Our hearts were filled to overflowing with the warm Waimarama reception we received. Our day with all of you could not have been more meaningful, and all 12 of us agreed that our Arch of Ancestors tour was truly a highlight of the time we spent in New Zealand and Australia. Your community is very special indeed, and we cannot thank you enough for your kindness and generousity in arranging such a wonderful day of multi-generational sharing with us.


In one word- 'Excellent!'

Thank you Denise and your family for allowing us to learn about your culture. It was both an eye-opener and very entertaining. More power to you, your husband and your family.

Canberra Australia

Our tour was truly authentic and interesting. We learned so much about their culture and history but also felt the emotional pride they have. This brought tears to my eyes. The whole experience they offer is professionsl but also real. They are not just doing this for tourists- you can see it's also for the benefit of their people and tribe-loved it.


"Well worth going off the well trodden tourist pathways to share a moment on your sacred place. We have come to appreciate through your kindness the beauty of one's connection to the earth and to family - Thank you and we hope to be back"
