This is such an amazing day trip and such great value for money. Robin our bus driver with all the local knowledge made it a fun and entertaining trip from our journey along 90 mile beach with all his hilarious stories and historical accounts, to the journey up a river bed which was sometimes nail biting to surfing down the...

When the bus arrived at the Kauri Kingdom rendezvous point we looked at it and thought "oh oh, we messed up here", but to our absolute delight we were very wrong. Koro was fantastic from the get go. Welcoming, humorous, and knowledgeable. And the bus, although older than the other one parked in the lot, was perfectly suited to the... More

This trip would have to be one of the best value tourist attractions in NZ. The whole day with really good commentary, fantastic sights, a great lunch and a really entertaining driver called Robin and all for NZ50 dollars per person. Would thoroughly recommend this trip rather than trying to do it on your own.

There are so many words to describe this activity.... windy, hot, cold, beautiful, amazing, unbelievable.... and so many, many more. Our guide was Robin and he was fabulous! His jokes were the best in the world and he made them funnier by giggle at every one. This is a full day tour and worth every penny and minute! Where else... More

Had the best day thanks to Harrison's. It's the off season and rained all day but still had a great time. We are normally independent travelers, but would have never have seen or learned so much without this trip. So stress free and nicest people from start to finish. Jason (or Jason Nui to be correct) was so entertaining and... More

If there is heaven on earth, this is it - this is it! We visited Cape Reinga, NZ in June 2014. One of the most beautiful places to sea. It was part of the Kaitaia - Ninety Mile Beach - Cape Reinga day tour. Most economical tour that included lunch. We boarded the bus from Kaitaia and visited the Ninety... More

Just came back from doing this day trip with Harrisons, Cape Runner and it was great :) Our driver: Robin, was brilliant. A great guy who despite having the quietest day that week (there was only four of us but the next day looked like 16!) was still funny, and knew his stuff. The sandboarding was great fun and 90...

This is probably the cheapest or one of the cheapest tours (Along with Sand Safari). I believe they are the only 2 local companies, the bigger companies do pickup from Paihia as opposed to Kaitaia. I went with Harrisons as the Sand Safari had their buses under repair. Called through to book my place 3 days in advance and was... More

Recently we had family take the trip to The Cape with Harrison's. They came back with very positive feedback. I was keen to do the trip myself when we had a friend stay last week from Oz. We both would recommend this day trip to all considering. Very good value for money, varied points of interest and Simon our leader... More
