Tim was a tremendous asset to our time spent in NZ! He was always on time, knew the "ins and outs" of a particular sightseeing excursion, friendly and glad we used his services!

I was travelling with 7 friends from overseas and we spent 4 days in Rotorua. Uncle Tim picked us up from the airport on our arrival. After checking in at our motel, Uncle Tim offered to drop us in town centre as it was lunch time. For the next 2 days we travelled with Uncle Tim on his mini bus... More

We spent a day with Tim in the Lake Taupo area and visited Wai-o-tapu, the Lady Knox geyser, Lave Glass, the Ariatiatia Dam and Rapids, and went on a Huka Falls cruise. It was brilliant from start to finish. Tim picked us up at our Rotorua Hotel at 8pm and arranged to stop off there on the way back. This... More

We did a half day tour to Taupo with Uncle Tim who had been very friendly and warm right from the start. There were only 5 of us on the tour so it was great that we could interact and were guaranteed of all the attention you need from Uncle Tim. He was very knowledgable, sincere and genuine, there wasn't... More

Picked up at my Hotel by Lenard in his car for the trip to Taupo, a pleasant surprise, as I was the only client it made more sense than a Van/Coach, also better visibility and comfort. First stop Wai o Tapu, where Lenard was able to give me information on the history as we walked around the area, over to... More

By far my favorite part of the North Island, in large part because of how much time and attention Tim devoted to making the tour both fun and informative. He had a wealth of knowledge about each area visited and brought the sights alive with his personality! Highly recommended!

I took a day tour in the Taupo area, visiting thermals, glass-blowing, mud pools, a river cruise and more. It was a wonderful day, made all the more so by our tour guide Tim.
