Reviewed 4 April 2018

My brother & I were traveling to Hamilton on short notice and with little free time upon arrival. We found Archer Tours by happenstance, and are so pleased we did. Of three guides we attempted to contact, Archer Tours was the only one to reply. We quickly hashed out desires & set up our tour via email. On the appointed day, Jim Archer was not only punctual, professional, and friendly; he was also extremely knowledgeable about every location we toured & every subject we discussed. Our day tour to the Rotorui area was truly memorable. A working sheep farm, Mauri Cultural Center, geysers & mud pots, lovely city park area, and three breathtaking lakes ... Jim packed a lot of sites into our day. All the while with running commentary & historic insight that only a seasoned local could provide. We couldn't be more impressed with Archer Tours and owner/operator Jim Archer. Strongly recommended!

Today a group of 8 friends from the m/s Amsterdam's 2018 World Tour arranged for a Tour to see the Glow Worms with Jim Archer. Jim arrived at our ship docked in Auckland on time with a clean large comfortable van. Our drive to the Waitomo Caves was 2 hours, but Jim's Van and Commentary, plus a comfort stop made the ride very enjoyable. As an extra treat we visited Kiwi World on the way to the Caves and stopped for Kiwi Ice cream on the way back to the Port. Jim found a nice local restaurant for our lunch at our expense and shops for souvenirs. We highly recommend Jim's services!
