Several of our guides for this tour were Maori. They provided excellent information about the Maori culture. When we went to the forest, our guide Mike let forth with songs to the trees, people and surroundings. It was such a wonderful experience for us. We loved it.

The day was interesting and engrossing, with visits to a waterfall, very old church, the oldest giant kaori tree in New Zealand (perhaps 2500 years old) with a Maori guide, and a fun glow worm cave, which we walked through with headlamps.

Guides were friendly and informative. It was great to get away from the main tourist areas. Waipoua Kauri Forest and the Kawiti caves gave great insight into Maori culture.
