Would highly recommend the tour.
Mike & Sue Williamson, New Zealand. July 2012
Really enjoyed the day. Very informative talk by a person knowledgeable of the history and ecology of the region. Appreciated her insights and anecdotes. Enjoyed the refreshments. The map was great for the walk, so we knew where we were and how far to go till the end.
Highlights - The view from the seat on the walk, magic!
- Awesome seeing wood pigeons
- The view and pohutukawas in Poley Bay.
D&J Smith, New Zealand. June 2012.

Barbara is a great driver (makes you feel safe!) And full of wonderful information about the Coromandel's plant life, population and history. She is a salt-of-the-earth kinda gal who is a pleasure to share the day with! Highlight was the lookout on the trail - just amazing!

Beautiful views and walk - lots of good information from Barbara - perfect service - would do it again - perfect weather - a wonderful experience.
Claudia & Josef Bosch, Germany. March 2012.
The trip "did what it said on the tin". An excellent day which exceeded our expectations. A great way to get access to a remote part of the Peninsula. The commentary was full of interest and 'humanised' the area. Stunning views, lovely walk, and appreciated the tea and cake at the end. We would recommend unreservedly!
Si & Molly Gordon, Northern Ireland. February 2012
Absolute highlight of our 3rd holiday in NZ! Comparable with eg. Akaroa / Abel Tasman / Queen Charlotte tracks. We were fully satisfied with the services of Barbara - go on the same way in future! PS - worth the price!
Marianne & Walter Brodbeck, Switzerland. February 2012
As a Kiwi I have done a lot of the famous walks in NZ but this one is unique. The dappled light of the tea-trees on the forest path and the stunning views of bay and ocean are not like any other place I have seen. Barbara's commentary is fascinating and makes the scenery come to life. A HIGHLY recommended tour.
Wendy and Ron Smith, New Zealand. February 2012.
Didn't do walk but thoroughly enjoyed the drive and scenery. Driver - Barbara - excellent.
Lady J. McHattie, Jeff Carrick, England. February 2012

The tour was first class and the walk sensational.. Real proud to be a Kiwi! Very informative commentary by Michael. Only thought - why isn't the rest of New Zealand up here?
David Carracross, New Zealand. November 2011.
GOOD VALUE, the road trip alone would cost you more with wear and tear on
your own vehicle.
Wayne Morris, New Zealand. October 2011
Highlights - the information about the area, and the fact that anything we wanted was no problem. Friendly and helpful driver, Michael.
Joyce Mattson, New Zealand. October 2011
Absolutely wonderful - scenery stunning. The commentary by the driver, Michael, very informative especially about the history of the area and the families who have owned land for generations. Also the birdlife and the fauna. I recommend this tour to anyone who hasn't visited this beautiful part of the country.

Excellent tour. Lots of interesting comments during the day, with refreshing
morning and afternoon tea/coffee stops. We shall recommend this trip to

Wonderful trip, informative commentary. Weather today just great. Walked
most of NZ's tracks, this is one of the best. Views sensational. Terrific value
for money. Will come again.

John & Alex Sandford, England.
A wonderful informative day. Would recommend this trip to others. Excellent!

Fabulous trip, scenery spectacular, walk more difficult in parts than we
expected. The Coromandel is a very special area to be enjoyed by everyone
who values its uniqueness. Thank you Barbara for a great day.
Jean & John Sloman, Australia
Wonderful day trip. Particularly liked the excellent driving, anecdotal and historical commentary and the superb scenery. Also enjoyed accomplishing
the walk and delighted in the picnic-style afternoon tea which rewarded the walkers. Got some super photo shots. Well done, Barbara.
Damian, New Zealand.
Thank you very much for the opportunity to have a trip on the Coastal Walkway Tour. This is a fantastic product; I have travelled extensively and taken part in many day tours throughout the world. Our guide Barbara was great, she gave a very informative commentary without talking flat out, and it was very interesting.
I will not hesitate to recommend this to clients, friends and family as a great day out, it actually got me feeling very passionate about the Coromandel.
-Jacqui Williamson, Go Holidays!
What an amazing experience. The Coromandel Coastal Walkway is a wonderful tour from start to finish. The scenery is stunning and we are so lucky to have such an awesome place right on our doorstep. Barbara is a very professional driver and guide, and her knowledge of the area made the journey so special.
I always knew this was a great trip and this was proved beyond a doubt. Thoroughly recommend it. - Jan, New Zealand, Aotearoa
Highlights of the tour were; peace of the day, informative, varied, the coastal
walk, a good workout, bird life, swim at Sandy Bay, refreshing coffee and
biscuits, booklet handouts, delightful Barbara the driver.
- Pam Stapleton, New Zealand.
What a gorgeous area! We learned so much and had a fabulous time!
- Trevor & Michelle, California, USA
A very very pleasant journey. Barbara is very nice and explains all very well.
We have done a lot of tours with other companies in NZ, it's the first time we understand all the driver says. All is well organised and did with a lot of attentions.
- Beaume, French Polynesia
Highlights were access to scenery - well planned trip. Barbara's commentary informative, great background to a range of things. Excellent because it did
not come over as a prepared script.
- Vicki & Mike Simpson, Australia
Perfect day! Great scenery of the walk/ride is the highlight. Information
provided by the tour guide is much appreciated. Opportunity to know about
the area (past and present), plus nature and conservation, which of course is
such a big part of NZ - everyone should be told about it.
- Chaddy See, Hong Kong
Barbara was very congenial, informative and fun! We enjoyed our walk, but enjoyed our time with her equally as much. She is very knowledgeable and has
a warm, welcoming personality. Thanks so much.
- Mark & Amy Simmons, USA
From the moment we were collected at our motel on a perfect day in November, we were given the most amazing guided tour up to Fletcher Bay at the top of Coromandel Peninsula. There is no way we would have driven ourselves up
there. Our guide, Barbara had great knowledge of the local history and it's inhabitants. The Coastal Walk which took us just over 3 hours was magnificent. The scenery was spectacular and would rate with anything in the world. Not too difficult for a couple of 60 year olds but just strenuous enough to make you feel great. We were collected at Stony Bay and treated to a very welcome "cuppa"
and then driven back to Coromandel. The driving was difficult as the road
hadn't been graded for some time, but Barbara seemed to know every pothole
and circumnavigated them with amazing expertise. A fantastic 8 hours that we would thoroughly recommend.
