Great experience overall! Unfortunately the weather at Cape Reinga was extremely foggy but the trip was still worth it overall. Great experience.

Brilliant trip, well organised and worth the cost. We were blessed with good weather which meant that the views were magnificent. There was a fun bit at the end which involved us sandboarding down a giant dune before we got back on the plane.

Highly recommended and good value for money. Fog delayed the morning flight and therefore our departure by over an hour which could have perhaps been handled better by the ground staff. Only suggestion to improve is that the worst part of it was bouncing along in their bus to and from Paihia and the airstrip for approx 40 mins each way. We had a hired car and would have much preferred to have driven ourselves but were not aware that this was an option, or the distance involved, until afterwards. All in all though an experience to be remembered!!

Super Tour trotz "Smog" durch australische Brände
Alexandra_M
, Jan 2020
Vom Abholen bis zum Zurückbringen an die Unterkunft war alles gut organisiert. Unsere Pilotin startete und landete die kleine Maschine sicher und gekonnt trotz enormer Luftverwirblungen. Sie startete früher als geplant und "hetzte" zum Cape, dass aber nur damit wir vor Ort mehr Zeit hatten und vor den vielen Touristen da sein konnten. Das Sandboarden war toll, nachdem der extrem steile Anstieg mit hohem Gegen- und Seitenwind gemeistert war. Ein toller Zeitvertreib. Danke für diesen tollen Tag. Wenn dann nur mit Salt-Air!!!

Thank you very much for your wonderful review of our Cape Reinga Tour, certainly unusual for us to have smokey skies here from Australia!
