We were lucky enough to take the nighttime walk with Merepaea and it was phenomenal listening to her explain the Maori history and culture and her beautiful chants and prayers. The trees are incredible and awe inspiring. This is a must do for anyone visiting the northern island of New Zealand.

We had a truly wonderful trip with Billy Boy on the twilight encounter. He really engaged our children in the Maori and natural heritage of the forest and we all loved it. A really personal, captivating experience and I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Our guide, Billy Boy, created an unforgettable experience. His chants leading up to the great trees was spine-tingling.

The whole twilight experience in the stunning Waipoua forest is nothing short of magical. The Huge Kauri Trees stand tall above the canopy while our guide transported us back to a time where legends were created. We loved every seconds of it!

We had an amazing experience at Tane Mahuta with Bill, our wonderful guide. He made our visit truly an experience to remember. The beautiful Maori greeting, the flute and the karekia were incredible. Plus the knowledge he showed of the ancient and beautiful kauri was fantastic and we all learned a lot. We all felt very insignificant next to the King of the Forest. Thank you for a wonderful tour.
