Overview

A safe way to see the best Coromandel has to offer. Fully guided tours. Sit back,relax and enjoy the scenery. Our guide speaks English and French. Come & explore Coromandel Peninsula from popular Cathedral Cove & Hot Water Beach to the lesser know but equally stunning coastal walk or join us on the Kauri trail to see some of the magnificent trees that once covered the land.

Highly recommend this tour company! Tony is very charming and helpful, and gave us a terrific half-day tour of Coromandel. Great attention to details for our comfort along the way as we slogged through sandy trails to Cathedral Cove and Hot Water Beach.
