Experience Auckland from a Maori perspective! The Auckland Maori Tour takes you through the Tamaki Makaurau area (Auckland) with a highly knowledgeable Maori guide. You’ll be immersed in New Zealand’s indigenous tikanga (culture), and learn about a rich cultural heritage dating back hundreds of years, as well as Maori leaders who helped shape New Zealand into a modern nation.
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.
In Auckland proper, you’ll take the Tamaki Drive, one of the most scenic roads in the world, and at the Auckland museum, you’ll get a chance to see the Maori Cultural Performance, including the famous Haka War Dance.

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.
