We had the wonderful opportunity to have Jim take us around both Rotorua and Auckland. I can't imagine anyone being able to do a better job than Jim did! He is very personable and extremely knowledgeable. His van is virtually new and he only handles small groups. He shows you things other tours do not, and everyone in the community... More

My wife and I were on a small tour with Jim Archer which started in Tauranga where the cruise ship docked. On our way to Rotorua we stopped off at a Kiwi fruit farm, saw how the fruit was grown and tasted various samples of Kiwi fruit juice in the shop. In Rotorua we visited the Maori Arts and Craft...

We toured Auckland before our cruise on 15/11/14. Jim picked us and our luggage up at our hotel as arranged and dropped us at the Celebrity Solstice 5 hours later with about 8 other cruisers. What a top tour with a top bloke. Very knowledgeable and friendly. He even gave me the job of explaining a cricket game to the... More

My husband and I with our friends had the best day in Auckland with Jim Archer of Archer Tours! Jim took the 4 of us all over Auckland for a 5 hour tour to show us everything possible around that city. We saw every peak of Auckland that I am sure you can not see in a large bus. We... More

We had a wonderful time on both days with Jim. If you don't like the big bus tour, Jim Archer is perfect. We were on a New Zealand cruise and he greeted us at the dock in Tauranga. In Auckland he stored all our luggage and took us to the airport at the end of the day. Jim is very... More

We did this tour with Jim Archer.we were able to see much of the beautiful scenery before arriving in Rotarua. First we saw the boiling mud and then we went to the Maori center. Jim explained what we were to see in the show. Then he led us to see the Geysers. On both the trip from the ship and... More

Arrived early morning in Auckland after a cruise, and had 10 hours before our flight left. We arranged a tour with Jim Archer who picked us up at the dock and then showed us the highlights of Auckland, after which he dropped us off at the airport - no hassle. Auckland is a beautiful city, and this was a great... More

This was an excellent day tour from the port of Tauranga to Rotorua and Te Puia Maori Centre with its nearby geysers and boiling mud pools. Pre-tour email communications with Jim were easy; from booking the tour to final instructions of where to meet him at the port. I did appreciate that Jim did not ask for a deposit or... More

A fantastic day trip to Rotorua - so well organised from the minute we stepped off our cruise ship in Tauranga and met Jim from Archer Tours! Jim's knowledge of the area and of the Maori culture enhanced our experience, especially Jim's telling of the many Maori legends! Highly recommend this tour!

We had the pleasure of using Archer Tours during to trip to New Zealand. This was one of the best tours we have been on and one of the best for our recent trip. We liked the small size of the tour group and Jims commentary for the whole tour was excellent. Anyone visiting New Zealand should really consider using... More
