Maori Tours Kaikoura

If you’re visiting Kaikoura you’ll want to know more about the indigenous history and culture of the area - one of the most spectacular locations, you could ever encounter.

The best way is to join this family who are members of Ngati Kuri, the sub-tribe of Ngai Tahu – the South Islands largest tribe. Their ancestral links to Kaikoura span more than eight hundred years and through these connections they’re able to share the precise history and legends of the area.

Tours are a combination of laughter, learning and storytelling, delivered in a natural way and specially designed to give you deep insight into bygone days and spiritual values of Maori people, whilst providing an understanding of how they have adapted to the modern world of today.

A range of experiences from two hours to three days are available year round for:

• Private parties of 1-10 guests
• Educational groups from primary to tertiary
• Groups of up to 50 guests
• Cruise Ship clients

A quick look at independent online reviews will show you the high level of satisfaction which has resulted in being awarded NZ’s best cultural experience five times.
