New Zealand Maori Culture Day Tours

Get to know the Kiwis better by learning about their culture and heritage.

Maori culture tours will take you around New Zealand’s authentic Maori villages and communities. Get a chance to experience and learn more about the country’s heritage by taking part in traditional feasts and performances, discover living Maori villages and sites, myths, legends, customs, art, and many more.

The best place to observe Maori culture is on tribal meeting grounds called marae. There are organised tours departing from Auckland, the Bay of Islands and Rotorua that provide traditional welcome performances where you’ll hear Maori chants, songs, and dances, meet local people, see carved houses, and enjoy a traditional feast or hangi.
