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.


  • Small-group 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 Devonport, 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.

      Do not think and book this tour at once! We were fortunate to have had Ceillhe, the founder of Time Unlimited Tours. We were thoroughly satisfied with the pace of the tour providing us with ample opportunities to take photos and ask questions. Ceillhe is wealth of knowledge and is genuinely passionate about sharing her knowledge with everyone. I will highly recommend this tour!

      In a word, OUTSTANDING!!!! We were fortunate enough to have Ceillhe Sperath, the founder and director of Time Unlimited as our tour guide and host for the day. She met us at our hotel in a luxurious Mercedes van and greeted us in the Maori language. Little did we know we were in for the day of our lives. As the tour began to unfold, we knew we were being treated to a insightful experience as only someone who is Maori and a naive New Zealander could impart. Throughout the course of the day, we crisscrossed the city visiting many historical sights, had lunch in Devenport followed by a visit to a wildlife park, a black sand beach and a rain forest. Ceillhe provided us with fresh fruit, snacks and beverages throughout the day. At the end of the stop to Peha the black sand beach, Ceillhe put out what I would call a tailgate spread of beverages and goodies native to New Zealand. She explained what they were and encouraged us to try them. She was the consummate guide, never rushing us and giving us time for plenty of photo ops. This was a small group tour and it felt personalized. Thank you for an amazing day that provided memories which will last a lifetime!
