An authentic Māori Experience
We will take you on an escorted journey by passenger van, into sites of cultural significance in Auckland city and share the ancient Māori customs we still practice today.
You will arrive as our guests and leave as whānau; as part of our family.
Your hosts are direct descendants of the Māori Chiefs that helped establish Tāmaki Makaurau – the city of Auckland. As Ahi kā, the people that keep the home fires burning, it is our role to host and care for our Manuhiri, our guests.
