We had a large group and we all thoroughly the whakatau traditional welcome experience in Queenstown. Joe passionately explained the meanings behind everything he did and we all walked away feeling we learnt alot and had a great time doing it. Joe performed 2 haka and we were amazed at the stories and message that went with them. All our group found Joe really likeable and easy to talk to. If you want a genuine Māori experience and to feel well looked after I'd recommend Wanahaka. 👌

What an amazing trip! Joe was so friendly and went the extra mile to make us feel welcome. His Maori knowledge of the region was second to none. The vineyards we went to were great, being able to try many different varietals of wine and the staff were also very friendly and welcoming. This trip is definitely recommended, especially if you want something a bit more special than your standard wine tour. A must do if you are in Queenstown or Wanaka. Thanks again Joe!!
