Best value day out. Up the 90 mile beach to cape reinga and return via beaches and Tip Top ice cream. Driver Simon shared fun commentary and kept us amused. Sand toboggan was brilliant too. Lunch provided too.

Really enjoyed our trip with Robyn up to Cape Reinga. His local knowledge really added to the trip and meant we found out info we would never have known if we went alone. It was a busy, fun, full day out with lots of breaks at amazing spots. Loved the sand dunes, although a first aid kit might be a... More

This trip is one of the best that we have done in NZ. Great value for money, it really is a full day out which gives you a variety of experiences along the way. Simon was a wealth of knowledge and added to the fun with his jokes and singing....we really learnt a lot, enjoyed the commentary and amazing scenery.... More

Great vehicle for the purpose, well driven by the very genuine Simon who provided a really interesting commentary with his good knowledge of the area and Maori background; but never in your face or too corny. Plenty of time provided at the Cape to wallow in the wonderful atmosphere, with other fascinating stops en route. Lunch was reasonably basic but... More

From the moment we joined the bus at the Ancient Kauri Kingdom Robin had us enthralled, he gave an interesting commentary, delivered in an engaging way, despite doing this day in day out, and kept us anticipating his next comment or witticism. This was a great way to see the top of Northland, and even for 4 of us it... More

really interesting trip, much better done on this coach than in your own car! Excellent value for all the activity included. Great way to see the main features of the area. Very good driver.the only negative was the included lunch, which was truly awful. Take your own food is my advice. This tour is good enough value without the lunch.... More

We did the 90 Mile Beach bus tour to Cape Reinga with Harrisons. We enjoyed the whole trip which encompassed a drive along the beach, into the sand hills to do some sand surfing on the enormous sand dunes, lunch by the beach and finally the Cape. It was a full day rounded out by our driver who lightened the... More

We were collected from motor camp by Robin, our driver and from the time we stepped on the unimog we were safe, welcome and entertained with a non-intrusive commentary. Awesome, awesome, awesome - and a very adequate lunch too! Lots of small stops on the way to the Cape, time allowed to walk out to the lighthouse and back before... More
