Willy was absolutely hilarious and had us all smiling and laughing throughout the entire 11 hour trip! Also made some... More

We went with Fullers Great Sights and were picked up and dropped off from our motel. Our driver Kevin was amazing - he gave us info about everything - farming, Maori history, geography, business, wildlife etc. He really knows this area. We stopped at at Kauri forest for a walk around, morning tea at a nice beach, lunch at another... More

Cape Reinga is one of the northernmost points of New Zealand's North Island, being some 100 km from the nearest small town of Kaitaia and is the area in which the Maories first landed when they followed the godwits from the Polynesian islands and made their home here. It is a sacred place for them, which is why no picnicing... More

We have always wanted to see it. Now we have. It takes 3 plus 3 hours to get there and get back to Paihia, but every minute is worth it.

We booked with Fullers GreatSights and had an incredible tour with our driver, Robin. Robin was a wealth of information on the area, the wildlife, forests, history and more. We drove up 90 mile beach in the morning as the tide was on its way in - tours the following week would drive down the beach in the afternoon! We... More

This was a fun trip to the tip of the North Island with Great Sights/Fuller Coach, although a long day on a full bus. The scenery varied from an hour riding right on the beach to sand surfing down the dunes, to the lighthouse, to rolling hills, to dense forest, and even included a fish and chips lunch. Our driver...

Harrisons Tours an excellent way to visit these areas, Our giude Waru was a bundle of laughs and really cared that we enjoyed ourselves. He was particular about showing us safe beaches on the way to Cape Reinga and in caring about the environment. He would not, however, reveal the location of his favourite fishing spots. Encouraged all tourists to... More
