Our 4 hour tour started from Ruatoria approx 2 hours from Gisborne. Our tour guide Monty, met us at Hati Ngati Cafe, drove us to the base of Mt Hikurangi and then up to the Pou (wood carvings) on an awesome off road CAN-AM vehicle. The views were stunning! Monty was awesome and had great knowledge of the land and the stories behind the beautiful carvings. We were in absolute awe of the landscape and how incredible it was to see Hikurangi in all it's glory. We truly appreciated learning more about Ngati Porou heritage and ancestry. The Kai (food) was yum and beautifully presented. To top our day off we had the honour of planting a Native Flax plant and before leaving, we were presented with a beautiful unique gift. We recommend Maunga Hikurangi tours to all!
