Day tour: What an awesome trip. We were met by Eddy, lovely bloke. Driven thru some stunning back country NZ. Onto a farm where we changed to off road vehicle. Terrain was spectacular and we are Kiwi's! Arriving at the top, planting a fern, looking at the carvings and views. But what made it special was all the information that Eddy provided. All the detail that we would have missed if it wasnt for his narrative. I found all the Maori legend fascinating. Afterwards, a lovely bite to eat and then headed back down. I thought it was great value for money considering the approx 4 hours involved. I would recommend to anyone traveling around East Cape to experience this very cool experience and support local business

The Te Urunga-Tu-Sunrise tour (7/1/2021) is the best adventure. I have been Up North, the South Island and other countries, but this experience is incomparable. It is amazing to wait and see the sunrise, we can always view it in any parts of the world - this tour top it all. Monty is very helpful with all our planning and Eriha shared his knowledge of the place cultural history. Thank you to both of you.

Magical place to visit. The sunrise was spectacular and our guide Monty was top notch with very good knowledge of the local history and landmarks.This morning our tour group were blessed with a good sunrise with hardly a cloud in sight. Should be on top of everyone’s Bucket List.
