We found this an excellent, well organised trip. 11 hours sounded a long time but it never felt that long with regular stops. The Coach Driver was brilliant - gave so much useful information and was really friendly and helpful - and as for the drive down 90 mile beach - that was one of the many highlights of our holiday! The BBQ lunch we found very good..
Would definately recommend this as a great day out.
Our guide for the day was Craig he was awesome. Kept us well informed of events and the areas history throughout. We were picked up promptly from the hotel. We participated in the optional bbq and were not disappointed. I have no hestitation in recommending your company and should I visit the area in the future will be in touch.
Absolutely enjoyed the trip. Got some amazing photos and would recommend as a must do for both tourists and NZer's. Remember that song- "We Don't Know How Lucky We Are" That's what came to mind as we travelled.

Excellent tour guide and driver Barry - full of enthusiasm for the job he knew such a lot about the area and was able to elaborate on so much of Maori Culture and life. Barry even sang Maori greetings and farewells. A must do trip!
A brilliant day out, interesting and informative and lots of fun.
We had a wonderful time - very well organised, professionally conducted, a lot of fun.
Great fun, excellent tour, driver/guide very knowledgeable.
Great trip the only minus is that the 11 hours was a little long and the seating alittle tight for larger people. Robin was our driver and was a wealth of information even it was a little stretched at times overall rating out of 10 with 10 being the highest we would give the overall experience 9.99%
Very good tour. Best part was the ride down the sand dune. Very enjoyable driver. Lunch was not up to expectations.
Had a fantastic coach driver (Huey), a wealth of knowledge. Loved Cape Reinga, sand dunes and driving along beach, Kauri Kingdom was average but buffet lunch was overpriced and very poor as agreed by all on coach.
T0ur guide was very good and kept us all interested and amused during the long day. We opted for the buffet meal but didn't consider the meal to be value for money and we had to eat at 10.30am which was too early iin the day. The walk down to the lighthouse was good (although we had inclement weather) and views were great, especially seeing where the Tasman and Pacific Oceans met. My husband took part in the sand boarding and thoroughly enjoyed the activity - thought he was a teenager again.
The coach driver was great a really nice friendly guy good commentary the only thing was the food stop was a bit of a scramble and not well set out, the food was mediocre. Of our four meals two persons fish was soggy and undercooked.
Sand boarding , beach drive, light house, creek traverse and a tyre blo9w out on the way home. A full, exciting event filled day.
Great day. Very informative with many points of interest. Loved the sand dunes.Would not been able to do this part of interest unless you are on a tour
Good local pickup. Tour was good and commentary good. Tried to recover sunken bus but failed even with three other coaches helping. Not sure if it was ever recovered. This most probably affected some of the trip but did not seem to be over rushed.
Our driver, Barry, was the best and friendliest driver ever! He kept us amused all the way through!
Wonderful landscape and an amazing trip. Only four stars because of the bad BBQ buffet lunch, which was not really BBQ but a really small and not good standard buffet. But the trip itself is amazing!
Great trip. 90 mile beach was great and the sand-boarding on the sand dunes was really good fun.
Cape Reinga is also a beautiful place
The trip itself was great. It would be good to know exactly what bus is picking you up though. I waited at the bus station for nearly an hour while various buses came and went - none of which were my bus.
Good trip the driver/guide was very informative and quite humorous. The scenery was spectacular and the drive along the 90 mile beach not to be missed.
A very enjoyable day and a MUST DO if visiting Bay of Islands. The trip up the beach was absolutely stunning with wild horses running alongside the bus. We stopped on the beach then sand boarded down the dunes, which was amazing. Our tour guide Wally was very experienced and knowledgeable and his singing was exceptional and very memorable. One tiny disappointment was our barbeque lunch which was not really a meat feast or a barbeque, but was cooked in a kitchen.
