We did not only see Cape Reinga but also did some sandboarding, which was really fun. Even though our guide was really funny, I did not like it that much because it was really touristic and more like you saw the place and in five minutes you were back at the bus.
Avoid this company at all costs! I had a scheduled tour at Rotorua, but the region was set to a State of Emergency with travel restrictions due to Cyclone Cook. When I told them I didn't feel safe and wanted to adhere to the government warnings to stay off the roads, they still refused to refund my tour. After that, they've completely refused to respond to my communications. An awful company that values cash over customer safety, even when their own government says it's unsafe.
Driver came to our hotel 15 minutes early and left before we got there 10 minutes before assigned pickup time. Check in person at the transfer spot was extremely rude and unhelpful. Our driver for the day "Eddy" was the highlight. He was very helpful and knowledgeable about the route, noting lots of history. Overall the tour feels like a big cattle prodding exercise.
Waitomo glow worm caves and Rotorua - return to Auckland. Great way to see the landmark sights in one day, though it was a constant rush to get to the next venue because of the distance. It was worth it, they managed to fit plenty in. Very good quality food for lunch. Tour driver was very knowledgeable. The staff had arranged hotel pick up & drop off but arriving back after a 13hr day, they told me there was nobody to drop my 4 year old and i back to the hotel & we'd have to walk. A crappy end to what was a good day & very unprofessional on their part.

Sightseeing tour from Paihia to Cape Reinga and return. Via 90 Mile Beach with sand dune riding. Spent 90^% of the time riding the bus, meal was excellent, sand boarding good, most of it was 'hurry up, get back on the bus, we must hurry'. Cost was over $300 - for a huge bus ride.

It is a beautiful cruise, we even saw some dolphins, but it is still quite some money that you pay.
This one day tour was pretty great, it showed us everything that it could of in the North in a day. Kauri forests, museum, sand boarding, the Cape, a stop at a wavy beach, the 90Mile Beach and stops at two small towns for local food. But, maybe $115 was too expensive.
Too expensive but totally worth it.
