Awesome Tour. Stunning scenic drive & Terry's witty informative commentary made it a 10 out of 10 memorable day. The highlights for me were: ***The bush walk to beautiful Cathedral Cove, where I sat on the beach and ate delicious Orange Roughy fish I'd bought at the smokehouse in Coromandel. ***Hot Water Beach, where we dug a hole & bathed...

I have so many positive things to say about the tour, it's hard for me to narrow them down into a review. First and foremost, Terry is probably the best guide I have ever encountered. Just like all the reviews say, he is extremely friendly, professional, and knowledgeable - there was never a lull in the conversation, and he kept... More

I only have two days in Aukland, I booked a tour with Terry and I am not confident to say three things: 1) Brillant decision 2) I have actually seeing heaven 3) I met an angel ( Terry). I never write reviews, but this time I want to make sure that I share my exprerience. For readers in a hurry:... More

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
