My wife and I booked the Auckland city and Piha beach tour and we thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it! Terry picked us up in his own vehicle and the tour began by him driving us through the city with two other guests, adding in his own personal and informative anecdotes along the way. We could tell he was the... More

We (my husband and I) booked a "Hobbiton/Waitomo Caves" combo tour. Terry picked us up - we were his only customers that day! So we felt somewhat like VIPs! :) Terry was great - he picked us up at our apartment rental and he was on time. The communication prior to the date of the tour has been great. The... More

We had a great day yesterday with our host Therry. We felt in love with Cathedral cove. Coromandel day tour is very good to see a little more about this beautiful country!

Terry is the best guide!! He was excellent and so nice!! I experienced the free private tour since there was no one registered on that day. I was so lucky. Terry was so nice and I truly experienced the best private, unusual, and adventurous tour to PIHA beach and rain forest. It was awesome!!! Thank you very much for this... More

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
