Had an absolute fantastic experience thanks to a thoughtful, knowledgeable guide Terry. I only had 24hrs in Auckland and he made my day exploring NZ just magic. He is expert naturalist and knows a lot about history and area. Hire him!

Terry is the best guide/babysitter/entertainer! His knowledge is so extensive that not only is he an expert in all the NZ highlights, he also will point out all the best spots for pict-taking, buying souvenirs and scarfing local food. There was never a dull day with Terry as he was also such a cheerful and funny guy - watch out... More

We had a tour scheduled we were so excited to go on. Unfortunately the start time was changed from 9:20 am to 8:00 am and we didn't get the message. We contacted Absolute Tours and found out he was very near our hotel ready to do a private tour; he agreed to pick us up. The tour was fun, light-hearted,... More

Highly recommended! Terry was the best host and took us to see places that the usual tourist tours don't show you. The great thing about Absolute Tours is that the tour groups are smaller compared to some of the other companies and you really get enough time to experience and appreciate the surroundings. I went on the Piha Beach and... More

We really recommend this tour. Thanks Terry for showing us the beautiful Piha beach and Waitakere Ranges rainforest. We also appreciated much the personal touch of the tour. Thanks to you we now know quite a lot about your country and how it is to live here. We really enjoyed the tour! Madelene and Virpi

I had a tour of Auckland city and Piha beach with Terry today and had the absolute best day! I have taken a lot of day tours in the past little while and having said that, this was probably my favorite, and the most well done. I enjoyed it because he didn't just take us around in a car and... More

Yesterday & today we had the pleasure to hang out with Terry all day. He felt more like a friend than a tour guide. He was awesome ! The best. Anyone who comes to New Zealand has to do one of his tours. We did Hobbiton, glow worm caves & Piha beach. He's hilarious & very knowledgable too! Absolute tours... More
