Thank you ExperienceKart for making one of the best memories of my life. Karthik the tour guide is such a gentleman and one of the most polite and caring people ever! In this trip I had a chance to visit Tamaki Maori Village, which was one of the sweetest and most spiritual experiences of my life in New Zealand. Where I could feel the beauty of Maori culture and Enjoy the most beautiful Maori performances and music. I also had a dreamy night at Redwoods Treewalk with all those beautiful lightings. This trip couldn't be better. Wish you and your business all the greatest success Karthik, you deserve the best.
