Far away from touristy performances, we gaint an authentic insight in the traditional Maori world thanks to our wonderful, lovable guide Hare (Harry?). Thank you so much for that extraordinary experience, for showing us very special, spiritual places, medicative plants, awesome views and, last but not least, singing for and with us!

It was amazing to meet Hare and learn about him, his family, hin ancestors and the whole story behind the spiritual way of life. This in addition to the beautiful landscape makes the experience perfect.

I would highly recommend this very authentic, personal tour! Hare (alias Harry) knows so much and is so passionate about the culture of his people. He shares his own family history and Maori vision on life.

Wow....what an experience. We enjoyed the tour from the beginning to the end (which was way longer than 3 hours). If you want a personal tour without al the theatre than this is to one. You can ask questions whenever you want and you can really learn about the beautiful Maori culture.

Thank you so much for your review which is very much appreciated. Hare, our guide, is amazing and our experience is designed to do just that - give you the opportunity to "ask those questions" and to immerse yourself in our Māori Culture.

A must do!! I had the pleasure of spending the morning with Taru, who patiently retold the stories of his ancestors and his connection to the land. Such a personal recount of how the Maori people have lived and learned from the area for centuries. I would strongly urge anyone who is looking for a personalised, honest, “non-gimmicky” glimpse into historical and contemporary Maori life to take the tour! You most certainly not be disappointed! Thank you Taru!!
