The trip was amazing. Our guide bus driver Robin was exceptional. Gave good history on the area as we rode along, We had the right amount of stops along the way for bathroom and getting a snack. Our lunch stop was a pleasant place along the water with great fish and chips. The right amount of tim3 was allowed so to be able to walk to Cape Reinga lighthouse. Beautiful scenery. The next stop to go sandboarding was a blast. Robin was wonderful in teaching us the right way to master the fun of sandboarding. The 90 mile ride on the beach along the Tasman sea was fabulous. It truly was an outstanding day,
This tour was excellent. There had been heavy rain the previous night which made for interesting scenery with water lapping the road in places. Our driver Robin was excellent, with plenty of information, but not constantly talking which could get tedious. He had great knowledge of the history and geography of the region, including Maori legends and the meanings of their place names.
We thoroughly enjoyed the trip to the Cape. The drive on the beach was amazing. Lots of useful information given. The Fish and Chip lunch was as much as we needed. We were collected from our Paihia motel on time and left at the Visitor centre as requested. We were very lucky to have a fine day as the previous and next days were rainy. The fit and younger ones enjoyed the sand boarding. Highly recommend this to everyone.
Even though it was raining off and on all day, this was a wonderful trip ! Our bus driver was so informative, and truly wanted us to enjoy the day. The drive out on 90 mile beach was amazing no rain then and the drive through the stream to get to the sand dunes was exciting no rain then either . But going on the Cape, with wild weather, was the highlight ! There is a somewhat steep walk down/up at the Cape on a paved path. We loved the full day !
