I wouldn't want to praise him TOO much, though, as his self confidence needs no bolstering! He truly is good at what he does, and as I told him at the end of our 6+ hour tour of the area, he has found his calling. Lots of information, a few jokes and always enthusiastic. Oh, and if the geyser at... More

You could tell that he really loves his job as he knew everything about everything. He made the day fun and was generally a really nice person. I would... More

A weeks tour of Norfolk Island with Terry Tours was exceptional. 'Flash' the tour director, was solicitous and caring of the 7 clients on tour. No hassle for us the customers with accommodation, Island tours and meals all pre-arranged. Flash is an entertainer which kept the tour in high spirits. Well done 'Flash' of Terry Tours we will be happy... More

The day spent with him on a small group tour of 10 was informative and will not be forgotten. With genuine enthusiasm he led us from kiwi orchards, to... More
