I really enjoyed my tour of Taupo with Tim. His knowledge of the area is very in depth and pointed out many interesting landmarks on our journey. He also was a great laugh and a pleasure to spend a day with. If you're looking for an insightful, packed tour with good company look no further!

Tim guided me to Wai-o-Tapu, Waimangu Thermal Valley and Buried Village. So meny things to learn about the area. Walking peacefully with him in the valley. It was a precious day. He is very kind to everyone and even to non-native English speakers. Good memories.

Tim is a higly professional guide. His knowledge of New Zealand is really amazing! Moreover, our five hour Rotorua - Wai o Tapu - Taupo excursion took place in a very friendly and cozy atmosphere. We express our profound gratitude to Tim for this wonderful and unforgettable trip! Leonid & Alina, Auckland, New Zealand

This was a thoroughly interesting day for me with my 2 new friends. So easy to talk and laugh together I was sorry the tour was not longer.

I was lucky enough to have Tim as my tour guide starting from Rotorua and ending in Taupo, even though I was a solo traveler and tours generally require at least two people to run (boo to them!)... he's also apparently quite "famous" as a guide, according to someone working at my accommodation, so I got to spend time with a celebrity to boot ;)

He was full of interesting information and insight, took me to Wai-O-Tapu just as it opened and before all the big tour buses poured through, knew the best spot from which to watch Lady Knox burst forth, was flexible with the itinerary (which included Wai-O-Tapu, Huka Falls, the Huka Honey Hive, the Lava Glass Factory, Aratiatia dam, and a scenic lookout over Tongariro National Park - a packed half day!) and was just wonderful company to have throughout the tour. Super glad I found him!

It is always a pleasure to take someone round who is so receptive and interesting to talk and importantly have a laugh with. Safe travels again in the future wherever you go. Stay safe and happy

We booked a tour 6 months ahead with Taylor's Tours "Uncle Tim" in Rortorua, New Zealand. Tim Stringer the owner responded in a timely manner and we booked our private tour for a party of 4. What a fantastic day! We visited the thermal areas of Wai o Tapu and Waimangu Valley and also had a boat trip on Lake Rotomahana. Tim was very informed and a lot of fun. Thank you for a great day Tim and we will highly recommend to everyone the wonderful day we spent on your tour.
Thanks again,
Bill and Laurel Bertrand
