@Waimārama Māori Tours

A morning spent immersed in the Maori heritage of the Waimarama Maori Tours, “Experience real New Zealand Maori culture with a unique insight into a day in the life of a Maori elder. Kaumatua are the elders in Maori society, and are respected for their knowledge of tribal history and traditions. They are the keepers of the accumulated history of our people. Their guidance is often sought on all manner of topics in daily life as well as ceremonial matters of Maori tradition. There is an excellent gift shop with one of a kind crafted artisan goods.

Waimarama Maori Tours

You will enter the door as a stranger and leave as a friend. Our guides are elders from our small coastal community of Waimarama where they all still live today. This very special tour gives you unfettered access to the world of Maori rarely seen by outsiders.

Our guides are knowledgeable and articulate and interesting story tellers. With humour and grace they will share their personal insights with you.

“On your way to Waimarama, our coastal village, you will visit the Celestial Compass and learn how our ancestors journeyed from one side of the earth to the other using ancient navigational tools.”

This experience is recommended as it involves personal interaction with an individual who is immersed in their culture, it is in depth laced with the emotion of belonging to the land that is visited. A very special tour for New Zealanders as well as overseas visitors.” as described by Waimarama Maori Tours.
