Uncle Tim was very easy to work with. He called us at our hotel to confirm the tour once we arrived in Rotorua. The next day Martin, his tour guide, gave us a great tour of Waiotapu, the Lady Knox Geyser, a relaxing coffee and scone visit to Lava Glass (we're not big on tourist shopping), Honey Hive and Aratiatia...

We had a phenomenal time with Tim on his "Thermal Encounters" tour. He picked us up on time, and off we went on our adventure. Not only was he extremely knowledgeable about every aspect of the thermal adventures that we went on, he was also personable and an all around great guy! He was great to talk to, and really... More

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!

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.
