Within five minutes you will swear you have known Jim Archer your entire life. He is showing you his culture and his land. His skills and knowledge are second to none. Certainly there are others with the same background and knowledge. However, I seriously doubt they can deliver this experience with the heart felt emotion, generosity and feeling we received...

I booked Jim Archer for 14 of us based on his reputation and Trip Advisor reviews and he did not disappoint. He met us at the cruise terminal and spent the day showing us his "corner of paradise", as he calls it. We toured Rotorua, visited the Kiwi farm and a Maori Village. We learned a great deal about the... More

We were met at the port gates as scheduled, and we proceeded to enjoy time at a number of picturesque oceanfront sites, Kiwi 360, Te Puia (where we enjoyed a fabulous Maori cultural performance (and one of our party was chosen as "visiting...

This was one of our favorite all-time tours. Jim more than delivered what he promised, and he did it with style and class. Jim picked up our group at the Crystal Serenity right on time and we simply had a wonderful day. We not only saw all the sights we had planned, but we also learned a great deal about... More

We booked a 2 day tour and was met by Jim at the cruise terminal at Tauranga with his van. After a short wait we left with a full van and were given a good personal tour of the area including Rotorua, Kiwi farm and Maori Village. The next day Jim again met us at Auckland and took us with... More

As promised Jim was waiting for us outside the gate from the Diamond Princess. We had a wonderful and full day seeing Tauranga, Rotorua, and the highlight Te Puia, the Maori Cultural Center, plus the geo-thermal valley. Our driver for the day was Wayne who is also Maori and did a great job of telling us about the Maori culture... More

Thank you JL Cross for your review, it is always a pleasure showing off our Maori culture and our beautiful country. I will take your comment about the time we allow for our clients to eat lunch onboard and keep a closer watch on this. Although I must say that we always make sure that everyone has finished eating before... More

Jim Archer met our cruise ship with his spotless van towing a locked trailer for our luggage. After loading our party he took us on a very comfortable tour of Aukland. Then he dropped some of us at our hotels and the remaining people to the airport for their evening flights. Everything went well including wonderful clear weather for our... More
