Small Group Full Day Tour Coromandel Peninsula

Visit the stunning Coromandel Peninsula on this fun and scenic day trip from Auckland.


  • Convenient pick up and drop off to central Auckland accomodation
  • Small personalised group tour with a maximum of 12 people
  • Visit an area rich in native forest and white sandy coastline beaches
  • Walk beneath the breathtaking rock formation of Cathedral Cove
  • Dig your own hot pool and relax at Hot Water Beach

Renowned for its untouched native forests, white sandy beaches and breathtaking natural formations, the Coromandel Peninsula is simply a must see location when visiting New Zealand.

Your day trip will begin with a convenient pickup from your inner city accomodation and head south around the Firth of Thames Bay towards the Coromandel.

You will be accompanied by a passionate and experienced driver/guide who knows the area well, taking you to some very special spots on your one day trip. The Journey to the Coromandel passes through fresh native forest and along dreamy coastlines before reaching our first stop at Cathedral Cove.

Cathedral Cove is a breathtaking natural rock formation made famous by appearing in The Chronicles of Narnia movie! We take a short walk from the road and walk beneath the sweeping cove giving you the opportunity to take that perfect photo!

From here your tour guide will suggest a few spots close to Hahei or Hot Water Beach to stop for lunch. After lunch we head to Hot Water Beach - a very special geothermal beach that produces natural hot water from below. Dig your very own spa pool in the sand and relax on the beach, taking in the beautiful views of the coastline. Once we've had a decent soak we head back to Auckland, topping off a day trip to be remembered.

Pickup location: Pick ups occur from your inner-city Auckland hotel between 8:00 - 8:30am returning at approximately 6pm. Please remember to state your pickup address as you proceed to checkout.

Per Person $280.00

Worth visiting!

The driver was very friendly and funny! Our trip was perfect because of the nice Brazilian driver. We went to hot water beach and cathedral cove, and also dropped by some places which he recommend. In addition, there was only our group, so it was almost private trip. Thank you very much.

It was fine

As it was small group, the driving was comfortable and cozy Guide was nice and kind the explanation while driving was not detailed but to me it was okay What I felt not good was we were 6 people and the shovel for hot water beach was just one In the explanation it said shovels will be produced and I didn't know it'd be just one for everyone So it was not well prepared for us to enjoy the hot water beach I mean hot water beach without shovel deosnt make sense But anyway the overall tour procedure was fine Guide gave us quite enough time to enjoy each spot And the coromandel is simply must see spot in NZ

Great tour experience of Coromandel Peninsula

We booked this trip last minute and many tours were already sold out. Mana tours was so kind in finding another driver for us, and we had our own private tour for the day. It was very well priced, and the driver was very friendly and informative. We had great conversation throughout the day, but had incredible family time as well. I highly recommend this tour.
