Great small group tour. The guides were very informative about the history of the region, and helpful about the potential challenges on some of the walking trails. A lot packed into a day trip!

This was our favorite tour during our stay in North Island Museum. We had a very informative guide who made us feel very comfortable and relaxed. We got to see many lambs, green pastures, and views of the rugged coastline. My wife and I especially enjoyed Cathedral Cove and the adjoining beach--the scenery is absolutely stunning. We stopped by the forest for an antique train ride, which was interesting but not the best use of our time. Another great spot was Hot Water Beach. Mini tubes of lava lie beneath the sand, and mini pools of hot water collect on the beach, giving many families and couples their own private jacuzzis. I would say the highlights were the hike down to Cathedral Cove and the free time we had to swim in the Tasman Sea/Pacific Ocean.

The two beaches we visited were quite amazing. Cathedral Caves beach is visually stunning with sandstone formations and caves along the beach. The Hot Water beach was really unusual. On approximately 100 feet of beach you can dig into the sand and hot water bubbles up creating these lovely warm spaces to soak in. Unique and fun....

Fantastic day in the coromandel.... made even better by our very knowledgeable tour guide/driver Alexander! Every place was different and the views amazing. Loved the railway trip especially. Also had good alternative option for us given we couldnt do cathedral cove too steep in way back up. Got to enjoy the views and the beach. Packed a lot in, small van comfort was 3xcrllent and the slightly higher price than others was totally worth it. Lunch was also excellent at hot beach cafe!

A very long day but we saw so much that it was well worth it. Options were available for those of us who had mobility issues and that was definitely appreciated. The Coromandel is gorgeous!
