Superb day out to the wild Cape, driving on the beach, and dune-boarding
Awesome bus driver. He knew all the plants names as I study plants for my Landscaping business. Weather was perfect.. People were fun!
Long but enjoyable day made all the more interesting by our coach drive/guide.
Great day trip, beautiful scenery and knowledgable guide. Worth the money.
A long day but worth it. Only in New Zealand would a bus be taken on a beach as part of the tour. Excellent guide with a passion for his subject.
What a wonderful day--walking the Kauri forest, riding on 90-mile beach, sand boarding on the dunes, and hiking up to Cape Reinga.
Even though it was raining off and on all day, this was a wonderful trip ! Our bus driver was so informative, and truly wanted us to enjoy the day. The drive out on 90 mile beach was amazing no rain then and the drive through the stream to get to the sand dunes was exciting no rain then either . But going on the Cape, with wild weather, was the highlight ! There is a somewhat steep walk down/up at the Cape on a paved path. We loved the full day !
Well organised. Informative driver - without information overload
Loved the short stop to see the kauri trees
Long day - although there are several stops, do bring extra drinks with you.

I thought 11 hours would be brutal, but it flew by. We had lousy weather and poor visibility, but Jackie made it so fun. The history and stories were great. Nice group we went with. 2 top highlights were riding on 90 mile beach and sand surfing. All in all it was a great trip.
Brilliant trip, lots of varied experiences from sand dunes to Kauri giants, beach drive and excellent complimentary lunch. If you get the chance, take this trip.
We had already toured for two weeks the North and South islands and this trip ranked up at the top of the experiences we had.
This topography was not expected - how beautiful and if I would relocate to NZ this would be the region. Do It !!!!!
Great tour, very informative, fish and chip lunch was terrific. The run up the beach was interesting and fun when they turn in via a river bed. The real fun was the sandboarding, if you have the energy to walk up the sandhill you must give it a go.
Excellent Coach Driver from both a comfort view and gave very interesting commentaries.
Would recommend this trip to all visitors to the Bay of Islands
We all thoroughly enjoyed this trip. It was very well conducted and there was just enough time at each stop.
I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone visiting the Bay of Islands.
Great tour,lovely lunch in nice setting,great drive along the beach and great fun sand boarding.
Our lady driver was lovely.

A tour packed full of information and sights. Whilst there was a lot to cover all the stops were of sufficient time whilst keeping on the move to ensure we got everything in. The fish and chips for early lunch were excellent. It was quite surprising to find that the 2WD coach was not significantly different from usual even though it was to drive down a stream bed on to the 90 mile beach.
Great day - long but we did everything that was promised. Loved riding on the beach and sliding down the dunes! Our tour guide Tipianui did his very best to show us all a good time, and showed patience in herding the folks on and off the bus at our stops!
Our driver, Robin, was very knowledgable, friendly and helpful. The pick-up was punctual and Robin kept all passengers on schedule so we arrived back in Paihia at the advertised time. The timing between rest breaks / food stops was well paced, I would definitely recommend this tour.
We went on a particularly hot day and better air conditioning on the bus would have been appreciated.
Such a great trip. Knowledgeable driver/guide. A lot sucked into one day.
Top trip up to the Cape. The guide was the best. Always helpful. The views were to 'die for'. Really enjoyed the sand boarding.
This was an awesome tour. I would reccomend this to anyone visiting the Bay of Islands area !
this tour was made all the more interesting by our tour guide Chris who told us about the Maori tribes which he was one of Great tour motoring on 90 mile beach excellent fish and chips for lunch overlooking the water fabulous The Kauri trees amazing so much to see and do
