This is a fabulous tour. I did the day/ night tour. Well worth the money. Tristan is extremely knowledgeable and easy to get along with. He was able to answer all my questions. Very comfortable transport and Tristan is a careful and considerate driver. Beautiful beach - virtually empty - and views. I didn't have a swim but don't forget your swimming things in case you want to take a dip. and a great walk through the bush. The sound of all the birds was amazing. We saw several threatened species and even saw a Kiwi during the night walk which was a stroke of luck as this is certainly not guaranteed. Great, healthy home-cooked food into the bargain which we had picnic style. Again, all comforts provided in terms of chairs, rugs and tents in case of rain or wind. Altogether a lovely day. I would recommend this tour to anyone wanting to experience the nature and wildlife of the North island.
