This award winning Maori family business is a must for any visitor who wants an authentic Maori cultural expierence. See the famous whale watch in Kaikoura, however allow time for this half daytour with a small group that has a personal touch with the family and appreciation of the local area and Maori traditions. Our expierence was one of the highlights of our trip because we were able to participate in Maori traditions.

They set up a special time to take our group out, THANKS! Great time we loved the Maori Asparagus and Tea and Maori stories. Thank you for welcoming us into your home and making us feel the culture not just see it. A great change of pace from the adrenaline tours in NZ. Thanks again we will always remember our Day with you.

This was a half day tour which gave us a good insight in to the ways and traditions of the Maori people. Maurice and Tanya (the tour guides) wre friendly, knowlledgable and alway willing to answer questions. This is a family run business and we were welcomed into Maurice's home where his wife Heather had prepared a really tasty bite to eat. The tour was interjected with a little human when we were taught a Maori song. Part of the tour included a gentle walk of around half an hour, a good pair of trainers is as good footwear as you need. I would strongly advise taking a camera/camcorder. overall a fantastic experience

This was a brilliant personalised tour. We learnt a lot about Maori protocols and then applied them in a visit to our guide's home for morning tea. We learnt a lot about uses of native plants, got to try some native tea, learn some flax weaving, and learn a song to sing to the great trees of the forest. This tour is a must do in Kaikoura and a great way to be welcomed to the area.
Fabulous, Interesting , informative and fun . We learnt to Hongi , to sing a maori song and some flax weaving . Great little walk in the woods with some of the virtues of Native plants explained . Lovely friendly hosts . Good value .
Our morning with Maori Tours was a highlight of our recent holiday in New Zealand. It is not your typical tourist tour but an intimate (max 8 people) insightful knowledge based experience that is geared for anyone interested in learning more about the local Maori culture and it's history. It is of the caliber that a city museum might offer in the States.
An added bonus is that it is family run by Maori people who have a rich history of leadership as part of their local tribe. There are stories told about their ancestors that really bring this history to life. And their authentic hospitality was revealed when we visited their home for morning tea. These are the kind of people, the type of business and the kind of travel experience I would support anywhere in the world. An exceptional opportunity and one I will treasure.
Owners and Operators of this wonderful experience are the best - real value for money. We highly recommend this to everyone.
My 15 year old daughter was reluctant to do this tour but I am so glad that I insisted. Morris and Tanya are excellent guides with an amazing ability to bring Maori history to life. The forest walk was fantastic even in the rain. It was also wonderful to be welcomed into Morris and Heathers home and to meet 3 of their grandchildren.
I would reccomend this tour for anyone but especially those with teenage children who need to hear about these amazing people and what people can achieve.
Many thanks for opening our minds
