Wowzer - what an excellent day out! We were out for 9 hours and the time flew by. The tour drives 240KMs. However they stop regularly here and there at hidden gem beaches so you never feel bored. Lunch was BBQ and salad on a beach and was yummy! The lighthouse was great. The sand dune surfing was real fun.... More

Wendy was a fantastic host on our day trip to Cape Reinga! She had interesting facts about everything on the tour and seemed to know everyone we drove past. Her experience and knowledge of the area was just astounding and she had plenty more to offer for any further questions we had. The sand boarding was also loads of fun... More

We had a great day with Wendy on the Bus Trip to Cape Regina. Got a good commentary of the local area and regular stops for breaks, ice creams, avocados, etc., Well organised BBQ lunch and fantastic rides down the sand dunes on surf boards. A real friendly day and fabulous views.. I would recommend over other companies especially as... More

The day trip with Sand Safaris is one I can't recommend highly enough. For a full day's activity and lunch included for $55, it's a really great deal. I went in a truck-bus (a truck with a bus-like trailer with aircon), which picked everyone up from their various hotels in a few towns. Once everyone was collected, it was a... More

Another huge thumbs up for Wendy! Irreverent, hugely knowledgable in local folklore and the only person I have met that can hoot to get a "turkey" to come and be hand fed. (She even provided the bread) loved the time on the 90 mile beach, thought the timing to come off was about right, so much else to see on... More

We travelled with Sand Safari to the Cape Reinga and 90 mile beach. Driver Wendy was very experienced and very good. She made sure we were given a lot of information as well as enjoyed the trip. The BBQ lunch was very good. Tasty and plenty of it. The only criticism we might have is the time spent on the... More

With friends visiting from England, we wanted to show them a unique Kiwi experience, and on this day trip, it was exactly what they got! It was a blast! Thank you Wendy, for some fun memories. Our friends and children enjoyed this day immensely and we will all remember those famous northland "turkeys"! Wendy was a good safe driver, with... More

Took the family on this tour in January and thoroughly enjoyed it! This tour is outstanding value for money! The bus picked us up at 8:30am and dropped us off at 4:30, so it is a full day out and only $150 for a family of four. Includes a BBQ lunch at beautiful Tapotupotu Beach. Driver/Tour Guide Wendy gave an... More

On the same day that Elizabeth K went on the tour, I sent some of my friends on this tour. They had a totally different experience from Elizabeth. In fact they enjoyed the unscripted moments, these people can go with the flow. They were safe, they liked the drivers and they got feed, all for $50.00 per person. Also in... More
