Sounds like it'll be exactly what you're looking for. I'm never a big fan of these backpacker tour busses, because they have too much of the tour bus experience for me ("everyone look at this sight for 10 minutes; okay, now we head on again" - I always prefer to see fewer things more in depth) and has quite a bit of upselling for activities along the way (which they get a kickback on), but there's several other people here who do genuinely like them, and I know bex always speaks highly of Magic in particular.
Do also look into Stray and the Kiwi Experience if you haven't yet, but mostly I think you'll get exactly what you want.
