Flexible, knowledgeable tour company
I did the Hobbiton and Waitomo Black Labyrinth day trip starting in Auckland and ending in Rotorua. Flexitours was the only company I could find that was willing to accommodate a transfer from an airport hotel instead of the CBD (needed because my flight arrived late the night before into Auckland) - I was picked up on time and joined up with the main minibus at a service station south of Auckland. We arrived at Hobbiton with plenty of time to visit the cafe/gift shop before our 9.20 tour (make sure you do it then because the minibus picks you up directly from the green dragon after the tour so you don’t go back to the gift shop). The group split at this point onto different buses depending on what else you had booked. We then drove about 20 minutes to a picnic spot and had an included packed lunch (freshly made at Hobbiton) and then headed on to Waitomo. After the Black water rafting I was the only person transferring to Rotorua, so essentially had a private tour guide in Rick for the final leg. Ron (my first driver) and Rick were really knowledgeable and looked after us - Rick even came in to check I definitely had a booking at my hostel and wouldn’t be stranded as the sign outside said no vacancies when we arrived. It was a long day (despite actually getting on to an earlier group at Waitomo) and not the cheapest but was well worth it and allowed me to fit in activities in the North Island that I wouldn’t otherwise have had time for. I would definitely use Flexitours again.
