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.

The trip was excellent the only thing that mared it slights was the lunch (too early and poor quality food, supposed to be barbequed) and fact that I had to rearrange some passengers so that I could sit next to my wife. Sand boarding was a highlight, make sure you have plenty of water!

Well informed and entertaining driver. The trip was all we expected and hoped it would be.

All in all a good tour, but I would train drivers to provide more historical and environmental information instead of many personal stories and serve more local produce (different types of fish) and real coffee for lunch instead of fish in lots of batter with many cold salads and instant coffee.

This was o.k. More for older people, and the kauri forest we visited wasn't that impressive (though we heard of far more impressive ones from other travelers we met). The place we stop at for brekky and afternoon tea was also pretty average.
All in all, it was a somewhat underwhelming tour, though the lighthouse itself was pretty cool.

Well, we thought this was the most boring, expensive non event of our trip. The only thing that was good was the sand boarding - for those that could do it. 64 miles of travelling on a beach didn't cut it for us, nor did the fact that the booking clerk got it wrong, and we were left waiting for half an hour before they realised their mistake, before they picked us up. Then we were the last to be dropped off the bus... at the entrance to the Holiday Park some 600 metres of a walk - fine for able bodies, but I have a stick and that was the last gasp. 11 hours - ugh!
