Escape the bustle of Auckland for a day on this convenient day trip to the Coromandel Peninsula. A variety of activities are included, to make the most of your time in this naturally beautiful area: hike to Cathedral Cove, swim in the crystal waters, climb Mount Paku, and dig your own spa bath at Hot Water Beach. All on a handy organized day trip.
Our day excision outside of Auckland could not have been better. From start to finish our guide Clay had everything planned efficiently. We usually avoid tours while on vacation but if we wanted to see the Coromandel area it was the only logistical way to do it on this trip. Kiwi tours are small group which is great. We felt like locals at the cafe stops as Clay knows everyone and was warmly greeted everywhere. Our “winter" weather could not have been better and Clay’s knowledge at the hot springs beach made enjoying a relaxing soak effortless and heavenly! Even though it was winter it was wonderful and no crowds!It is well known Coromandel is a beautiful part of the world and Kiwi Tours helped us enjoy it to the maximum. Thank you Clay!
This was fantastic. Beautiful scenery and loads of fun. Would highly recommend this tour. Learned a lot and the driver was extremely friendly and informative.
Excellent trio. Well worth the driving time
The views were fantastic, must be some of the best in NZ. Our guide and driver, Bones was excellent with great information and keeping us amused during the long day. Well worth it, dont miss out book it.
Had a fantastic trip. The guide (sorry have totally forgotten his name) was very attentive throughout the day. He made sure we were all happy, he is a very personable guy, nothing was too much trouble. Highly recommend this trip
Excellent day with Kiwi Day Trips. Great to travel in a small group 8 driver Clay. Just a quick stop on way for coffee/breakfast...straight to Hot Water Beach where shovels were provided and Clay started off the digging in the approprate places for us to get a nice warm personal spa! Had plenty of time to experience this phenomenon and a dip in the sea...which was also warm...! Next Cathedral Cove, which was an up and downhill walk of about 30 mins each way...but it is well worth it. 2 gorgeous beaches connected by the cavenous hole in the cliff. Time for lots of photos and a swim...the water seemed a bit cooler here at first, but was fine in a couple of minutes...quite strong waves! On to lunch - Only disappointment was Hot Waves Cafe being closed, but we went on to a Holiday Park with micro-brewery and restaurant...which was fine. A very nice extra to alot of other tours was a trip up Mt Paku with views over Tairua Harbour and a short stop at a beach in Tairua to see Mt Paku from below too before return home.
The day was helped by the fabulous hot weather!!
Clay was at all times kind, helpful, attentive and gave clear instructions on timing etc. A new company that deserves to do well.
Thanks clay for making my last day in Auckland full of joy laugh and adventurous, thanks for all the information. I had a blast
Clay was our driver for the Coromandel Day Trip - Excellent guy! We first travelled to Hot Water Beach and enjoyed the long walks. Then, it was Cathedral Cove - what a natural wonder! Took around 30 mins to go down and around the same time to climb up. Clay took us to Hot Waves Cafe - had a nice lunch and got some souvenirs too! Mount Paaku was our last stop - Breathtaking views!
Good job, Clay!
Excellent tour and guide. The day was planned perfectly and was very enjoyable.
For those of you short on time, I highly recommend this day trip to to the beautiful Coromandel Peninsula. Clay was an absolutely wonderful guide/driver. He's super friendly and let us know what the day's schedule would be like so there was structure to the tour. Talking to Clay was also great, he's such an interesting and knowledgeable guy!
The tour was conducted in a nice small group so it felt more personalised and not too rushed - you definitely would not get that with those big coach tours.
Each spot we were brought to Mount Paku, Cathedral Cove, and Hot Water Beach was stunning. The lunch spot Clay brought us to also served a great selection of food, which I was pleasantly surprised by, as some tours don't include a lunch stop or you have to make do with some lousy fare.
Thank you for such a great day trip!
