Took this guided tour into the Waipoua forest and were not disappointed. Great guides and their input made the visit to these amazing trees memorable. They managed to convey not only the Kauris importance to Maori but also to all New Zealand. Highly recommend.

We had a very nice walk with Merepaea Tento Tai in Waipoua forest. She told us many interesting stories about culture and Waipoua forest and song beautiful Napríklad songs. I strongly recommend her.

On our night tour, near the end, we were served a very warm tea. It was very good. But there is no food offered. And they would likely frown upon eating during the tour. Eat before.
