This morning we had a brilliant tour of the waterfall North East of Paihia, the Treaty grounds and all around Paihia with our very knowledgeable guide=chauffeur Mark. We had an absolute blast on his V8 trike. The whole experience was amazing. We acceleratorated so fast at one point that my beanie flew off. No problem to Mark. A quick 180 and he scooped it off the road before it was run over and then we resumed our tour. Mark was so knowledgeable and made our trip a delight. Definitely a must when in Paihia.

We decided to try the trike tour on our last day and I highly recommend it, it ticked all the boxes - fun, learning about the area, value for money and you are left on a high! Mark was knowledgeable, entertaining and we never felt unsafe. There is nothing like having that wind blowing in your hair and feeling like you are young again!

Just when you think you have done it all you really havent! Trike tours was one of the best experiences we have ever done. Denise made booking a breeze, Daz managed to give a geography class we both wanted to pay attention too! Would definitely book again :)

What an awesome tour with a super friendly tour guide. Awesome experience and particularly enjoyed seeing ELVIS at Waitangi. My wife was terrified on the roller coaster then wanted more.
