We had a great trip and really enjoyed the beaches and walking trails around Coromandel. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and supportive. We hadn't anticipated the challenging walk to Cathedral Cove, but it was well worth it.

The tour guide was really knowledgeable and helpful to everyone. We enjoyed it a lot. I would strongly recommend visiting these two places. Overall, our experience with the tour agency was smooth and satisfying.

My partner and I really enjoyed this tour. It was beautiful, fun, active, and with lots of interesting facts.

Linda was very helpful and informative. We enjoyed waiotapu and waimangu — beautiful places to view.

Amazing, just the best! Brian was a brilliant guide, full of information. Thank you
