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

Terry is an exceptional tour guide. Joined him for the day tour of Piha Beach and waterfall hike. Fantastic! Very professional and informative. He does a great job of customizing the tour based on the group. This is a must on your visit to Auckland.

Short notice trip, our call Harbour Bridge, his call under the bridge, great photo opportunities.(spotted "will you marry me" banner in the sky, by the way Terry it was actually "win 20 million tonight"... did you?) Stopped at coffee shop but not Mums wine bar. Walked the plank, more great views. Would not have seen outlying areas of Auckland if... More

Spent the day with Terry and absolutely loved it! He is knowledgeable, fun and has a great attitude. We went to the west coast-saw Piha beach, did a rain forest walk with a waterfall and had the best time. Thanks Terry :)

My friend and I rang Terry out of office hours and was so happy that we were still accomodated. We did the full day tour to piha and the whole tour was excellent. Terry was very enthusiastic on the tour with us despite the not so good weather. The tour was worth our time and money. Until next trip! :)
