  • Hot Rocks from Auckland - Top rated by National Geographic reviewer 1
    Written on May 8, 2016
    3.5 - Good

    The itinerary was generally good, but expect that you will spend at least half of all waking time on the bus just travelling between different places. NZ is quite beautiful so generally this is not a big problem. Another thing to keep in mind - this tour requires that the group cooks and cleans for themselves in the evening.
    Flying Kiwi commented on this review
    Thanks for your comments Prerak. We love to hear from passengers and whilst most rate us 5/5 we sincerely appreciate feedback that can help us improve. We are very sensitive to driving times on our tours and take great pride in spending less time on the road (in buses) than many other operators. We average around 3 hours a day on the bus and this is reduced further for those who decide to hire bikes. On our longer tours we spend a couple of nights in the best spots meaning no driving on up to 4 days – all other operators drive every day. Next season we’re launching new, faster buses which means even less driving. Our tours are participatory and for many that’s one of the highlights of the trip – it’s a very relaxed, informal event with your 2 guides leading everything whilst a couple of passengers help with cooking and washing up. This isn’t required every day and on a typical tour you will be helping out once every 3 or 4 days.

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

    • August 1, 2016

      What is the age range on this tour?

      The average age of a Flying Kiwi passenger is about 27yrs. The majority of people are between the age of 20 and 40 but age is just a number and we find our tours attract people who want to meet other travellers, and get out and enjoy the great outdoors. You will often find travellers aged 18yrs - 60+ on board our trips.

    • February 1, 2016

      What is the accommodation set for single travelers?

      We are a camping tour and included in the tour price is shared tent accommodation, 2 people per tent. If you are travelling alone you will be paired with someone of similar age and same gender. You can upgrade to a single tent for the duration of the tour and just pay the single supplement.

    • February 1, 2016

      Do I have to do bike rides? Or it is always optional?

      The biking is absolutely optional and around 40-50% of our travellers choose that option (we can only carry 12 bikes for up to 24 passengers, so availability is limited). There are plenty of walks and optional activities and general sightseeing to do, so if you don't normally cycle a lot, don't feel obliged to hire a bike
