This was a super trip. We thought it might be a bit too long, but it worked out very well. Our guide was quite a character; whilst starting off pretty grumpy, when he warmed up he gave us a most interesting commentary, complete with some Maori songs and tales from his culture. Very good value and highly recommended.

Good day out, Wendy our driver \ guide picked us up from our camp site and kept us informed with local information during the trip. The weather was not the best on the day we went but that did not distract from our enjoyment. Drive along the beach and stop at the sand dunes both good fun, a few other stops to see interesting things and a walk to lighthouse, altogether a good day and value for money with a lunch included.

We could have driven ourselves but decided to book Sand Safari Tours instead. It was a great choice, the tour was great value for money. The tour guide was very informative and knew the area well. We stopped along the way so as to take advantage of some scenic photo opportunities. The lunch stop was at a secluded beach location. Sandwiches, tea, coffee and tea was provided (as part of the cost). Along the way we stopped at Te Kao Store famous for the massive ice cream servings. The Cape Reinga visit was great, had plenty of time to take as many photo's as required, before trekking back to the bus. The next attraction was the Giant sand dunes of Te Paki, this was great fun. Then came the drive down 90 Mile Beach, it was a fun drive down the beach where we saw the rough seas (on this day) and all the fishermen in their 4 wheel drives fishing off the beach. Then back to Awanui the last stop. All in all a wonderful trip, great value and Wendy our driver was informative and made the journey a lot of fun. Highly recommend Sand Safaris Cape Reinga Tours.

Our driver was very passionate about his history and culture giving a fun and informative commentary including songs and legends. He was from the local area so could answer any questions we had about why and when things had developed and changed. The views were stunning and we got to enjoy a nice lunch of sandwiches and homemade biscuits (included) on a glorious beach. I felt very safe with him driving us down 90 mile beach which can be very dangerous if you don't know what your doing due to tides and sand holes. Tabogganing down the dunes was fun but not quite as great as expected as the sand was so soft after a drought but still a bust do!
Couldn't of asked for a better time :-)

Sand Safari Tours are a great company who offer a really informative and fun tour. They picked us up from our backpackers in Ahipara and the guide was both professional and entertaining! As a kiwi going on this tour, I really appreciated the depth of information and stories shared by the guide. Definitely recommend this company if you are planning to go on a Cape Reinga tour (-:
