'Great Value Tour This is great value. You couldn't drive to the Cape, do all additional things such as the Swamp Kauri side trip, the sand surfing etc for this price. Plus a freshly cooked and ample lunch is included (not haute cuisine and only salad for vegetarians).
It would have been nice to spent more time at the Cape, but driving down Te Paki stream, the sand surfing and the trip down the "Ninety Mile" beach makes up for that.' Adrian S, Trip Advisor, March 2014
