What an amazing day for $50. Sand dunes for tobogganing , beautiful beaches to swim in, scenery to die for and the landmark at the top of NZ where the Pacific Ocean meets the Tasman Sea. Robin, the driver was very informative and his jokes were enjoyable. Great value for a great day out.

Harrison Cape Runner tour is the best. Sand tobogganing down sand dunes was amazing. Our stop for lunch where we could swim was great. Our driver was knowledgeable and well versed in the area's attractions and past history

This bus tour was a real find. Parked in their secure yard and boarded the large wheeled bus. Robin was our driver for the day, he was most informative about the various areas we drove through and kept the Kiwi jokes coming, keep it up Robin, good to hear them especially the 4 parachutes one. First we drove along Ninety... More

We travelled at the end of the season, end-March, and booking was essential even then. At 50 NZD this is excellent value with a number of stops at attractive locations on the way to Cape Reinga, one for lunch (basic, but included in the price), then boogie boarding on the sand dunes and a ride back along 90 Mile Beach.

My boyfriend and I booked this tour in the office in Kaitia with one of the owners. She was so lovely and gave us a brief history on the Kauri tree and on what our trip would be like. We got picked up by Simon, who was the funniest tour guide and made us all feel very comfortable. The tour... More

Cape Reinga is the most northerly point of New Zealand. Take a tour, don't bother to drive the 90 miles and back. Tour gives you plenty of time to walk down to the Cape. It is a downhill walk but if you are willing to push a wheelchair, that is possible, but it is uphill on the way back! The... More

Great tour guide, full of Maori knowledge. A big bus made for running along the 90Km beach. Good stops at various sites. Great slides on the boogie boards down the dunes (even if I did dislocate my finger and scrape my face - my own fault, just having fun) Take this tour, don't think you can take your own car,...
