Day trip to Hot Water Beach & Cathedral Cove - September 2019
, Oct 2019
I had the best time with Rach (our tour guide/driver)! Our day began and ended with a rainbow ... that pretty much sums up how magical the day was. It was a stunning ride in a comfortable van - Rach shared interesting stories and history as we cruised through green like I have never seen before. Hot Water Beach is so amazing - and even on a misty day as we had, the hot springs are so comfortable it really didn't matter that the skies were overcast! And Cathedral Cove was such a sacred and peaceful place. It was the highlight of my month in New Zealand. Rach brought us up a short hike with magnificent views for our picnic lunch to end the tour - just spectacular!
Our entire family of five enjoyed this tour. The views and experiences were wonderful. The hot water beach, in particular, was a truly unforgettable experience. Sue, our guide was great. She was energetic, informative, friendly and accommodating. The entire day, including lunch, was worth the bus time. I'm really glad we did this.
Clay was our host to the beautiful Cathedral Cove and Hot Water Beach. This is a must do! A long walk through the lush woods of NZ I found the secluded hidden gem to be magical and most worthwhile. Be warned to wear comfortable shoes!!! Please do not miss this and could not have asked for a better host. He was fun informative and positive!
