An intimate insight into Maori culture

For such a small place, Kaikoura offers a lot to do. Maori culture can be explored in many ways throughout New Zealand, but one of the best is with Maurice and Heather Manawatu’s Maori Tours in Kaikoura.  This is a warm and engaging experience, in which you will be welcomed as family.

Maurice, the grandson of a Maori chief, will entertain and enlighten you with gentle humour, song, stories and history, teaching you more about his culture than you might expect. This is a very personal experience on a tour in which you are invited to take part in a real cultural exchange. Relaxed and friendly, the tour gives an intimate insight into the spirituality of the Maori people. Manaakitanga (warmth and hospitality) prevails and – without giving away the surprise ending – I am sure this is a tour you are unlikely to forget.
