waitomo Caves, a nice enough place, but crowded and nothing private about it. 12-2.30pm: Drive from Waitomo to Auckland We spent twice as much time in a van driving to and from the caves than we did actually exploring. The description is misrepresented as there is nothing private about the Waitomo Caves tour.

        We did not expect such a comprehensive tour with such an excellent guide
        We were picked up at the Hotel - pecisely on time and had a driver & guide, who was very good prepared and could answer a lot of questions coming up during the tour. The small group of cours was an addtional asset of the tour

        Half Day and Airport Transfer
        We were arriving by ship early on a Monday and had about 4 hours to see Auckland before getting to the airport. We had a little confusion when being met - but that was quickly sorted. The driver was quite knowledgeable about the area and suggested that an alternative to sitting in Auckland traffic most of the morning we visit the west coast to see the Muriwai Gannet Colony. It was probably about a 1 hour drive, but he explained a great deal about the area along the way. The Gannet Colony was amazing - we probably spent just about an hour there. We then stopped at a small cafe nearby for a cup of coffee and muffin. He chose a different path back to Auckland and the airport, for variety. We were on time and had a pleasant morning.

        Very Pleasant trip! Driver was extremely knowledgeable!!!
        We were tired of the large tour groups that our travel agent had been booking us on so we jumped ship! Used this for a trip to Hobbiton ++. Drive was very well informed and accomodating! We would use them again and it was a very pleasant day!! Must try!

        Excellent transportation service
        We used Legends to get to/from the Auckland Airport. The drivers were great, helped with our luggage and gave us a mini tour while driving.

        Waitomo Caves Tour - My trip highlight!
        My husband and I decided to splurge on this private tour to the caves. While the focal point was definitely seeing the (amazing, outstanding, breathtaking) glow worm caves, the highlight was the tour guide, Sandeep. He was very flexible to accommodate our pick up locations as well as the other sites to see. He is such a pleasure to talk with and gave us great insight to New Zealand. He even looked into different trips that we could do on our own with our other days in Auckland! Since it was just the two of us, the car was a Mercedes sedan, which was comfortable and had wonderful snacks and drinks! I give a resounding recommendation to Legend Tours!

        Fantastic Holidays.. Thank you Legend Tours!!
        Wow!! Just back to Muscat, Oman from our fantastic holidays in heavenly New Zealand.. A BIG Thank You goes to Oniel and his team at Legend Tours for making our trip so comfortable and memorable. Your Auckland city tour and Sky Tower tour were very well organized with the interesting inputs and facts. We were travelling with children aged 12 & 8 and they were so very thrilled at the Sky Tower, to be on top with breathtaking spectacular views of the city. Truly a captivating experience for all of us!!

      We had an Auckland drive around with an airport transfer driver rather than a professional guide.
      While she was pleasant enough, it was not a tour that enlightened us with the city and countrside highlights. We had to ask questions to find out details.
      Stick with Tours by Locals.

      Driver provided VERY little information or comments. Covered wide range of geography/landscape of Aukland with a lot of “dead air”.
      Would have preferred more info & insights (historical & contemporary.
      Disappointing!
