Liked: the bus trip and tour of the most northern tip of the North Island up to the lighthouse with the BEST bus driver and tour guide: Chris. The Tasman Sea meets the Pacific Ocean at the tip of this part of the North Island: BEAUTIFUL.

This was very well done and enjoyable. The Singers and Dancers, the Poi's and the people. They were so good and friendly and they let us take photos with them. One Gentleman even swapped my husband's stick for his Spear. How neat is that!!

The night show is so informative ...it is a great way of understanding NZ culture and history (very well directed) you must do this first and as I said in my other comment on Waitangi Treaty Grounds "do this first and everything else will fall into place" !

We spent an afternoon in January with Kena Alexander. He was an excellent guide, who gave us a really good introduction to Maori culture, which we didn't really know much about. He structured the afternoon according to our interests. He is smart, friendly and just generally a really nice guy to spend an afternoon with. We drove to some important... More
