Highly recommended!

Our tour guide Rebecca is such a lovely and sweet person. Overall we had a great experience exploring the glow worm cave and Hobbiton. Peter, the guide for glow worm is also amazing, he explained every tiny details of the glow worm and brought us on a boat excursion. It was magical! Hobbiton was fun and filled with fascinating facts! Thank you Rebecca from Flexitours for the tour, we absolutely loved it and enjoyed ourselves. It’s worth the money and highly recommended!

Awesome guided tour!

Tour guides were amazing and knowledgeable. We got to experience and learn a lot from the tour with not as many people on site due to the closure of the air border.

Great experience

This was a really enjoyable day! The cave had lots of glowworms and Hobbiton was great with lovely farmland surrounding it. The day was made that much better due to our amazing guide/driver Ric! He was super friendly and knowledgeable about the region and was fantastic company.
