Long trip to drive on your own and our tour guide was very informative. Was thankful we hadn't purchased lunch as it was included for free and was a bowl of delicious fish and chips but not worth the purchasing price. Be prepared for a hike as it is quite a walk down to the Lighthouse and even steeper walk back. We needed the full 45 minutes they offered and many on our tour could not attempt. If you have a good camera you can still get great shots from up top .. It was an unbelievable experience to ride 90km per hour for 90 miles on the Beach! Getting out and walking that beautiful stretch was amazing as well!!

Good product, well delivered by the driver/guide Kevin. The promised BBQ lunch became, without explanation, a second grade buffet lunch - in itself, not value for money. Otherwise, an enjoyable experience.

Just do it! Great tour from the 100km trip up 90 Mile beach in a bus, to the sand boarding to the spiritual Cape Reinga we really enjoyed this trip.We also loved the small places we drove though, Monganui and all of Doubtless Bay is some of the best scenery in the world. Very much recommended.

It was a wonderful day. We did not do the sand boarding but had fun watching others. Certainly a great day out and did not seem to be an especially long day. Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

A Long day but worth it to be at the very top of NZ The drive through to the sand dunes was terrific. Dont know of many places that can be accessed by 4wd through a water course to massive sand dunes.

Fantastic day out with a very knowledgeable and friendly driver. Thought that the lunch provided was exceptional. It is a long day but a day that you could not cover if driving your own vehicle, nor as a tourist, find what we were taken to see.

Excellente journée bien que le temps n'ait pas été fantastique : on voyait le phare de Cape Reinga une fois arrivés dessous !
La virée en bus sur la plage et le surf sur les dunes sont vraiment excellents ! Notre chauffeur était génial !

Terrific day - Derek the driver/guide gave an excellent commentary of the area, flora and fauna, and culture - with a great sense of humour - and took us sand-boarding on the dunes - definitely a highlight of my holiday. Recommend this tour to anyone.

A really enjoyable day out, with a friendly, informative guide. Loved Cape Reinga. And digging for shellfish on the beach (though the Tasman Sea is as cold as the North Sea!)

An absolutely fantastic day trip. Whilst it is quite a long day and relatively early start, well worth it. The guide was extremely informative but not in an over-bearing way. The rainforest and beach were amazing. It was stunning to see the seas meet up by Cape Reinga and learn about Moari tradition. I would highly recommend the sand surfing, it's not as scary as it looks. The frequent convenience stops were good as was the food at those locations. Overall, a really varied and wonderful day, just be prepared for Sandfly (especially during summer months) - repellent at the ready!

We were very impressed with the organization that had been applied to the tour planning and application.
Our driver / tour guide Derek was very informative, entertaining and very accommodating. We felt we could not have been in better hands. We enjoyed the many stops we had but particularly the sand dunes experience. This was made most special because of Derek's interaction and support.
Thank You
