Auckland Maori Tour

On this full day, Maori-guided tour, you and a small group of a maximum of ten participants, will get a highly-personalized experience of Auckland’s most famous sights, exploring the city and its surroundings from a first-hand Maori viewpoint. Your guide will lead you through the Te Wao Nui o Tiriwa forest, where you’ll learn about the native flora and fauna and their significance to Te Aao Maori (the Maori World). You’ll see the black sand beaches and windswept cliffs of the famous ‘Wild West Coast’ of Taihauauru, as well as Mount Victoria, the final resting place of Patuone, one of the chief negotiators and signatories of Aotearoa/ New Zealand’s founding document.

Our tour guide was excellent and we spent the entire day all around Auckland getting a great overview of the city and surrounding territory. The Cultural Performance was in the Memorial Hall which we had visited the previous day.

Despite heavy rain on the day, we thoroughly enjoyed this trip. The guide had packed us waterproof coats - very thoughtful as we only had fleeces due to the fact we were travelling all round Australia and NZ and the weight restrictions on the various airlines. Not sure I appreciated how wet and cold NZ would be, unlike Australia. We had a great day out, first at the cultural show, then lunch at the fish market, followed by a trip into the rainforest. Jo, our guide, was lovely and made it a very personal experience - there was only us and one Australian - far better than big coach trips. She provided us with snacks and traditional NZ fare for us to try throughout the day. Great experience.
