My husband and I felt that this excursion can be summed up in one word EXCELLENT! This family owned and run tour company are wonderful! Hari and his niece Meriana gave us a beautiful insight into the Maori culture. Not only did they explain they sang the love song beautifully. Being a small group excursion we felt that we were given VIP treatment. If you are given a choice, pick this one!
