Our family did a day tour of Rotorua with Terry and absolutely loved it! He took us to many amazing places and was very knowledgable, funny and charming. He even gave us useful suggestions of where to eat/drink after the tour! Can't say enough good things about this tour - we had an amazing time. Thank you Terry!

We booked Absolute Tours from Australia after reading the excellent reviews. We were not disappointed. Terry came to the hotel and as there were only three of us went in his comfortable car for a great tour. His knowledge about his loved City of Auckland was terrific, and we saw and learned so much in such a short time, By... More

Terry is good as they get. Very knowledgeable--virtual Google with a great sense of humour. The tour was a highlight of our brief stop over in Auckland and part of the reason we will be back. You get high value when you have a personal guide. Let him take you to the best coffee shop down under too.

I booked with Terry not only because of his great reviews but also because he let me pick a time for our tour to begin, which was not an option with other tours in the area. We did the Auckland city tour and it was a pleasure to have him show us around his city. He was very knowledgeable and... More

Terry was a super guide. I booked this tour well in advance and wound up being the only persons on the tour. Terry didn't hesitate a bit and gave us a great tour of his home. We viewed several areas, mountains, beaches, city, etc.. We hiked up to a beautiful waterfall. He has a great "office", right by a stream... More

I went to Auckland just for the weekend and specifically to have some time exploring the natural beauty of NZ. Of all the day tour companies I contacted, Terry was the only one who responded promptly to me and confirmed that I had a... More

What a lovely time! I really enjoyed the hours spent on this tour. Good car, great driver/guide (Terry). Such a pleasant person makes everything worthwhile. Relaxed, informative. It was a high point in our 3 week New Zealand/Australia trip. I do recommend it.
