We were a bit apprehensive about booking an off-ship excursion on our own, but we're very happy we did with GetYourGuide. We booked the 5+ hour excursion which gave us a comprehensive tour of Watangi, Kerikeri, Haruru Falls, Mankana Chocolates, and the Kawiti Glowworm Caves. It was the best tour we've taken in our 15 years of continual traveling. The highlight was the Caves: the glowworms shine far above like the milky way. Unique, in our experience. What took it over the top for us was our guide Nick, who was excited about showing us his magnificent country. An excellent conversationalist, Nick engaged us in topics of our interest. All in all, the tour could not have been better.
Great flight up 90 mile beach and down over the east coast on the way back. Van to Cape reinga and surrounding beaches was fun and informative. Easily the best way to see the far north!
Great excursion, had enough time at each stop point and the driver was very knowledgeable. the driver was also flexible to our needs.
This was one of the best activities that we have done. Great guide, fabulous views, great way to see this part of New Zealand.
Absolute legends. Highly recommend the experience from arrival until your feet land on the ground again! The crew is good fun.
