Our family only had one full day in Auckland on our return trip to the US from Australia, so I hesitated to commit our limited time to a day tour. But I'm glad I did! We had a private tour on our day. Terry is a true professional and a knowledgeable tour guide who certainly loves all things New Zealand.... More

I did the Piha Beach Day Tour with Terry and enjoyed every second of it. I was the only one on the tour and it was more like spending the day with a friend than being on tour. Terry's knowledge of the local area and wildlife is endless and his enthusiasm is contagious. His encouragement and help to reach some... More

It was a breeze booking online the tour for my dad who is there alone. Terry was patient with my numerous emails exchanges with him to ensure my dad is in good hands. My dad has nothing but good praise for the 2 day Rotoura, Taupo and Waitomo Cave tour. He is extremely happy with your service and warm hospitality:)... More

I called early on a Sunday morning, had no problem booking a 3 hour today for that day and it turned out that me and my missus were the only ones on the tour! Terry was a brilliant guide, made us feel really comfortable and took us to all the sights as well as recommending loads of places to eat... More

What a great way to see the Auckland region of New Zealand. I was on a long term business trip to Auckland, staying at the Hilton in Auckland without a car. This tour picked me up at my hotel and took me to areas that I would otherwise not seen. For the first part of the day we hiked to... More

Terry Buckley from Absolute Tours met us as we disembarked from our cruise ship in Auckland and so began an enchanting journey. My husband and I were his only two "guests" of the day. The next eight hours were filled with many fun experiences including a “gentle” hike through a rain forest on the Hillary Trail; beautiful waterfalls and giant... More
