We enjoyed our tour with Waru, he was a knowledgeable guide with heaps of local info to share, and a very good driver. We got to see all the sights, and he got our group onto the best part of the giant Te paki sand dunes for riding down- smooth and fast:) good amount of time at each stop. Long... More

Was recommended this particular company for a tour to Cape Reinga - can see why, a great day and spectacular value for money. $150 for two adults and two children for a full day trip including lunch, valuable commentary and an assortment of not necessarily completely PC jokes from Robin, the guide (gotta love a guide who refers to the...

Harrisons were recommended by friends who had done this trip previously. This was an awesome trip with a fantastic driver (Waru) who provided great commentary throughout the day and who had a great sense of humour which made the day very relaxed and enjoyable. Sand dunes boogie boarding was a highlight for me and the kids, so much fun with... More

One of the guys at the Bay of Islands vintage railway (Kawakawa) recommended Harrison's to us and we're so glad we took his advice. We spent a full day driving to Cape Reinga via the state highway, visiting the lighthouse, a drive back along the 90-mile beach and we bought some souvenirs in Kauri wood at the ice-cream stop on...

We got picked up by Harrisons from our motel in kaitaia and did the day trip to cape reinga and back. It was a fantastic experience! Our driver, Pat, was friendly and informative. Our group contained a lot of people from overseas and they loved the experience! Would highly recommend.

A very enjoyable day spent touring the far north of NZ. Waru was a very friendly & informative tour guide. Four of our family group of 8 had a ball on the sand toboggans on the 90 mile beach. The other four were either too old, too young, not fit enough to climb the dunes or just too chicken to... More
