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

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
