“Great Service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014

"The team of "Coromandel Adventures" showed us (a family of five) the wonderful Coromandel Peninsula and gave our New Zealand/Australia holiday a perfect start. They were very friendly, patient and supportive (even organising our luggage). We loved every minute and will come back.

“Did not deliver on all fronts”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014

I chose the afternoon tour where we stopped off at points along the peninsula to take pictures. One of the key points for me was to take some pictures of the sunset which was stunning! Alas Willy the driver missed sunset!!! How i not know and instead of stopping any any decent location to capture this he was fixated on driving to the location he knows. In sun overall decent tour however, the massive fail on the drivers part to stop for sunset (with no real apologies) is a big failure for me hence rating of 2.

The Northern Escape is a spectacular 6 hour tour up to the remote tip of the Coromandel Peninsula. The dramatic coastal views and remote scenery are appreciated by clients on our tours and are a delight for photographers.
We do our best to make the most of conditions on the day - we showcase nature but are unable to control it and do not apologise for it. The guide was at the best viewing point 8 minutes before sunset but unfortunately on this occasion although there was some beautiful light early in the evening the sunset was extinguished by a thick band of low cloud on the horizon - the possibility of which was explained several times.
We hope you appreciated the many other photographic opportunities provided throughout the trip.

“Beyond Awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

I have always been impressed by how Sarni helps everyone and organises peoples trips on the bus but never needed any help myself. However recently I was stuck in Coromandel for the night and she was a real lifesaver.
I stayed at The Treehouse which was lovely and she helped me with a hiccup I had with the ferry.
I really can't recommend Coromandel Adventures and The Treehouse highly enough, not only from this trip but the many times previously I have seen the Coromandel Adventures team at work. Thank you!

“Awesome weekend work trip away”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

Our company needed a place close too Auckland for the team of 17 to spend a weekend away. After contacting Sarni at Coromandel Adventures everything was taken care of instantly and Sarni went out of her way to accommodate our requirements to make it all fit within the hours available to us.
We had a full on weekend starting with the train trip at Brigham Creek, which we all thoroughly enjoyed, followed by a drive up to Stoney Bay. On arrival there we were provided with a beautiful picnic lunch with food in abundance. After lunch the fit ones among us did the walk from Stoney Bay to Fletcher bay (3 hours) while the not so fit ones were taken on a further tour along the top of the Coromandel. Our very knowledgeable driver Willie from Coromandel Adventures drove around and collected us later on from Fletcher Bay. Willie's passion for the Coromandel stands out in his commentary of the area and all the historic spots pointed out to us on our drive. We couldn't have wished for a better driver Willie! We were also lucky enough to spot some whales on the way back.
On the Sunday we were driven to the Matarangi Golf Course where we had a morning session of Ambrose golf and our trip finished off with a lunch at Kuaotunu Beach.
From when we arrived by ferry on the Friday evening to being dropped back at the wharf to return to Auckland on the Sunday afternoon we can honestly say it has been a fantastic well organised trip thanks to Coromandel Adventures. Thank you so much Sarni and Willie for making this a very memorable weekend for all of us. It was much appreciated.
