Excellent tour guided by our driver Julie. We walked in glorious sunshine to Cape Reinga, where the waters of the Pacific Ocean meet the waters of the Tasman Sea. Julie gave us basic training for sand surfing and encouraged us in a great experience. Most of the bus group were about 40 years our junior, but the atmosphere was great.... More

My fiancé and I did the cape and 90 mile tour.

Had a great time with Willy he's a top top tour guide and made the trip super fun. It takes a few hours to get going but it's certainly worth it once it's up and running. Would work better as a 2D/1N trip as the stops are very rushed. 45 mins at the cape is no way near enough!j

I can totally understand why the Maori people see it as a sacred place. We are very fortunate that we are allowed to visit. It was very interesting the read all the plaques about the area and the...

Has a great day on the 90 mile beach tour, say some amazing sights, really enjoyed the drive up the beach and then through the sand dunes. Sand boarding just added to the excitement of the day. Our driver/guide was quite a character, made the trip interesting and entertaining. Definitely recommend the tour.
