Nau Mai, Haere Mai – Welcome

After 15 years, Donna & Stu Hamilton (-the original owner/operators of “Coast to Coast Tours”-) have retired!

From the conception of “Coast to Coast Tours” in Jan 2001, Donna and Stu’s focus was to deliver a unique tour to their overseas guests. Central to their tour was their historic Homestead and their sheep farm (which has been in their family for almost 100 years). The history of their sheep farm is extensive, and now as the new owners of “Coast to Coast Tours”, we feel this history still demands a place here on this website…we’d like for our customers to know the background of where and why this tour originated.

“We give our best wishes to Peter and Lola, who we are certain will look after their visitors well. Many thanks to our past guests (and their feedback!). We have hosted many people over these years, who have arrived as visitors, but always left as friends”. Noho ora mai rā


“As the new owner/operators of “Coast to Coast Tours”, we remain focused on -YOU- the tourist, to carry on providing genuine, and authentic tours. Unfortunately, Donna and Stu’s Homestead is no longer “open” for tours, but we have many great trips and activities to show you a great time in and around the Auckland region!

We look forward to meeting you soon!” Peter and Lola Engelbrecht
