The bus very old, when it rained the rust between window pillars leaked pouring water on me..... had to move, just as well it wasn't full. Lunch was pretty miserable no fresh food in sight. The place is magic and the driver was safe.

There is some truth in previous comments on the coach condition, lunch quality and the drivers jokes but...... We paid about half of what Fullers wanted, I do not want a posh and expensive lunch as we eat mainly in the evening, the coach was reliable and did not distract from the experience and the drivers jokes were not that...

We just thoroughly enjoyed our day trip out to Cape Reinga with Harrisons Cape Runner. Apart from being very informative, Robin, our driver had a wicked sense of humour and our day was spent enjoying his commentary and the beautiful scenery. Our $50 day cost was amazing compared to other companies and our lunch, albeit just a bread roll sandwich... More

I wish to not only praise this tour which I took today but to confirm some comments and debunk some myths. We did this tour this morning, my wife, 2 kids (6 and 4) and me. The cost of doing the trip with Harrisons was less than 1/3 of the other guys but we had to drive to Kaitaia from... More

We tossed up about whether to book this tour, because as a Kiwi family we don't usually "play tourist" in our own country, preferring to do our own thing. But as we had a rental car, and wanted to drive on 90 mile Beach, which is not covered by rental insurance, we decided a tour was the way to go.... More

Harrisons Cape Runner is a marvellous way of exploring the Far north of NZ, learning the history and also having some fun like sliding down sand dunes and driving along 90 mile beach in a coach. Although I had done this before with a different company my partner had not and my budget was limited. In Paihia you pay over... More

We couldn't leave NZ without having been to all of the most Northern attractions so we decided to take a tour with Harrison's - and we didn't regret it! First of all, when we arrived they told us we were the only ones that day. As we had to head back home to Europe the next day, we coudln't join... More

We were picked up at our accommodation on time and immediately felt very comfortable with our driver, Robert, as he was very welcoming. The coach was comfortable, the commentary informative and the lunch supplied was very enjoyable in a lovely location. Harrison's go out of their way to take you to the 'off the road' sights. After lunch we were... More

We had a great time in the Cape Runner tour. The sites that we visited were great. The cape walk is nice and great place for photos where the oceans meet. We highly recommend this tour so that you do not have to navigate to the cape on the narrow roads and can come back on 90 mile beach.

This is a proper day out with lunch supplied and a fairly detailed look at Cape Reinga itself, the area, its history and of course the run up 90 Mile Beach. Our guide was Jason (Jasonui) who was as funny as he was informative. There were plenty of stops including a nice home-style picnic buffet lunch. All this for 50NZ$... More
