Amazing experience! I tried different tours already and can’t recommend them enough. It was a pleasure to talk to Peter who is always available to provide you the best experience in Auckland. All the staff very helpful and although I only stayed for a short period they always tried to accommodate so I can have the best time in New Zealand. Big thanks to all of you and can’t wait to go back.

Thank you Auckland & Beyond Team for making my first visit to Auckland memorable! Visited during high season, didn’t book anything in advance (my mistake) and even though A&B were very understanding and managed to get us last slots for tour to Hobbiton movie set! Very professional, transpiration at your convenience, friendly driver, competitive price. Will totally recommend to anyone visiting Auckland.

Excellent Hobbiton tour! It was very enjoyable and the movie set was amazing and the scenery was gorgeous! We liked the personalized service with pickup at the hotel. Our driver Boushra was kind and considerate and also offered to take us to Waitomo Caves at short notice after our visit to Hobbiton.

Awesome, friendly and reliable!
Juat landed in Auckland for bussiness at 6:30am having only that one day for myself. Chwcked in at the hotel around 8:00am and fly downstaris to book a samedaytour to Hobitton; this guys made it possible! Very flexible, allowing for half day tours, piked me up at the hotel and drived me to Hobitton. Really friendly, good converstion on our way there, stoping to enjoy the views. Great tour at Hobitton, and I even took a nap on the ride back, so I could enjoy the evening and take most out of my only day! Highly rexommemded!
Excellent place with amazing people
We went to Hobbiton, it is a must-do activity if visiting Auckland, and the benefit of this tour group is that they leave early and return early to Auckland, giving us lots of time to do other things afterwards. Was Very comfortable even with 2 young kids on board. Thanks Auckland & Beyond and will definitely come back to this tour group for more!
Best Tour Company I have ever dealt with!
The booking was so convenient, fast and customer service was excellent. They made everything too easy and their website is very informative & user-friendly. I went on a few tours with them during my trip: – they customized a five-day tour around the North Island for me and my family, that was wonderful! I just chated on whats app with the organiser who asked about my interests and budget and he made a customized itinerary that was perfect for us. We did a lot of activities: kayaking, horse riding, skydiving, snowboarding & visited such beautiful place. – I also did one-day return tours from Auckland. I cant say thank you enough for the amazing time you gave us. Drivers were very knowledgeable, their vehicles are soo comfortable! I will definitely recommend Auckland & Beyond Tours to everyone visiting New Zealand!
Thank you Peter for the amazing tour of Auckland! 12 of us booked the night before and even though it was quite last minute and a large party Peter was able to accommodate all of us. Compared to other tours the prices were unbeatable and all of us had an amazing time. Highly recommend.

Good tour option Everything went well with the tour. The driver picked us up and dropped us off according to schedule. The tour operator emailed a day before with the confirmations. Hobbiton and Waitomo Caves were both amazing and worth the visit. It was indeed a long drive, but a good option when you do not have many days to spare.

Lovely Coromandel We booked a group tour of the Coromandel Peninsular but it turned out that we were the only 2 for that day, so it became in effect a Private tour. Jason, our driver and guide was excellent - very chatty, experienced and informative. He even gave us info of use on future elements of our trip. He was well prepared with a spade and towel for hot water beach. Loved it all - especially the Driving Creek Railway. Jason also dropped us off at a convenient location once back in Auckland. Many thanks!

Best day trip ever! - Hobbiton & glowworm cave from Auckland I definitely rate this trip 5 stars. Our tourist guide Warren " Wazza" is an absolute champion. From the warm greeting at the early morning pickup (exactly on time in an amazing Mercedes medium bus), he delivered a smooth, easy and delightful trip for all of us. He was super helpful, caring and patient to everyone, especially for us with a young child. A secondary school headmaster in an earlier career Wazza explained & showed our group local landmarks & historical points of interest throughout the day. As an added bonus he also eloquently and passionately gave us an introduction to NZ & Maori history. This was all seamlessly delivered with grace and dry humour. We strongly recommend this tour company and this trip. The design of the two combined sites - the Hobbiton Movie Set tour plus the Glowworm cave trip is a smart choice to take which gives you two very different contrasting experiences in one day. One bright one dark but both breathtaking and magical.

Lovely experience! This trip takes about 11 hours. We were picked up at 6:30am and were dropped off back at the hotel by 5:30pm. A bit of a long day but not too bad. The trip starts from Auckland to Waitomo Caves which took about 2 ½ to 3 hours. The trip from Waitomo Caves to Rotorua took about 3 hours. Our driver from Auckland & Beyond Tours, Jason was a responsible driver, professional and he was very patient. I normally tip the drivers as you can appreciate the long driving they have to do and keep focused on the road. The only suggestion I would like to point out to Auckland & Beyond Tours is that if they can stop every 100 minutes (1 hour and 40 minutes) as this will give the passengers some opportunity to shake their legs and get some fresh air. Weather: We were in Rotorua and Waitomo Caves in early December but temperatures were dropping to 10°C at night and during the day it goes up to 18°C. The locals have told us that summer in New Zealand starts in late January and temperatures do not go over 30°C. Make sure to have a jacket and a cap.
