Lovely day out
, Feb 2020
Lovely day out with a friendly and personable guide. Hits all the top spots in the area and cheaper than renting a car. There’s a good bit of driving but you can just sit back and enjoy the views. The guide drops you to the walks, parks the bus and catches up with you to make the most of the time. Plenty of walking opportunities mixed in with shop/food/toilet breaks.

Wonderful guide
, Feb 2020
Mark is great! I will recommend this tour for younger travelers who love beaches but not for people who like easy pace. Lots of driving around for little beach time. One can find beautiful beaches near Auckland itself Guide Mark is wonderful and took great care of the group. Provided good information and guided us through out the trip. Few improvement suggestions- list pickup point clearly as first time visitor do not know the area well - remind travelers to bring beach towels as without it beach cannot be enjoyed

Hi there thank you for your feedback which we love to hear, the pick up location is in fact given and we definitely do recomend a towel for this tour as well as many other things. But thank you for bringing this to our attention and we will make sure that the information is clear and viable for all to see. The Coromandel peninsula is a treasured part of New Zealand that I thoroughly enjoy showing to visitors, it is also a long but scenic drive which I always make sure people are aware of at the beginning of the tour. I do hope you enjoyed the day as we love meeting visitors and showing them around these great spots. Happy travelling. Kia Ora Mark
