Outstanding Tour!!
We wanted to experience the world outside of Auckland, and Go Wander exceeded all expectations. The bus was clean, the beaches were beautiful, and the ice cream was delicious. Our tour guide Mark answered questions, took pictures for us (lots of pictures), even jumped off a rock into the water with us. We will use Go Wander every time we’re in Auckland and will recommend it to anyone visiting!!

Perfect adventure!
Feb. 2020 • Couples
This trip was beyond perfect. Mark was our guide and was an instant friend. The memories on the trip and the friends made were priceless. Mark had incredible knowledge about the island, accomodated everyone on the tour and side note ...had a great playlist in the van! We definitely lucked out with a really cohesive group. I would love to go on another adventure with Mark. I would highly recommend getting on this adventure with Go Wander! You will be happy that you did! Cheers!

A well organised and thoroughly enjoyable day out!
Jan. 2020
I thoroughly enjoyed my day trip from Auckland to the Coromandel Peninsula. Led by Mark, our small group was able to enjoy good weather throughout the trip.

Along the way we stopped at various points of interest, but my highlight would have to be the afternoon, which allowed us to walk to Cathedral Cove. I had ample time to really take in the sights here, and was grateful of the tip to explore the other bays along the way, which were much less busy than Cathedral Cove.

Overall, the day ran smoothly, I felt safe and well looked after and I managed to capture lots of photos and memories to remind me of my trip.

A long beautiful day, Thank you!
This was an excellent trip to the Coromandel. Mark our guide/driver was fantastic. Great conversation, knowledge, and encouragement. (There were some pretty strenuous hikes) The scenery at every stop was breath taking. A postcard shot in every direction. Hot water beach was amazing, literally scalding hot in some areas. Grab your shovel and dig. Awesome. We stopped at Mount Paaku an extinct volcano as a sub for the closed scheduled first stop. We sure didn't feel like we missed anything. Cathedral Cove was the final stop and wow. The hike down to the beach is a serious hike. You need shoes, and be reasonably fit. It's a 45 minute hike over a good but steep track. And you have to do it again on the way back. Definitely not nothing this hike. That being said it is worth every step. A little crowded at the main beach but Stingray Bay is along the way and less busy. Love this tour, the value was exceptional, and Mark was superb. Hightest recommendation.

We had such a wonderful experience! I booked this excursion for my mom, sister and myself. We loved it. The bus is very comfortable. The stops are perfectly timed and spaced out. We never felt rushed and were able to fully experience each. Our guide was beyond awesome! So nice, professional, informative & just a cool person. Hike at Karangaheke - gorgeous views, awesome history. Hot Springs - super fun, unique experience (pro tip: don’t bother digging your own hole! Ask if you can hop in w/ someone who already has hot water flowing LOL). Cathedral Cove - great beach & amazing views (pro tip: Go to Sting Ray Bay! It’s quieter, way less people & see stingrays!) We also ended our trip w/ a stop for ice cream. The day couldn’t have ended better LOL Very happy we booked this excursion w/ this company!

We are a group of three really enjoyed the wonderful trip. Cathedral Cove is definitely amazing. Although Hot Water Beach was quite busy on 24th Dec as Christmas holiday, the experience was nice as well. Karangahake walkway has many highlights, parts of walking are inside the mine. Mark, the tour guide, is very cool and his recommendation food place is great. We had lunch in the pour house and I really like its pizza and mussels.

Wow what a day we had!! I have never been on a tour that was so relaxed before, just what I wanted. Mark tells you bits and bobs about the area you are in and the things you're going to see but apart from that he let's you get on with it and enjoy it for what it is.
Totally worth the money considering how many places we went to, the van you travel in is awesome as well, if you get a bit travel sick you can always sit up front =)

Would totally recommend if you're just looking for a relaxed atmosphere where you don't have to deal with kids either

Great day trip out to the Coromandel! Mark and Darraugh not only know the area, but they’re both really cool guys and make the trip that much more enjoyable and cohesive with the rest of the group. Really lucked out on this tour, the sights were incredible and while we covered multiple spots, they were really good about not rushing us from one place to the next. Really great day, can’t wait to book another tour with these guys!

We had a really enjoyable time on this tour of the Coromandel. Mark was a terrific guide and very knowledgeable while showing us the highlights of the peninsula. We managed to pack so much into the day but at no point did we feel rushed. Everything was done at an enjoyable relaxed pace. Can't wait to try out another Go Wander tour!!
