We (myself and two 15 year olds) were picked up by Derek right on time at 7:30 for our tour of the Far North (90 Mile Beach, Cape Reinga, sand dunes, etc). Very lucky as we had a personalised tour and very grateful it went ahead despite nobody else booking. It was well put together tour with good spaces between stops and great sights as well as well chosen places to pick up food, eat. The picnic food we picked up on the way was great and the afternoon tea stop on the way home also spot on. Derek was an amazing tour guide with lots of interesting information and just the right amount of talking and time to just chill. Great he is a sailor like my son so they were able to chat about that. Thank you so much for an amazing day and great value for money (especially since the kids still were a child rate whereas most other things we have been doing here they count as adults!).

An amazing & personalized tour organized by Mullarkey Tours. Our guide, Derek was extremely well-versed with the areas visited, and provided us with insightful nuggets of information that made every site that we visited even more meaningful. Kudos to excellent customer experience and the service rendered was exemplary!

We joined this tour from Mangonui, where we were staying for a couple of nights. After driving a long way, we decided that taking a tour up to Cape Reinga would give us a break, and a chance to enjoy the beautiful scenery. Our tour manager, Robin, entertained all five people on our tour with interesting facts and stories as we headed north. His knowledge and experience was second to none. Experiencing the trip to the top of the North is something everyone in NZ should do at least once in their lifetime, and this is the way to do it! Faultless in every way - if you are thinking about taking a tour to Cape Reinga - then book this one!

In addition (through Mullarkey Bike and Shuttle) we can provide bike hire and shuttle transport on the Twin Coast Cycle Trail.  This cycle trail runs from Opua in the east to Horeke in the west and covers some of Northland’s most stunning scenery. It passes through Kawakawa, Kaikohe, Okaihau and Horeke and is mostly a grade 2 trail.
