Wendy had extensive local knowledge and a flexible timetable. The sand dune surfing was the highlight - even for old guys!! Wendy's an expert driver, this includes advising Top Gear when they visited 90 Mile Beach. We had an absolute brilliant day.

The weather cooperated, ourdriver/guide Buzz was informative and friendly. Lunch was plentiful and delicious. Ninety Mile Beach was awesome. The sandboarding at Te Paki Stream was exhilarating. Cape Reinga views are stupendous and the Maori legend very moving. A more perfect day could not been had!
