    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Cathedral Cove Walk, 65 Grange Rd S, Hahei 3591 New Zealand

    This one-day tour from Auckland will leave you feeling like you just found paradise and you will feel relaxed in no time. Time seems to slow down in this part of the country, as you experience amazing beaches, famous coves, stunning forests and breathtaking views.

    On this tour we will pick you up from your hotel in our comfortable 12-seater mini bus, taking you on a scenic drive through the New Zealand countryside as we head to the incredible Coromandel Peninsula. Our first stop will be Cathedral Cove, the spot featuring in The Chronicles Of Narnia: Prince Caspian. Cathedral cove is one of New Zealand's most famous and beautiful beaches and a must do activity for any visitor to New Zealand. There are no roads to this beach so we will need to take a quick water taxi or bush walk to get there. Once we are there, we can take some time to relax, sunbathe, swim, play sport or just enjoy the spectacular views.

    Time for lunch at a great local restaurant where you can try some great local food, and even have a beer if you choose (food and drinks additional cost) .

    Our next stop is the famous Hot Water Beach, where you can dig a hole in the sand to create a naturally-heated geothermal water bath. *Tip: Dig your hole at the edge of the beach to allow ocean waves to gently roll in and cool you off occasionally. What could be better than a natural geothermal spa on the beach!

    Sadly, after Hot Water Beach it's time to make our way back to Auckland, but not without stopping for a quick ice-cream and some more photos.

    Duration: 3 hours

    Another excellent tour by Cheeky Kiwi. This is my 3rd Tour in NZ and Cheeky Kiwi. We got lucky on this tour as our group of 4, my husband, my best friend and her daughter were the only ones on these tour. I think this tour is not usually offered this time of the year but Cheeky

    We booked this tour because we had a day to spare in Auckland and expected very little. But Kreig and Mark made the entire day a truly fun and memorable experience for me, my wife and daughter. Coromandel peninsula is a long drive from Auckland, through winding roads over the

    Thanks for your in-depth review; we appreciate you taking the time. You guys were absolute troopers! We know you had to walk both into and out of Cathedral Cove; as of now the independently-operated water taxi is running, and so for the warmer months you have the luxury option of a zippy boat ride to/from the Cove. As for Hot Water Beach, I seem to recall your guides didn't just provide you with a shovel, but instead dug our the pools for you! (I know this because they were tired afterwards). :D We're glad you had a fabulous time on what, during summer, is one of our most popular adventures. Thanks again for your amazing review; to be rated the most hospitable company you came across on your entire New Zealand trip is a great honour indeed! Thank you so much!
